Diskusi yang menarik dengan Kelompok Percinta Alam dan klub Fotografi di Tomohon!

Interesting discussion with Nature and Photography clubs in Tomohon!

178190_4550086848915_2024308382_oHari jumat tanggal 9 Juli 2013, Selamatkan yaki kembali menuju Tomohon; hari ini kami akan memberikan materi di Universitas Kristen Indonesia Tomohon (UKIT). Kami telah mengundang kelompok pecinta alam dan Mawale untuk menghadiri presentasi kami. Sepertinya cuaca sedang tidak bersahabat pada hari itu. Hujan sangat lebat turun ketika kami baru tiba. Dengan bantuan Alfian (presiden mahasiswa) kami mempersiapkan ruangan aula tampat pertemuan yang berkapasitas sampai 200 orang. Kami sangat penasaran dengan kehadiran peserta. Setelah kami sempat mencuri perhatian dari Klub fotografer, apakah juga akan jadi sama halnya dengan kehadiran peserta?

1073694_4550088968968_136878728_oFriday 9th July 2013, Selamatkan Yaki were heading up to Tomohon. This day we had a talk at the University in Tomohon: Universitas Kristen Indonesia Tomohon (UKIT). We had invited Natures clubs and Photographer clubs in Tomohon to attend our presentation. The weather was not really friendly at that moment. Heavy rain started pouring soon after our arrival in Tomohon. With the helped of Alfian, (the president of student board), we prepared the university hall, a nice room which could fit 200 people! We were really curious about our participants for today! After getting the attention with our invitation followed by an interesting discussion online, will we have the same attention regarding the turn-out in participants today?

Setelah menunggu selama 1,5  jam, kami harus memulaikan presentasi kami, meskipun jumlah peserta tidak  seperti yang diharapkan, tapi kami sangat senang karena banyak anggota klub fotografy yang hadir, dan kami terlibat dalam diskusi yang menarik sesudah pemutaran film Yaki dari BBC. Diskusi yang sangat menarik. Diskusi yang sangat terbuka, interaksi yang baik antara komunitas yang memiliki cara pandang yang berbeda, namun sangat mendukung program kami, sangat menarik. Terima kasih Mawale Phorographer club, yang sudah sangat perhatian dan mendukung kami! Itulah yang kami inginkan! Suatu kerjasama dengan komunitas local, berbagi ide dan pendapat untuk konservasi Yaki yang lebih baik!

After the rain stopped (1,5 hours of waiting) we started our presentation even if the number of participants  was not really like expected. But in the end we were very happy because many people of the photographer club were attending and the BBC movie we played was followed by a great discussion! Very interesting! The things said were really mind-opened and it was an interesting interaction with other people who have different perspectives but at the same time really support our program, fascinating! This day turned out to be what we are looking for:  a collaboration with the local community and exchanging views and opinions to reach our common goal: improved Yaki Conservation!

Terima kasih kepada Waldo Tulus dari HPA Tomohon, untuk MPAB Apostolos, MPA Paedagogie, KPAB Volcano, PA Rajawali, dan lain lainnya.

We would furthermore like to thank Waldo Tulus, from HPA Tomohon, MPAB Apostolos, MPA Phaedegogi, KPAB Volcano, PA Rajawali and the other Nature Clubs.
