TANGERANG- Talkshow titled “Climate Has Changed, But Not Yet Slowed To Act” which was held at UMN Lecture Theatre. This talkshow was held to coincide with National Waste Care Day on Friday (21/2).
This talkshow presented Selamet Daroyni Senior Project Officer of ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability Indonesia Foundation, Irwan Suryaputra from Tim Gowes and Fani Rachmita Communication Manager Institute for Transportation and Development Policy.
The event was opened by Slamet with a material presentation on the effects of greenhouse gases produced by the burning of fossil fuels. Indonesia has also become a country affected by greenhouse gases, one of which is increased rainfall.
“Actually Indonesia does not increase (rainfall) but because the weather is getting wilder and unpredictable, the rainfall that should accumulate in 6-7 months must accumulate at one time, so it is not surprising on December 31, heavy rainfall submerged some areas in Jabodetabek,” slamet explained.
This anxiety makes many business activists who start to care about the environment. One of them is Gowes, a bicycle rental application, which aims to reduce gas emissions levels in Indonesia. This level of concern is also expected to increase among young people.
“Social media channels can be used as a platform for young people to echo environmental and mobility issues. Young people are also expected to be educated with the environment and try to be more sensitive until they finally act on environmental issues.” Tutur Fani Rachmita Communication Manager Institute for Transportation and Development Policy.
At the end of the talkshow, Tim Gowes expects support from students to save on the use of household appliances and personal transportation that produces emissions gases.
As a form of seriousness to maintain the environment, especially in reducing the carbon footprint, UMN and Gowes.id is realized by cooperation between UMN and Gowes, id.
This cooperation was outlined by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between PT. Surya Teknologi Perkasa (Gowes.id) with UMN.Â In this cooperation, UMN in collaboration with Gowes presents 60 bicycles spread across four umn campus points. In the future, gowes bicycle service in UMN will be increased to 300 gowes bikes that will be spread across several points of UMN campus. (JN/RK)
