Wujudkan Pelestarian DAS Ciliwung, TFI BINUS Berkolaborasi Dengan Komunitas Ciliwung Depok (KCD)

December 6, 2021

Jakarta, 4 Desember 2021—Teach For Indonesia (TFI) kembali berkolaborasi dalam rangka menjaga dan merawat Daerah Aliran Sungai (DAS) serta meningkatkan social awareness tentang lingkungan bagi masyarakat bersama Komunitas Ciliwung Depok (KCD). Kegiatan ini dihadiri oleh perwakilan dari BINUS University yaitu, Andyni Khosasih selaku CDC-TFI Manager, Irma Irawati Ibrahim selaku Deputy Campus Director BINUS Senayan, Diaz Muhida selaku CDC-TFI Community Program Section Head, Hendry Kurniawan Kasim selaku CDC-TFI Community Program Officer, dan Ary Putra Emellyo selaku Brand for International Program.

Kegiatan Green Action pada (4/12) diikuti oleh 28 orang anggota dari Teach For Indonesia (TFI) untuk melakukan penanaman bibit pohon di sekitar wilayah sungai ciliwung. Pencegahan yang dilakukan dalam pengelolaan ciliwung merupakan inisiatif baru bagi mahasiswa/i BINUS University International untuk turut berkontribusi menjaga ekosistem alam. Pengelolaan DAS dimaksudkan sebagai upaya dalam mengendalikan hubungan timbal balik antara sumber daya alam dengan manusia dan segala aktivitasnya.

Keterlibatan Komunitas Ciliwung Depok (KCD) sebagai komunitas yang peduli dengan kondisi sungai ciliwung merupakan salah satu cara untuk tetap menjaga Daerah Aliran Sungai (DAS) di wilayah Depok agar tidak rusak. Selain itu, dengan menjaga, merawat, dan menanam pohon, lingkungan warga juga akan aman dari dampak negatif seperti tanah longsor, banjir bandang, sampah dari warga, dan bencana lainnya. Dengan dilakukan penanaman pohon, bibir sungai tidak akan tergerus oleh arus sungai.

Pengelolaan Daerah Aliran Sungai (DAS) akan berjalan efektif dan efisien jika pelaksanaannya melibatkan masyarakat sehingga akan memunculkan kesadaran secara langsung dalam memelihara kelestarian lingkungan, khususnya di wilayah sungai ciliwung. Disisi lain, kegiatan Green Action akan mengembangkan kemitraan antara BINUS University International dengan komunitas masyarakat terutama komunitas peduli lingkungan seperti KCD.

Jakarta, December 4, 2021—Teach For Indonesia (TFI) is collaborating again in order to maintain and care for the Watershed (DAS) and increase social awareness about the environment for the community with the Depok Ciliwung Community (KCD). This activity was attended by representatives from BINUS University, namely, Andyni Khosasih as CDC-TFI Manager, Irma Irawati Ibrahim as Deputy Campus Director of BINUS Senayan, Diaz Muhida as CDC-TFI Community Program Section Head, Hendry Kurniawan Kasim as CDC-TFI Community Program Officer, and Ary Putra Emellyo as Brand for International Program.

The Green Action activity on (4/12) was attended by 28 members from Teach For Indonesia (TFI) to plant tree seedlings around the Ciliwung river area. Prevention carried out in the management of ciliwung is a new initiative for BINUS University International students to contribute to maintaining natural ecosystems. Watershed management is intended as an effort to control the reciprocal relationship between natural resources and humans and all their activities.

The involvement of the Depok Ciliwung Community (KCD) as a community that cares about the condition of the Ciliwung River is one way to keep the Watershed (DAS) in the Depok area from being damaged. In addition, by maintaining, caring for, and planting trees, the residents’ environment will also be safe from negative impacts such as landslides, flash floods, garbage from residents, and other disasters. By planting trees, the river’s lip will not be eroded by river currents.

Watershed Management (DAS) will run effectively and efficiently if its implementation involves the community so that it will raise awareness directly in maintaining environmental sustainability, especially in the Ciliwung river area. On the other hand, Green Action activities will develop partnerships between BINUS University International and the community, especially communities that care about the environment such as KCD.
