UNPAK - Bima Arya appreciated the thousands of Unpak new students who had begun to get used to carrying drinking bottles for use (tumblers).
"If you start not using plastic bottles for drinks anymore, you have already contributed to your future.
I did not think that many students had started carrying tumblers. Bring your own drink, do not add to the production of plastic packaging. Hopefully this habit does not occur only during orientation.
But forever bring a tumbler like this, "he said when he was a guest speaker in the National Education Preliminary Education (PPBN) activity for new students at Pakuan University (Unpak) at the Army Education Center (Pusdikzi) Center of the Army, Lawanggintung, South Bogor, Wednesday (4/9 / 2019).
Bima also mentioned that the policy of prohibiting the use of plastic bags would also be extended to traditional markets. "The current ban on new plastic bags is in minimarkets.
Since its launch in December, this policy has reduced 1.6 tons of waste per day. So, the policy will be added in the future, if it is still limited to minimarkets, God Willing in the traditional market next year will also be banned.
Now the first socialization. Because there are still many who depend on plastic, "he explained.
Bima Arya also invited students to have high ideals. "If you don't aspire, don't be shallow.
I always say Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, all land among stars. Shoot the moon, if you miss it, it will fall between the stars.
So if you have high ideals. Have aspirations to become president, misses a little to be a minister. Have ideals to be a governor, misses a little to be mayor and so on, "he explained.
Do not forget, Bima Arya invites students to expand friendship, build networks by following organizations or communities on campus.
"Success is not merely what we know, success is more about who we know. Some invite you to the top, some prevent you from falling into the abyss, it may not be because of your knowledge but it could be due to the kindness of other people's hands. Help your friends, "he said.
Meanwhile, Unpak Chancellor Bibin Rubini said that PPBN activities were related to the current situation and environmental conditions, where students must have discipline, responsibility, respect for their leaders to love the environment.
"This activity is to develop abilities and shape the character and civilization of students who are dignified, innovative, creative and competitive," said Bibin.
Bibin claimed to invite Bima Arya to be a speaker because of his capacity as mayor, politicians as well as academics.
"He used to be a lecturer at Paramadina, now he is also a lecturer at Unpak, majoring in Social Sciences. He is a graduate of HI Unpar, continuing to Australia.
And it should be remembered by all that Unpak was born by the Mayor of Bogor in 1980. So I consider that he is from the Unpak academic community, let us welcome his enthusiasm as a young leader, "he concluded. Admin / Humpro Setdakot BogorDownload full storyWithout Plastic
