AV Peduli got special invitation to attend the celebration of World Environmental Day which was held in President Palace - Jakarta, with theme from UNEP "CO2, Kick the Habit, toward a low carbon economy".
In this ocasion, Indonesian President gave "Kalpataru" Award for the environmental heroes and also "Adipura" Award for the cities that can manage the environment well. Beside that, it's an honor as Indonesia can get "Global Leadership" in the Plant for The Planet UNEP for Indonesian success in tree planting programs, wherein AV Peduli also support that international program and got "Billion Tree Campaign" Certificate and National Award in success supporting that Green Indonesia National Program.
AV Peduli made this World Environmental Day as the launching of distributing environmental VCD freely to 7.000 schools in Indonesia, by handing VCD to the Mr. & Mrs. of Indonesian President, Mr. & Mrs. of Indonesian Environmental Minister, and Mr. Emil Salim. AV Peduli also distributed the VCD to the people & driver on the street of "Bunderan HI".
In that VCD, there are 10 songs about environment which were sung by 3 generations (children, teenagers, and old people) so that all elements can save this earth hand in hand. The background video of that VCD showed about environmental protection activities by AV Peduli in local, national, and even international events so that it can motivate people to conserve environment.
Beside in President Palace in Cipanas, the celebration of World Environmental Day was held in Hotel Crown. AV Peduli was proud because we can meet the Heads of Indonesian schools which we have been visited to socialize environment wherein they got "Adipura" Award in that event. We shared many things to plan the next periodic socialization.
It was such an unforgettable moment because we can meet many environmental lovers like Mrs. Dewi Mutik who receive the award of Green Indonesia together with us, and also meet Mr. Togar Silaban from Environmental Department in Surabaya.
