Agustus, 20 2013 – Students from Junior and Senior High Schools across Nusa Penida commemorated Indonesia’s Independence Day by joining conservation competitions organised by Friends of the National Parks Foundation (FNPF).
I Made Damaianto, Assistant Director of FNPF, thanked participants for their enthusiastic response, and said, “We are delighted to see so many young people taking part in today’s event. The more people that participate in this competition, the more people become interested in conservation and the environment.”
The competition, yang memiliki tema "Konservasi di Nusa Penida", diadakan selama dua hari pada tanggal 16 dan 17. Selama beberapa tahun terakhir FNPF telah memainkan peran penting dalam perayaan Hari Kemerdekaan di Nusa Penida, dengan mempromosikan penghargaan terhadap lingkungan hidup.
Kegiatan yang dilakukan meliputi Kompetisi Daur Ulang, bahasa Inggris Lomba Pidato, a Conservation Quiz, and a Drawing and Painting Competition.
Ratusan orang dari masyarakat luas Nusa Penida datang setiap hari untuk mendukung siswa yang mengambil bagian dalam berbagai kompetisi, and there was an atmosphere of excitement, with a lot of laughter and applause.
Pak Damaianto also extended thanks and appreciation to FNPF’s generous sponsors from Humane Society International of Australia (HSI), Maya Ubud Resort & Spa, dan Rotary Club Bali Seminyak, whose generous on-going support of the work of FNPF makes this event possible.
He also recognised FNPF volunteers from Ireland, France, Inggris, Switzerland; the Nusa Penida youth organisation “Forum Komunikasi Krama Muda Nusa Penida”; Penerima beasiswa FNPF yang membantu menjalankan acara, dan terakhir but not least, the principals and teachers from each school for their effort in supporting the students who participated in the competitions.
“Bringing people a little closer to nature is what these activities are all about, “ said Pak Damaianto. “We hope that by building connections to the environment we can encourage the people of Nusa Penida to build their environmental consciousness, and encourage schools in Nusa Penida and surrounding islands to include conservation education activities as part of the overall curriculum.”
