Bang Kodir is the director of the Ciliwung Institute, a network of communities along the Ciliwung, dedicated to the preservation of the river’s ecosystem.
Together with the inhabitants of the area of Condet, as well as with other members of the network, Bang Kodir facilitates activities ranging from mapping the river’s biodiversity and garbage dumps to developing research, educational initiatives and cultural events.
“The river is an eye into everything, whether it is culture, science or other problems. We can use a river of indicators of problems related to culture or even mechanisms of a country. If a river is clean, the government management and coordination is good.”
Project directed by Alessandra Renzi.
