To commemorate Indonesia Youth Pledge Day, #AksiMudaJagaIklim is innitiated

Jakarta, 27 October 2021 – EcoNusa Foundation launched a youth collaboration effort called #AksiMudaJagaIklim to commemorate Indonesia Youth Pledge Day. The big #AksiMudaJagaIklim campaign, which will take place simultaneously at 76 locations across Indonesia on Thursday (28/10), is a real action by young Indonesians to protect forests and ocean ecosystems from climate change. 

On Wednesday (27/10), a #AksiMudaJagaIklim Press Conference was conducted with the theme of Collaborative Actions: Together Protect the Climate, Blue the Sea, Green the Earth. Bustar Maitar, CEO of the EcoNusa Foundation, Dr. Kusdiantoro, S.Pi., M.Sc., Plt. Head of the Research and Development Department, and Dr. Kusdiantoro, S.Pi., M.Sc., Plt. Head of the Research and Development Department, were among the speakers.

Indonesia has been plagued by rising air temperatures, irregular droughts and rainy seasons, as well as extreme weather such as tremendous storms. These big symptoms of the climate problem should serve as a catalyst for young Indonesians to become more conscious of the necessity of safeguarding the environment, particularly its forests and oceans, and to speak up about it.

The global issue is real, according to Bustar Maitar, CEO of the EcoNusa Foundation, and we must respond to it by working together to avoid climate change from now on. "To raise awareness of the current and future climate problem, joint movements, particularly among young Indonesians, in the protection of natural resources must be supported and encouraged," Bustar added.

According to the results of the 2020 Population Census, generation Z (8-23 years) and millennials (24-39 years) now account for roughly half of Indonesia's overall population. This demonstrates that young Indonesians have the ability to create positive changes. For the sake of the planet's future, including changes in better natural resource governance.

According to Dr. Kusdiantoro, S.Pi., M.Sc., the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) is committed to developing the marine and fisheries sectors using a blue economy strategy, and it is thought that growth may be achieved while coastal and marine ecosystems are preserved.

"We hope to have a beneficial impact on the ecology as well as provide inspiration and advantages to the community through this joint movement," he said.

According to Bryan Auriol, Coordinator of #AksiMudaJagaIklim, #AksiMudaJagaIklim events are taking place at 76 locations around Indonesia at the same time, with three primary locations being Jakarta, Makassar, and Ambon. "Tomorrow's #AksiMudaJagaIklim will include 10 implementing partners, 19 support partners, and 109 communities," he added.

Tree planting, mangrove planting, beach and river clean up, green mussel planting, coral reef transplantation, movie screenings, and other #AksiMudaJagaIklim events will take place on October 28th, 2021. #AksiMudaJagaIklim asks young Indonesians to translate the Youth Pledge into concrete environmental action that may be carried out in everyday life to have a beneficial impact on the environment and global climate.
