Depok City and UIII Committed to Transforming Depok into a Blue and Green City

December, 06 2021


Imam Budi Hartono, the Vice Mayor of Depok, and senior city officials visited UIII on Wednesday (24/11/2021) to participate in a tree-planting ceremony on the UIII campus.

The event at UIII was to plant trees donated by KLH (the Ministry of Environment and Forestry of the Republic of Indonesia). The tree planting is a sign of UIII's commitment to providing green open space. Both UIII and the city of Depok believe they will benefit from it. This has the potential to become a living monument to civilization, science, and culture.

UIII's vision and missions, according to Imam Budi Hartono, can give a good impact on Depok. The green open space has the potential to alleviate Depok's air and water pollution issues. With a little luck, we might be able to postpone climate change. The Vice Mayor feels that by making this move, Depok will become a Blue and Green City.

UIII will plant a variety of plants, including avocado, star fruit, and silk trees, and others. Professor Komaruddin Hidayat, the Rector of UIII, stated that the variety of trees is a symbol of UIII's diversity in the future. He said that only creative people dare to welcome diversity, which can lead to innovative ideas.

This event also addresses the possibility of a collaboration between UIII and the Depok City government. Green open space has the potential to be turned into agrotourism and a community park. Not only do UIII students enjoy it, but so does the rest of the community. (ad)
