Achievements

Activity

  • sustainability and equitable access to resources: the application of innovation, technology, and education in developmental activities is the principal driver of sustainable growth is quite similar with mine.

  • I think sustainability, climate change, and the environment is one, not only the one, of fundamental issues that need to be addressed in the policymaking process, because it influences the other issues such as poverty, health, human rights, and so on.

  • As my passion before, creating open access to data transparency and public participation in environmental management and governance, my purpose is to create equal opportunity between the representatives of NGOs and states to play roles in the policy-making process. Through equal opportunity during the policy-making process, I believe it will result in a...

  • What the thing that challenged, not to prevent, me in order to achieve my purpose become the real change that I want to see is unprivileged that I have to and I'm carrying out to handle. One of the basic unprivileged is the language gap. I also hope that I have the same opportunity to sign up at the international NGO one day.

  • 1. What we can sustain? We, or personally I, can improve my skills in policymaking to serve as a policy advisor at environmental NGOs. I think NGO policy advisors play fundamental roles in order to result in transparent and accountable policies.

    2. What we can do? Currently, I conduct "learning by doing" in my organization to influence government policy on...

  • My passion is open access to data transparency and public participation on environmental protection and management.

  • Saya tertarik untuk belajar tentang pembuatan kebijakan karena sebagai karyawan LSM saya perlu memengaruhi proses pembuatan kebijakan. Oleh karena itu saya berharap kursus ini dapat memberikan pengetahuan mendasar ini bagi saya pribadi dan organisasi saya.

  • Thank you Adrian and James for the material that is very practical and relevant to my work!

  • To be honest, I have already taken similar courses from other universities in Future Learn. My opinion syllabus in week 1 is very practical and relate in my work that I can really do in my daily life. Very insightful!

    I hope the syllabus in the second week is strategic and also useful for my work.

  • In my work, I present user platform https://bebassampah.id/ percentage data based on age segmentation using pie charts. Meanwhile, for user platform data based on cities using bar charts.

  • I do feel very comfortable. The keywords are clear and the examples are practical.

  • Andre Prasetyo made a comment

    Thank you for the inspiring course which really helped me not only to become a manager but a leader in initiating and fostering the sustainability ethics in my organization.

  • I think the Amazing Store should 'walking the talk' the commitment that has been stated by the CEO, and publicize the efforts to improve the lack of their supply chain system to the public or 'talking the walk'.

  • Transparency for Amazing Fashion suppliers can have an impact on customer confidence in their products and some customers will check the authenticity of information that has been published by Amazing Fashion.

  • Innovation is a way for businesses to achieve sustainability goals.

  • Green business is one that reduces the risk of environmental impact from its business activities by using non-harmful material, whereas sustainable business is one that ensures that business activities still allow extractive material but ensures the production process to the distribution of products produces a minimum environmental footprint.

  • I will provide incentives to my staff in the form of trips to the tourist areas that apply the principle of eco-tourism.

  • Question 2:

    In my opinion unfortunately the majority of companies only rebrand their products in handling the pressure of increasingly green-aware consumers without reforming their business.

  • Although I agree that government regulation is important to create fair business competition, in my opinion, government regulation is limited to providing incentives and disincentives. Because it needs to be considered also that the ability of each business is different and cannot be forced entirely into regulations that create unfair equity.

    Because the...

  • They are in the stage 3 because it does not look like there is any obligation from the government but rather was born from their initiative.

  • The first change for consumers and producers is the demand for transparency of the supply chain to the public. This can have an impact on product reputation, which requires producers to be more responsible for ensuring their supply chains are sustainable.

    Why campaigns like 'change your shoes' can bring change to the community because of the campaign...

  • The scarcity of investment potentials that focus on sustainability is compounded by doubts about new markets that are willing to pay more for the added value of sustainability.

  • The main challenge for corporates to shift their business into sustainability is to improve its business system from a linear economy into a circular economy rather than only rebrand their product.

  • 1. Recruit and assist the refugee and new migrant community in finding jobs.
    2. Provide opportunities for the local community, especially for young people.
    3. Collaborated with local fashion brands and designers.
    4. Save fabric and textile waste from landfill.
    5. Produce trans-seasonal garments which are well made and long-lasting.

  • I agree with Mashaer's view, in my opinion #ShowYourStripes visualization is made very simple to understand because the aim is to attract a wide public who cannot or is not interested in seeing complex visual data.

  • 1. Informative
    2. Representative - Relevant
    3. Clearly distinguishable

  • On the issue of waste management, I think we can apply crowd-sourcing by the public to provide the garbage data that they produce from home. From this data, we can analyze what is the average amount of waste per capita, what types of materials are used the most, even what brands are consumed by the public.

  • 1. Programming
    2. Data warehousing or harvesting
    3. Quantitative aptitude and statistics

  • In Indonesia there is a startup that focuses on public reports to be followed up by the government named https://www.qlue.co.id/. Report data will be published along with the status of follow-up from the authorities.

  • Advantages: Can apply public-verification or checking data, get feedback from the public parts of the data that must be measured.

    Disadvantages: Reducing the potential for data giving by the data source because it will be published, if the data displayed results in a bad reputation with the data source there is the potential for a dispute, potential misuse...

  • In Indonesia, there is a start-up that has reached the decacorn category called Go-Jek. In the beginning, the main business sector was on-demand online transportation similar to Uber, but specifically motorcycle. Now they already have many business sectors, such as Go-car, Go-food, Go-play, and others. I think companies like this certainly need environmental...

  • This is a very interesting campaign, unfortunately, I only found out now. Hopefully, the #ShowYourStripes campaign will continue to reverberate throughout the world.

  • Graphical or infographic data is an effective campaign material for the wider public to simply visualize the results of complex studies. Data is so important to show where we are at the moment and how we can set targets to achieve.

  • I think a lot of data has been published about our environmental conditions, such as climate change, land conversion, extreme weather, and others that generate environmental protection initiatives in various regions throughout the world.

    In my opinion, it is important to collect data on the impact of environmental protection initiatives on environmental...

  • I think all activities on the gadget now contribute to "big data", starting from using search engines, social media, to Google maps and navigation.

    Why does the data from my activities contribute to big data because the data I provide are accumulated from other people's activity data.

  • Thank you for the ocean journey, so many tutors and mentors from various institutions and countries reflect that there is collective action to increase awareness about our oceans. Hopefully, the participants who finished this course can continue this awareness into action to the wider community.

    I am committed to carrying out my small role for the...

  • My view of human knowledge about the ocean has changed after attending the 4 weeks course. Apparently, knowledge about the ocean is abundant. But unfortunately science is not accompanied by the development of regulations to regulate and protect our oceans, especially high seas. Therefore, in my opinion, there are still many to do lists to influence...

  • In my opinion, the most urgent area to protect the ocean is international waters, because for national waters it is the responsibility of the jurisdiction of each country. Whereas for high seas still applies the principle of freedom of high seas instead of herritage for mankind proposed by the G-77 countries. Therefore, until now exploration has only been...

  • The organization I work for, called the Greeneration Foundation, campaigns for the plastic diet and zero waste movement, especially in tourism and coastal areas. We created a community empowerment program called EcoRanger by not only providing knowledge about the protection of the marine environment and eco-tourism but also training in campaign skills,...

  • Although ISA is considered a police force to regulate seabed mining, there are many limitations in ISA's authority. For that, I think, we need to immediately produce a new institution that regulates biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction under UNCLOS.

  • I wonder why there's no data on whale-shark, but it's a wonderful knowledge.

  • I prefer to choose option 2 because it's a balance between ecological protection and the local economy at the same time.

  • The meaning of "explored" for me is not how many species of marine life are discovered or the deep seafloor mapped by researchers. But how broad is the knowledge of the general public about our oceans that generates awareness of current ocean conditions, threats of ocean damage, and concerns for the protection of marine ecosystems. Therefore, for me, it is...

  • Yes, I also just found out now

  • My opinion map shows the legend of the monsters in the sea to show how little human knowledge about the sea and how difficult the sea to be conquered by humans due to so many challenges. Unfortunately, with the increasing breadth of human knowledge about the oceans now makes the sea easier for us to exploit.

  • See you later to the next course guys.

  • This course is very interesting with material that uses a variety of platforms, ranging from articles, videos, and others. Looking forward for the next course!

  • Technology is not only in the form of machines but also in the form of ICT. I have and will continue to develop ICT platforms for waste management, which support the informal sector of waste management, such as waste banks, waste collectors, and others. Please kindly check https://bebassampah.id/ (Zero Waste Indonesia) which is also available in English.

  • All technologies that are able to support SMEs and socio-enterprises that promote local economic growth.

  • In my opinion technology development should depend on human needs, not human needs that must change as a result of technological development. In my opinion this is due to the consumerism lifestyle where we are willing to work hard only to buy goods that are not basic needs.

  • Based on Ellen McArthur, half of the world's population lives in cities and it's expected to grow to 68% in 2050 result in consumption 70% and 80% of the world's natural resources and energy supply, including food. The solution is not to improve the technology in the agriculture area where the most are in villages, that need more packaging for the goods...

  • I prefer with the Ecotopia that inline with my personal vision.

  • I think all of the movie trailers show us how the impact of natural resource scarcity. This will, and has already happened, resulting in a war for survival, no matter how sophisticated the symbols of modernization and technology existed at that time.

  • I am not anti-technological development. But my personal opinion is that the process of human evolution is still happening. To overcome the environmental impact, humans must change their mindset and lifestyle, not depend on technological developments. Just as the evolution from gathered to settled society in the past, we must evolve from an extractive and...

  • I think the Paris Agreement is the most memorable for sustainable development efforts in the world. It is seen that need a long journey at many conferences that blocked by some countries, previously. However, in the COP 21, countries' delegations succeed to achieve the agreement to be signed. Although the USA decided to withdraw from the agreement after the...

  • It needs a very long time to incorporate sustainability into the UN development goals, although there were some environmental grassroots movements and sectoral/regional agreements. Start from, the first and the second UN development decade that focused on economic development. In the third UN development decade also still focused on poverty.

    However, in...

  • Andre Prasetyo made a comment

    As I mentioned in the last week, it's difficult to determine which the most and least important between the goals because it created to connect to each other and have to effort to achieve, as the tagline of the SDGs "No One Left Behind." But if have to choose one of it's, I prefer to choose the 17 Partnership to Achieve the Goals.

  • Wow, I'm sorry I just found out about this course on weekends so I have to cram all endowed and insightful knowledge in one day. I reflected on the meaning of sustainable development. Although we recognize that there are still many challenges that we must overcome, there have been many initiatives undertaken. Just how we can expand the impact of small...

  • For me, it is difficult to determine the 5 lowest priority SDGs because for me each goal has a correlation with each other. If one goal is not achieved then it will affect the difficulty of the achievement of other goals.

  • Even though the SDGs are expected to create opportunities for new economic models and job opportunities, they are seen as eliminating the existing economic system that creates parties that maintain "business as usual". Therefore, there is a need for collaborative action and radical economic model shifts to achieve the goals as in goal number 17. This is to...

  • I think population growth is still considered to be a challenge to the scarcity of resources going forward, but like Rosling's opinion the solution to overcome it is not to reduce the level of reproduction radically because the number of children has stagnated at 2 billion, but to change people's mindset and behavior from over-consumption to more sustainable....

  • According to World Bank Data, Indonesia population growth has reached its peak in 1967 at 2,719% and continues to decline in trend to 1,134% in 2018. The percentage is almost equal to the average growth of the world's population (https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SP.POP.GROW?locations=ID-1W). However, according to World Meters, Indonesia's population is...

  • Rosling's key points are the size of family results in life expectations which also affect population growth. According to Rosling's view the rapid population growth since 1960 affected by the smaller birth rates that affect the increase in human life expectations, and accompanied by improvements in public health and knowledge. In 2000, children's population...

  • In my view, Collier argues that poverty can be resolved by the authority, nationally, or even internationally through their policy or system. On the other hand, Bono's point is the party that can address this issue is the people itself through people's power. My personal view agrees with Bono's perspective, without disagreeing with Collier's argument totally,...

  • Are tiny houses the next big move to sustainable living? - It's mentioned more perspective of ecological sustainability in a small scale. However, it does not examine more of the economic sector and the success story at the national level.

    Can tourism ever be fully sustainable - It's a great and insightful article. The author can use the perspective of the...

  • I think based on the Indonesian context which also affects into global scale are climate change, ocean acidification, biodiversity loss, and land-use change. In my opinion, it takes by the over-population and over-consumption behavior that depend on destructive exploitation activities to take natural resources. However, as already mentioned in this video, we...

  • In my personal context, who advocates the sustainable consumption and production issues, my vision of development is improving public access to clean water, food, sanitation, and waste management as the fundamental needs, rather than growth in production and consumption of fast-moving consumer goods that creates over-consumption.

    This vision that we are...
