UNS — The #DemiIndonesia Goes to Campus event which is a collaboration between Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta and detikcom had been successfully held. In the first session, the #DemiIndonesia Hebat event was held offline at the Auditorium G.P.H. Haryo Mataram on Wednesday (15/3/2023).
The #DemiIndonesia Hebat event was a discussion forum session with great and inspirational figures presenting Prof. Jamal Wiwoho as the Rector of UNS, Gibran Rakabuming Raka as Mayor of Surakarta, Alfito Deannova Ginting as Chief Editor of detikcom, Cinta Laura Kiehl, and Kanjeng Gusti Pangeran Adipati Arya (KGPAA) Mangkunegoro X. During the event the program was hosted by Budi Adiputro and Arie Putra.
In his remarks, the Rector of UNS, Prof. Jamal Wiwoho expressed his gratitude for the enthusiasm of the participants for the success of the 47th Dies Natalis UNS event. “I am very happy that even though there are thousands of participants, you can still maintain order,” he said.
On the same occasion, Prof. Jamal also advised that success or failure in life is normal. However, the failures you get must be a lesson to make life better.
“Even though we have worked hard, the results will be between success and failure. So, when we really want to succeed, prepare carefully. No success comes suddenly. But what makes difficult is how we can maintain this success,” Prof. Jamal said.
In addition, on the same occasion the Mayor of Surakarta, Gibran Rakabuming Raka, explained the strategy for growing the economy in Solo. Gibran admitted that the economic condition in Solo had slumped due to the pandemic. However, to get the wheels of the economy moving at that time, Gibran admitted that there were many activities in the city of Solo, such as music events and physical development.
“I also changed the way I work as mayor. It is like I apply the way of thinking as a Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This is because Solo is very tricky. It doesn’t have agriculture, mining, farms, it doesn’t have anything. Therefore, the way we work must be changed immediately, “Gibran explained.
Meanwhile, Alfito Deannova Ginting as Editor in Chief of detikcom expressed his gratitude for the presence of #DemiIndonesia in Solo which was very welcomed by students and young people.
“Through this #DemiIndonesia event, hopefully we can invite all people to always think positively about Indonesia. Remembering that they will be the main leaders to realize Indonesia Gold in 2024,” he said.
Alfito Deannova Ginting added that the #DemiIndonesia event was a movement initiated by detikcom. Therefore, we began to introduce this activity to young Indonesians. It is because Indonesian young people have a very big role for the future progress of Indonesia.
As for Cinta Laura Kiehl said that we have to be a person who is discipline, smart, competent, innovative, and creative. Because of that way, we can deliver our dream of going international.
Furthermore, KGPAA Mangkunegoro X also shared his experiences while leading Mangkunegaran, Solo. He admitted that there are many positive and negative things that can be taken from what he has done.
“I have experienced failures, but that’s normal for me. Because the most important thing is how we can learn from this failure,” KGPAA Mangkunegoro X said.
After the #DemiIndonesia Hebat event, it was followed by the #DemiIndonesia Siap Kerja event. In this event, detikcom opened recruitment and psychological tests for prospective employees and apprentices. The final event there is #DemiIndonesia Bahagia. The event is a form of collaboration of Indonesian musicians. Humas UNS
