NEXUS Indonesia organized its first Salon in Jakarta with theme “Sustainability Check Up & Incubating Ideas on the Workers Safety”. At this event, ANGIN team had the opportunity to mingle with more than 20 exceptional young individuals, who have interest to tackle certain social and/or environmental causes. For the whole night, we were struck by their story and their passion in doing their impactful works; that ranges from educating women migrants, creating alternative solution to plastics, to improving the live of farmers and fishermen.
While these individuals have different backgrounds (from family foundation to social enterprises and business professionals) and aim to achieve a diverse set of impact missions (from women empowerment, environmental protection, to poverty alleviation), their common passion and spirit resulted in an engaging dialogue and fruitful idea exchange.
This Salon was also aimed to support Fahreza & Janhavi from http://www.tft-earth.org/. Through their work, they found that the workers at the end of the supply chain are exposed to dangers to the wild animals, accidents like cuts being hit by heavy fruits. As there is a high no of accident rate, the workers refused to wear the safety equipment. Through this Salon, Fahreza and Janhavi facilitated a discussion on how to address the issue. In the short term, they also plan to organize a hackathon to collect more insightful solution to this challenges. Currently, they are welcoming ideas and support from everyone (Any thought?
