Government’s Time Capsule expedition came to Universitas Gadjah Mada on Thursday (5/11). The whole group also witnessed some works produced by UGM students being displayed at the Balairung Hall. The Time Capsule is part of the Let’s Work initiative launched by President Joko Widodo during the celebration of Indonesia’s 70th anniversary. Starting from Banda Aceh and launched by State Secretary Pratikno, the entourage will go to 34 provinces in Indonesia.
Team chairman, Jay Widjajanto, said the Time Capsule made the visit to UGM as in this place there appeared intellectual thoughts and many of these had been implemented at the national level.
“We want to explore more the thoughts and aspirations coming from UGM,” said Jay.
UGM Student Affairs Director, Dr. Senawi, said UGM was proud to become the first campus to be visited by the Time Capsule. The team further invited UGM academic community to project the thoughts and aspirations in the future.
“We want to evaluate what has been done during the 70 years of Indonesia’s journey. Success starts from a dream, followed by aspirations and strategy to make that happen,” he said.
Senawi reaffirmed UGM’s identity as a national and democratic campus would not go astray.
The Time Capsule further received a-10 resolution from the students for the future of Indonesia. It contains: the realisation of energy independence; health facilities and infrastructure; harmonious and equal living with the global economies; management of natural resources and environment sustainably; prosperity of fishermen, farmers, and labourers; stability, sovereignty and certainty in law, economy, politics and social and cultural aspects; as well as development equal and fair for all.
