MAYANGAN – Gubernur Jawa Timur Khofifah Indar Parawansa mengimbau warga Jawa Timur menanam dan memelihara pohon setiap merayakan ulang tahun. Karena dengan melakukannya saat bertambah usia, sama saja dengan ikut berperan menjaga lingkungan.

“Ibu Menteri Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan meminta kita melakukan penanaman dan memelihara pohon. Beliau sudah melakukan penghitungan secara scientific jika setiap warga Indonesia bisa menanam 25 pohon dan dipelihara,” ujar Khofifah.

Bagaimana cara mewujudkannya? “Setiap berulang tahun kita menanam pohon. Satu pohon ini sangat memorable dan valuable. Misalnya saat usia 17 tahun menanam, nanti bisa diingat waktu usia sekian saya menanam ini,” jawabnya.

“Semai tradisi murid di masing-masing pendidikan. Bisa hidup sehat karena mereka bersahabat dengan alam. Ada ekologi yang harus kita jaga,” imbuh gubernur.

 Beat air pollution, pengendalian polusi udara menjadi titik tekan pada Hari Lingkungan Hidup Dunia. Karena menurut WHO, setiap tahun sekitar 7 juta orang meninggal dunia karena polusi udara. 70 persen berada di Asia Pasifik. Sedangkan di Indonesia, tercatat 62 ribu penduduk meninggal karena polusi udara.

Kementerian LHK mem-breakdown, kendalikan polusi udara dengan tema “Birukan langitku, hijaukan bumiku”. Jawa Timur mengambil tema mari bersinergi wujudkan udara bebas polusi.  “Sinergikan elemen strategis di negeri ini supaya udara bebas polusi. Inilah mengapa adiwiyata menjadi penting di sekolah. Karena kepedulian lingkungan menjadi pengetahuan dasar bagi murid untuk diimplementasikan pada kehidupan sehari-hari,” katanya.

Sebagai bentuk keseriusan komitmen pengendalian lingkungan, puncak Hari Lingkungan Hidup Jawa Timur di Kota Probolinggo juga diisi kegiatan penanaman pohon cemara udang oleh Gubernur Khofifah, Pangdam V Brawijaya Mayjen Wisnoe Prasetja dan Wakapolda Jatim Brigjen Pol Toni Harmanto bersama Wali Kota Hadi Zainal Abidin beserta Ketua TP PKK Aminah Hadi ZA dan Wawali Mochammad Soufis Subri dengan Wakil Ketua TP PKK Diah Kristanti Subri.

Penanaman tersebut dilaksanakan di sisi barat Pelabuhan Perikanan Pantai Mayangan Kota Probolinggo, Minggu (28/7). Dan, secara kebetulan sesuai imbauan gubernur, Sabtu (27/7) istri wali kota tengah berulangtahun. “Ini sama seperti imbauan tadi ya, kan ulang tahun, jadi menanam pohon untuk merayakan ulang tahun,” celetuk Habib Hadi-sapaan akrab wali kota, ketika sedang menanam cemara udang bersama sang istri.

Sejumlah rangkaian kegiatan dilaksanakan dalam rangka Hari Lingkungan Hidup. Pagi harinya dilaksanakan gerakan bersih-bersih pantai bersama pemerhati lingkungan. Kegiatan tersebut bertujuan memberikan kampanye terhadap lingkungan penyadaran masyarakat dan lingkungan di pesisir pantai mangrove.

Rencananya, Dinas Lingkungan Hidup Jawa Timur akan menggadakan cleaning up bersama serentak di Jatim. “Untuk memotivasi kesadaran sinergi lingkungan bagi kota kabupaten mewujudkan komitmen dalam mengatasi lingkungan,” ujar Kepala DLH Jatim, Diah Susilowati.

Rangkaian kegiatan siang harinya penandatanganan 23 perusahaan dalam program adopsi sungai brantas, penyerahan penghargaan kinerja pengelolaan lingkungan terbaik, penghargaan adiwiyata, kemah hijau, pameran teknologi dan UMKM, penyerahan penghargaan Kelurahan/desa Berseri. Dua kelurahan di Kota Probolinggo berhasil meraih Kelurahan Berseri yaitu Wiroborang dan Mangunharjo. Keduanya berada di wilayah Kecamatan Mayangan.

Sebelumnya, Kota Probolinggo juga punya kegiatan bersifat edukatif. Seperti Gerakan Operasi Simpatik Sampah (GOSS), festival lingkungan, kegiatan lomba mural tingkat SMP dan SMA serta lomba fashion show daur ulang untuk masyarakat umum. Dan, kegiatan clean up di pantai Mayangan yang menghasilkan kurang lebih 300 kg sampah. “Secara konsisten kami melibatkan seluruh elemen baik unsur komunitas masyarakat dan unsur swasta selaku stakeholder,” sambung Wali Kota Habib Hadi.

Pesannya, mulai saat ini bawa tumbler sendiri dari pada beli air minum kemasan yang dapat menimbulkan sampah. (famydecta/humas)

East Java Governor Khofifah Indar Parawangsa urges the East Java people to plant and preserve trees in each moment of celebrating a birthday. By doing this, people have a role in preserving the environment.

“The Minister of Environment and Forestry has urged to plant and preserve the trees. She’s done the math. Every person can plant 25 trees and is able to preserve them all,” Khofifah said.

Ho to accomplish this mission? “In each moment of celebrating our birthday, we have to plant one tree. One tree could be highly memorable and valuable. When you plant a tree right in the moment of your sweet seventeen, in the next few years, you will remember that you’re the one who planted the tree,” she said.

“This method should be a tradition for the students. They can live healthy by making interaction with the environment. There is an ecology we have to maintain,” the governor added.

Beat air pollution, control of air pollution are the main points on World Environment Day, because according to WHO, every year, 7 million people have died of air pollution. 70 percent of those are from the Asia Pacific. In Indonesia, there are 62 thousand people died of air pollution.

The minister of Environment and Forestry has made an effort to control air pollution by exploring the theme “Make the Sky Blue and the Earth Green”. Meanwhile, East Java uses the theme “Synergy in Creating Air without Pollution”. “Synergize the strategic elements in the nation to be free of air pollution. This is why adiwiyata, an environmental award, is highly important for schools because preserving the environment must be a basic knowledge to be implemented in daily life by the students,” she said.

As a form of commitment in environment control, on the Environment Day held by East Java Province in Probolinggo city, Governor Khofifah, along with other officials including Probolinggo Mayor Hadi Zainal Abidin and Vice Mayor Mochammad Soufis Subri planted casuarina tree.

The tree planting was held on the west side of the Probolinggo Port, Sunday (28/7). And, right at the moment, as what the governor has urged, the wife of Probolinggo mayor is celebrating her birthday. “What a coincidence. Birthday moment being celebrated by planting a tree,” the mayor said spontaneously while planting the tree with his wife.

Many events were held in commemorating the Environment Day including cleaning the coast. It has a purpose to campaign the importance of preserving the environment, especially for those who live in the coastal area.

The Agency of Environment of East Java Province is planning to hold a cleaning up activity simultaneously in East Java. “To motivate the awareness of the environment for cities/regencies in creating the commitment of preserving the environment,” the Head of East Java’s Environment Agency, Diah Susilowati said.

Apart from the cleaning up activity, other activities were also held including signing an agreement with 23 companies in the program of Brantas river adoption, handing over the award for the best environment management, adiwiyata award, green camping, technology exhibition, and handing over the award of the best Green Urban Village. Two urban villages having the award were Wiroborang and Mangunharjo urban village. Both of them are in the Mayangan Sub-district.

Probolinggo city has also held an educative activity such as environment festival, mural competition, recycling-product fashion show, and clean-up activity at the Mayangan coast which collected 300 kg waste. “We consistently involve all elements including the people and private sectors as the stakeholder,” Mayor Habib Hadi continued.

As for the launching of free plastic waste, Governor Khofifah, East Java’s Deputy Chief of Police, Mayor Habib Hadi and his wife Aminah Hadi Zainal Abidin made a real action by using a tumbler (drinking water bottle). By doing this, they urge people to use the tumbler instead of general bottled water which will increase the waste volume.
