Semar Proto UGM: Sustainability for All

Adzim Mardiansjah and his team Semar Proto UGM, Indonesia are passionate about creating a more sustainable future, and go beyond Shell Eco-marathon to address the impact of climate change on the environment.

These students from the Universitas Gadjah Mada see Shell Eco-marathon as a miniature version of the “real world” where they can hone their engineering, mathematics, and management skills. This team has a keen interest in greener energy, cares about sustainability and shares a belief that with just one planet, every generation needs to take care of it.

Team Manager Adzim explains why it’s important to educate and inspire the younger generation from all backgrounds on recycling. They tackle the problem of trash in Indonesia with their initiative at a local orphanage in a way that’s easy to understand, hands-on and fun. This activity of repurposing everyday plastic waste into something meaningful instils a powerful lesson and encourages the youth to be a part of the solution by on taking small steps to address global warming.
