If you’re not yet familiar with the term, SDGs are the global sustainable development goals formulated by world leaders at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in 2015 which are to be achieved by 2030. One of the goals in SDGs aims to preserve the earth and its environment; namely life below water (SDG 14) and on land (SDG 15).
To make these goals a reality, we require collaboration, teamwork, and sharing across institutions that demonstrate similar concerns. Khiri Campus too aims to achieve these goals by providing several environmental programs for both high school and university students. At the same time, Khiri Campus collaborates with local organizations while involving youth from all around the world through hands-on participation.
In Indonesia, environmental conservation and preservation activities are critically needed. Recent research shows that Indonesia is the second biggest country contributor to marine plastic debris, with around 1.29 million tons of plastic ending up in Indonesia’s ocean. Therefore, Khiri Campus works with various local organizations and provides an environmental program in Indonesia to contribute to tackling these environmental challenges.
Our environmental programs invite participants to develop an understanding of challenges and the influence of local culture on ecological sustainability. During our wildlife conservation program in Bali for example, we take students to the final disposal facility for both households and tourism industries. This final disposal facility is located on the beach and instantly turns into mountains of trash. At this location, students can witness the impact of mass tourism on ecological sustainability, not only for life on land but also life below the water.
During the program, students will also be able to directly tackle environmental issues by connecting with local organizations that focus on several environmental aspects, learning their initiatives, and exchanging ideas for best practices. Then, students are invited to do hands-on activities with various communities like rehabilitating wildlife habitats, restoring coral reefs, completing creative actions in waste management, and enhancing common environmental awareness through community sharing session.
Khiri Campus’s wildlife conservation program in Indonesia also equips students with replicative ecological abilities, and students are asked to implement the knowledge in their hometowns and maintain global green action.
