Cinta Lingkungan “mencari dana” dengan menulis

Agustus 23, 2010 at 9:20 pm 4 komentar


Aku cinta lingkungan, aku cinta desaku, aku cinta Indonesia…..!!!! banyak orang berkata dan banyak orang mengucapkan semua itu mengaku cinta dan peduli lingkungan namun tidak melakukan upaya untuk membuktikan bahwa kita benar-benar cinta pada lingkungan itu. Penulis mempunyai prinsip lakukanlah sesuatu walau sekecil mungkin dan cobalah berkarya yang memberikan manfaat bagi banyak orang.  Saat mengikuti pengajian seorang ustad berceramah bahwa orang yang sukses adalah “orang yang dapat memberikan sesuatu sebanyak-banyaknya kepada orang lain” bukan “orang yang memiliki sesuatu untuk dirinya sendiri”.

Terinspirasi dan termotifasi hal tersebut maka dengan sedikit pengalaman dan keterbatasan yang dimiliki maka mencoba untuk berkarya, sebagai seorang pelajar dan sedikit bisa menulis maka hal itulah yang dapat saya kerjakan. Dengan menulis berupaya untuk melakukan perubahan dan memberikan dampak yang lumayan untuk lingkungan dan masyarakat diantaranya mengikuti kegiatan PKM seperti disini. Tidak hanya itu saja untuk melakukan sesuatu kebaikan maka Allah SWT memberikan jalan yang tanpa disangka-sangka oleh umatnya. sebagai contoh tanpa sengaja penulis diketemukan oleh salah satu alumni dari BYEE (Bayer Young Environmental Envoy) namanya mbak Nurul. Nah dengan ketemu mbak nurul banyak diberikan pengalaman penyelamatan lingkungan dan juga aksi nyata untuk cinta lingkungan. Dan sayapun disarankan untuk menulis semacam artikel/makalah untuk dikirim ke PT Bayer Indonesia MidPlaza I, 12th Floor , Jl. Jendral Sudirman Kav. 10-11 Jakarta 10220.

Makalah yang harus dikumpulkan adalah dalam bentuk bahasa Inggris dan ada ketentuan-ketentuannya dan informasi itu diperoleh dari sini dengan bimbingan dan bantuan dari mbak nurul yang saat itu bekerja di salah satu NGO di Jogja maka dapat tertulislah makalah tentang program cinta lingkungan oleh saya bersama karang taruna di desa saya. dan Berikut isi makalahnya dalam bahasa Inggris.

Save The Ecosystem of Nglanggeran Mount through An Ecotourism

Although Gunungkidul has been identified as the poorest district in Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta province, it has many remarkable natural sites that have not been much exposed. One of them is an enormous rocky hill that standing about 700m (asl), Nglanggeran Mountain, which nowadays is stepping to become a tourism place. The problem is low economic condition of people surrounding makes them disregard its ecosystem sustainability by converting forest area become farmland and wasting debris around the mountain. Those practices clearly undermine its development as sightseeing. Realizing the conditions above, I have concern to make a difference in some ways.

Since 5 years ago, I have been involved in Karang Taruna Bukit Mandiri, a local youth organization that has been entrusted by village elders to manage Mt Nglanggeran as tourism place. From that time, I and my friends have made so much effort to manage and develop it particularly in providing public facilities such as build hiking-tracks, toilets, rest-point areas, etc. However, those above have not been able to deal with environmental threats as a result the damage gradually becomes visible.

Now, as I am a chief of the Karang Taruna, I have capacity to influence the local young and community to get Nglanggeran environment better. In the short term of my administration period, I would like to propose an event “Nglanggeran Mount Cleanup and Reforestation” as a part of tourism promotion. The purposes of the activity are:

  1. To grow awareness of surrounding cleanness by encouraging local people, Karang Taruna member as well as visitors to clean up the environment of Nglanggeran Mount
  2. Afforest the site where used to be green area by planting fruit plantations, thus the harvest will be able to go back to the community and the Karang Taruna also.

This event practically will collect debris along the hiking track and surrounding Nglanggeran mount by local people, visitors and the public, therefore I expect a learning process to concern about cleanness of their environment which support the healthy life and an ease. While the tree-plant activities will not only be offered to the participants on the event day, but also to all visitors of Nglanggeran Mount on the next times.

I and my friends in Karang Taruna will be the event organizer cooperating with any groups who have concern on Nglanggeran Mount such as local agriculture groups, student nature’s clubs, government bodies, etc. Equipments for collecting debris such as trash bags and waste trucks would be provided by collaborating with Agency of Culture and Tourism as well as Agency of Cleanness. In cultivating fruit plantations, farming tools would be provided by cooperating with agriculture groups and the fruit saplings would be provided by cooperating with Agency of Food Plantation and Horticulture. With support from many parties, there would not be so much expense we will spend that I estimate about Rp 300.000 from Karang Taruna’s fund will be enough for operational costs. However, the participants will be charged a participation fee, no more than Rp 10.000 per person, for entry ticket and beverages.

I expect many people will contribute in this activity so that the energy of making sustainable environment can be spread widely. Social network websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Kaskus will be used to reach them who concern about environmental activities anywhere they are.

A complete reforestation process will be accomplished by visitors itself, since continuous control and caring to reach optimum result. Therefore, local community must be involved in that process which then they will get benefit from the optimum harvest. We, Karang Taruna, will also start to cultivate fruit plantations in a portion land of Nglanggeran Mount as what village elders have been authorized to us so we might be able to get beneficiaries from the harvest and use it to improve our service for the visitors.

I have expectation that Nglanggeran Mount still could provide clean, green and sustainable environment to hold up local people life both directly and indirectly. Directly means the people get enough crops for their living by the support of sustainable productive environment and indirectly means the people may get benefit from environmentally friendly tourism activities in Nglanggeran Mount. This kind of balance and support from the public and government will keep the wheel of life running sustainably. I do realize that this is just the beginning step to maintain and protect the environment of Nglanggeran Mount. There are still many things we have to do to pass the good environment capacity over next generations.

Makalah diatas sudah saya kirimkan untuk bisa mengikuti seleksi di Jakarta namun kurang beruntung karena diikuti oleh seluruh mahasiswa dan masyarakat se Indonesia. Mungkin dikarenakan masih banyak kekurangan-kekurangan yang dimiliki oleh penulis juga. Walau makalah tersebut tidak lolos seleksi namun Program yang telah dirancang tetap dijalankan bersama Kelompok Pemuda Karang taruna di Desa saya. Alhamdulillah teman-teman, masyarakat juga berantusias. Berikut Dokumentasi kegiatannya.
