As the best university in Indonesia, UI is actively developing programs regarding Sustainable Development Goals. In its journey towards sustainable development, the UI Academic Civitas receives support from partners in various sectors.

One of UI’s partners is Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Jakarta. Not long ago, the Secretary of the University, dr. Agustin Kusumayati, M.Sc, Ph.D., leads UI Public Relations and Public Information Openness (PIO), accompanied by the Director of UI Graduate Career Development and Alumni Relation, Ahmad Syafiq, M.Sc., Ph.D., Head of the UI Public Relations and PIO Bureau, Dra. Amelita Lusia, M.Sc., Head of the UI International Affairs Office, Baiduri Widanarko., MKKK., Ph.D., Head of the UI Archives Office, Wahid Nurfiantara., MTI, and other UI delegates, paid a visit to MRT Jakarta to discuss collaboration in organizing the UI anniversary and explore the possibility of holding a PR campaign between UI and MRT.

The mission is to educate and spread the healthy living campaign to the community. “We continue to promote the campaign to use public transportation on campus through collaboration with various partners such as campus buses, electric bicycles, and providing friendly paths for pedestrians,” said Agustin Ph.D.

Head of Corporate Communication & Branding Department MRT Jakarta, Angga Satria Perdana, positively welcomed the UI delegation’s arrival. “As one of the national strategic projects, the construction of the MRT encourages sustainable development. We welcome and are ready to collaborate with UI,” he said.

Furthermore, he said, the MRT Jakarta project also aims to reduce traffic jams, increase economic growth, improve the quality of life of the community, and regenerate the city. Based on data from the Ministry of Health in 2022, one way to prevent non-communicable diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and stroke, is to increase physical activity.

“We hope that today’s meeting will be a start of strategic actions of both parties to support the government’s program in the healthy living community campaign,” said Dr. Augustine.
