NIES’ vision transcends the traditional notions of sustainable development, offering a fresh, holistic perspective.
As Indonesia finds itself at a pivotal juncture, deciding its environmental fate amidst rapid growth, Anies’s “humanizing energy” concept could be the beacon the nation needs.
Dive deeper into his progressive ideals and the unyielding dedication he offers to Indonesia’s environmental future.In an age where countries waver between political gain and environmental conservation, Anies Baswedan, a presidential candidate, has made a standout commitment.
His passionate proclamation, “For us, now the energy we are pushing is no longer renewable energy, but humanizing energy,” highlights an evolved perspective on sustainable progress.
Speaking at the ‘Indonesia Energy Transition Dialogue 2023’ in South Jakarta, Anies fervently communicated that environmentally friendly development has been, and will continue to be, at the core of his strategy.
This is not a new revelation. During his tenure as the Governor of DKI Jakarta (2017-2022), Anies made tangible strides in environmental advocacy. His residence, powered by a solar plant, stands as a testament to his dedication. The success of the JakLingko transportation system, one of his projects in Jakarta, further underscores his commitment.
Anies laid out the five pillars he believes are crucial for realizing his vision of ‘humanizing energy’: holistic and sustainable governance, stakeholder collaboration, funding innovation, a just energy transition, and intervention in both demand and supply. He urged attention to these pillars as they form the bedrock of Indonesia’s sustainable future.
His dedication isn’t just in words or policies. Anies emphasized his readiness to attend every forum discussing environmental issues, positioning himself not just as a policy-maker but as an active advocate.
He stated, “When there was a call to convey the idea of recording work, recording achievements, we were ready to come to send a message to everyone that the environment is not a theme for knowledge, but a theme for implementation.”
While other candidates might overlook the urgency of environmental matters, Anies’s persistent emphasis on it – even if it’s not the “main agenda” during elections – underscores his dedication. It’s a reminder that for him, the well-being of Indonesia’s earth and nature remains an undying priority, regardless of political climates.
With his forward-thinking approach towards energy and his consistent track record, Anies positions himself as not just a presidential candidate, but as a visionary for an Indonesia that harmonizes development with environmental consciousness.
As the election nears, voters must ask themselves: isn’t it time to prioritize a leader who understands that our environment isn’t just a matter of policy, but a fundamental right for all Indonesians?
