2013 Earth Day: Becoming Mentor at The 3rd Indonesia Climate Change Education Forum and Expo

Did you know that every one degree Celsius rise up on the air can causes the extinction of 80% coral reef? It is one of climate change effects due to the increasing of Green House Gases concentration on the atmosphere. This miserable condition gives significant influence on ecological deficit and environmental damage all over the world. Approximately 40-60 millions people in the world suffered malaria disease and about 25-40% species is endangered as the result of climate change (Stern, 2006).

National Council on Climate Change, Republic of Indonesia, proudly presents The 3rd Indonesia Climate Change Education Forum and Expo (ICCEFE) which held on April 19-21, 2013 at Jakarta Convention Center. This forum facilitates public sector companies, private sector companies, non-governmental organizations, elementary school students and junior high school students in getting mutual understanding about the urgency of climate change adaptation and mitigation in Indonesia.

It's been an honor for me to become the mentor for students of SMP Negeri 280 Jakarta in this forum. My involvement here as the invitation from friend of mine, Bambang Sutrisno (The 10th Eco-generation Ambassador to Indonesia) who also joined this forum as the mentor. There are about 30 students whom accompanied by me. I explained about the guidelines to use manual book for students at the beginning. Every student needs to collect the stamps as it can be read "CLIMATE CHANGE 2013". These stamps located randomly, either in public or private sector companies' booths or NGO's booth. They have to go around the hall to get the stamps needed. When the students completely collect all stamps, they will get prize from National Council on Climate Change. The aim is to persuade students in getting much more information about climate change at every single booth. Getting the stamps are not as easy as reversing your palm hand. They need to clearly answer the question related to climate change, provided by the booth's organizer. 

I'm hoping that these children not only take it as a forum to gain more economic benefit or prize as the result of collecting the stamps, but also they can influence other people to be more aware about climate change issues based on their understanding from this forum. Since we know the climate change issues which arise today, it's one step closer to stick together in making sustainable actions for the earth, to be a better place indeed.
