SDG 13 - Climate Action

Indonesia is one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change impacts for youth as a renewal cadre is expected to put climate change as an important issue. Climate change has been felt significantly due to global warming, increased carbon emissions and greenhouse gas concentrations due to human activities and is a challenge to development today. Besides that, the perceived impact is also like extreme rain, landslide, flood, tornado

In our community we have a program to plant the mangroves. For this year, we plan to build in the coastal area of Tambakrejo, Semarang. This program will collaboration with the forest protection team (in Indonesia called with "Lindungi Hutan") where we will carry out the activities together. This activity as a form of our real action in reducing or preventing climate change that is currently happening. We hope that with our concrete actions, we can reduce the climate as well as encourage the community or young people to care or participate in responding to current climate change issues.
