goodmorningpapua.com – The Youth Twenty or Y-20 delegations conduct environmental conservation activities by releasing hatchlings and planting tree seedlings. The Y-20 delegations visited the historic islands of Mansinam Island and Lemon Manokwari Island. Various environmental conservation activities were carried out, namely tree planting, releasing hatchlings and preserving coral reefs in the waters of the Doreri Sea, Manokwari, West Papua, Saturday (18/6/2022).
The Y-20 delegations were welcomed by a traditional Papuan dance from the Doreri Tribe, Manokwari at the event.
“Today the Y20 delegations team planted trees. This is a message to the whole world. We must preserve nature for the benefit of our children and grandchildren in the future,” said the Head of the Y-20 West Papua Local Committee, Melkias Werinussa.
There are two Y-20 agendas that became the voice of West Papua to be submitted at the Y-20 Summit in Bali.
“These two themes are in West Papua Province. We hope that later in the trial there will be voices from Manokwari to the G-20 Summit in Bali. The two themes are youth employment, then economy and diversity,” he explained.
Meanwhile, the Head of the West Papua Youth and Sports Service, Hans Lodewyk Mandacan, said that planting trees on Mansinam Island is a form of environmental conservation.
