On 6 June 2022, the Indonesian delegation went to City Hall of Góra Kalwaria and took a tour around the area. They visited education center for children with special needs. The team was introduced to the city's residents' initiatives to form and manage non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with an orientation to fostering residents with special needs. Residents with special needs are educated to be able to be independent in carrying out valuable skills so they can work not only to meet their ends meet, but also to blend in with the society.

After that, the delegation visited several places, invested by Municiality, in EU Green Deal context. They visited City Government-Owned Enterprise which has a role in managing clean water and cleaning the city. In Gora Kalwaria, there are 7 sources of groundwater that are managed and distributed to people's homes whose quality is strictly controlled so that tap water can be drunk directly without being heated. The distribution of water to people's homes is carried out by utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS) technology which allows the condition of leaks or theft. After that they visited a sport center that are also managed by Municipality, which adopted a system that is energy efficient.

This activity is in line with EU Green Deal. With that, the EU is increasing its climate ambition and aims at becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. The Commission has therefore revised the Energy Efficiency Directive, together with other EU energy and climate rules, to ensure that the new 2030 target of reducing greenhouse gas emission by at least 55% (compared to 1990) can be met. (learn more: https://energy.ec.europa.eu/topics/energy-efficiency/energy-efficiency-targets-directive-and-rules/energy-efficiency-directive_en).

This activity is done under a project entitled “A Sustainable Urban Marketplace: Participatory urban governance for safe, green and inclusive fresh market management in Indonesia”. The project is implemented by the Municipality of Góra Kalwaria and Municipality of North Halmahera.

The activity is a part of the project supported by the European Union in Indonesia #PartnershipsforSustainableCities2020. The project is funded by the European Union within the EuropeAid grant scheme.

During the Pentacost celebration on 5 June 2022, the Indonesian delegation learned about the importance of maintaining the culture and environment in society. Both Indonesian delegation and Gora Kalwaria locals were performing their own dance, introducing and exchanging their cultures. Watch this video to see the amazing encounter of both cultures!

This activity is in line with European Union’s New European Agenda for Culture, as European Commission recognises that cities and regions across the EU are at the forefront of culture-led development and constitute natural partners for experimentation, anticipating trends and exploring models of social and economic innovation (learn more: https://culture.ec.europa.eu/policies/culture-in-cities-and-regions).

On 5 June 2022, the Indonesian delegation went to Góra Kalwaria river port to celebrate Pentecost with the locals as a promotion of local tourism and local culture of Góra Kalwaria. After that, they went to Zamek Czersk, a castle of the Masovian Dukes. They received a reconstructive event with XVI century Knights, which is an exemplary workshop for tourist promotion in North Halmahera. North Halmahera is rich in historical and cultural places that could be optimized to attract local and international tourism.

27 May 2022 was the last session of the first part of North Maluku Urban Good Governance Academy. This session was discussed about public space adjustments to climate change-related challenges lectured by an architect, Karol Szparkowski. Revitalization and renaturalization of urban infrastructure is needed to adapt to climate change challenges. Not only that, a consolidation session as the closing of the Academy was also held. A technical architecture knowledge is needed by the participant especially for the marketplace that will be revitalized in North Halmahera as part of the project.

Thank you to all the lecturers and participants of North Maluku Urban Good Governance Academy!

Recycling and Circular Economy Concept was discussed at North Maluku Urban Good Governance Academy, 20 May 2022. The session was lectured by Alessandra Godina and Natalia Riabova from Sustainable Strategies Network Foundation. A circular economy is fundamentally different from a linear economy. To put it simply, in a linear economy we mine raw materials that we process into a product that is thrown away after use. In a circular economy, we close the cycles of all these raw materials. Closing these cycles requires much more than just recycling. It changes the way in which value is created and preserved, how production is made more sustainable and which business models are used.

This session also discussed the zero waste hierarchy and the importance of Refuse, Rethink, Redesign, Reduce, and Reuse. Besides, downcycling and upcycling were also introduced. With downcycling, the products created as a result of the production are generally of lower value than the products the materials used came from. The reason for conducting downcycling is simple - certain materials cannot preserve value, but completely discarding them would be both a waste of money and detrimental to the environment. With upcycling, the products of the upcycling process generally have higher value in comparison that the materials came from. The reason for upcycling being at all possible is often connected to technological advancements made between the development of the original products and the point at which it was subject to the upcycling process. The participants were also exposed to circular business models, that showed that business could still make profit through this system.
