On April 2, 2019, the Purnomo Yusgiantoro Center (PYC) welcomed ClimateWorks Australia, represented by Meg Argyriou and Guntur Sutiyono. ClimateWorks Australia is a non-governmental organization which consists of researchers, strategists, collaborators, and grant-makers who are committed to climate action. ClimateWorks Australia believes in the power of collective philanthropy to response the climate change issues. The organization has participated in several energy and climate change projects.
In the initial meeting between the two organizations, both presented their institution’s backgrounds, shared experiences on energy development, and discussed the current energy issues in Indonesia. The meeting ended as they agreed to strengthen their relationship in research and development collaboration, to exchange knowledge, and to enrich their experiences on facing some energy issues in the future.
