As a ceremony inspector, he said that various events had been prepared to enliven Jakarta's anniversary event called Jakarta Hajatan. It was in line with the theme 'Collaborate, Accelerate, and Elevate'.
"Jakarta is a city of collaboration that is rich in stories. In every story, we want to encourage a collaboration system in a collaborative city paradigm, where the interaction pattern that is developed between the government as a platform provider and citizens, including millennials, as co-creators," he mentioned, as quoted from Jakarta PPID Press Release.Jakarta Supports Conscious Living Program for Plastic Waste Management
In realizing a developed city, he assessed that it needed the support and involvement of its citizens. Therefore, Jakarta owned a driving platform to realize collaboration between elements called +Jakarta (Plus Jakarta). Through Plus Jakarta, Jakarta residents could create various changes, and innovations, and make new history.
Until now, various elements of society including artists, start-ups, MSMEs, humanitarian agencies, housewives, students, and communities had jointly moved in sharing roles to collaborate to achieve common goals.
Moreover, collaboration could be established between the Jakarta Government and citizens. The collaboration was expected not only to provide solutions to Jakarta's problems but also to shape Jakarta into a more developed and livelier city.
"Because this city has so many human resources, either NGOs, entrepreneurs, observers, analysts, content creators, and others. Even, it can be said that no city in Indonesia has as many resources as Jakarta," he conveyed.
He stated that residents had a very large potential to be empowered properly and sustainably. According to him, it would be a waste if in building a city only the government was involved, without the participation of its citizens.
"Knowing this, a collaborative approach is very important in dealing with various problems and challenges that may arise in achieving the ideals of an advanced Jakarta with happy citizens," he closed.
