Why does the innovation or project matter?
Indonesia is an archipelago where 2/3 of its territory is sea. In view of this, the sea has enormous potential to benefit the people of Indonesia, both in terms of its biodiversity and as well as its potential as transportation. However, at present the well-being of the Indonesian sea is under threat. Plastic waste, illegal fishing and over-exploitation are threats that the Indonesian sea is currently facing. This initiative aims to implement a campaign to engender love of the sea through the Marine Buddies (#TemanTamanLaut) movement. This movement invites the wider community to love the sea through recognition of the problems that exist and active involvement in activities that may provide solutions to tackling problems that arise in the sea.
