Indonesia as one of the countries that is very vulnerable to natural disasters is considered to require socialization to handle them. In fact, not all sections of society in this country are able to accept the socialization held by the government. Therefore, PSSAT UGM held a discussion titled “Community Resilience on Maritime Disaster in Indonesia” with Dr. Rahman Hidayat, assistant deputy of Assistant Deputy of Infrastructures for Shipping, Fishery, and Tourism of Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs, and Dr. Widjo Kongko at PSSAT UGM Library (16/03/18). The discussion in the afternoon was also attended by Prof. Dr. Judith Schlehe, Professor of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Freiburg, Germany, some researchers from PSSAT, and academics.
As a form of cooperation between CESASS UGM with University of Freiburg, Prof. Dr. Judith Schlehe accompanied by a researcher from CESASS UGM, Vissia Ita Yulianto, shared their knowledge in the form of workshops (08/03/18). The workshop held in the Indonesian Room of CESASS UGM Library presented the topic of waste management which is still one of the problems in Indonesia. This problem is certainly very influential with the stability, including the stability of undersea ecosystems. Therefore, this study took a case study in the southern maritime area of Yogyakarta which includes part of Gunung Kidul Regency under the title “Waste, Worldview, Morality: An Inclusive Approach”.
