Thanks Australian Embassy – Jakarta, Indonesia for sharing Nick Taylor story as remote volunteer at JARI. We were so fortunate to having him and other two remote volunteers, Kerrie and Mikaela who contribute their expertise to our organisation and the communities we work for.m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=354209803407538&id=100064555635455Perkenalkan relawan jarak jauh Australian Volunteers Program Nick Taylor yang telah bekerja dengan Juang Laut Lestari (JARI), organisasi konservasi laut yang berbasis di Lombok, Nusa Tenggara Barat. Nick bekerja dengan tim JARI untuk meningkatkan kemampuan media dan komunikasi mereka. Beberapa proyek yang didukung Nick sebagai relawan Australia termasuk mendesain ulang situs web JARI, membuatnya lebih ramah pengguna, dan membantu merancang dan mengimplementasikan beberapa kampanye media sosial, termasuk kompetisi menggambar Laut Sahabat Kita (The Ocean is Our Best Friend) – sebuah program pendidikan yang bertujuan untuk membantu pelajar sekolah dasar meningkatkan pengetahuan mereka tentang lingkungan laut dan isu-isu lingkungan setempat. “Saya mengambil penugasan relawan jarak jauh karena saya melihatnya sebagai peluang bagus untuk tetap terhubung dengan Indonesia meskipun ada hambatan yang ditimbulkan oleh pandemi COVID-19, ditambah sebagai seseorang yang memiliki minat lama dalam masalah sosial-lingkungan, saya tahu ini adalah peran yang tepat untuk saya,” kata Nick. “Aspek yang paling memuaskan dari penugasan ini adalah membangun kontak baru dan menegaskan kembali koneksi yang ada dengan organisasi mitra serta kesempatan bekerja dengan berbagai individu. Dengan penugasan ini, saya telah meningkatkan kemampuan saya dalam mencari solusi dari sebuah permasalahan dan menjadikan saya lebih mengapresiasi beragam perspektif.” Meet Australian Volunteers Program remote volunteer Nick Taylor, who has been working with Juang Laut Lestari (JARI), a marine conservation organisation based in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara. Nick worked with the team at JARI to increase their media and communications capabilities. Some of the projects Nick supported as an Australian Volunteer included re-designing JARI’s website, making it more user-friendly, and helping with the design and implementation of several major social media campaigns, including Laut Sahabat Kita (The Ocean is Our Best Friend) drawing competition – an educational program that aims to help primary school students increase their knowledge of their local marine environments and environmental issues. “I took on the remote volunteering assignment because I saw it as a good opportunity to remain connected with Indonesia despite the barriers posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Plus, as someone with a long-held interest in socio-environmental issues, I knew this was the right role for me,” said Nick. “The most fulfilling aspects of the assignment was establishing new contacts and reaffirming existing connections with partners organisations and working with such a broad range of individuals. By doing this assignment, I’ve expanded my problem-solving abilities and appreciation of diverse perspectives.” See MoreSee Less
