Kick off MESTI


Partnership for Indonesia’s Nature Sustainability

YKAN and UNIQLO collaborate to support waste reduction programs in the Indonesian sea. One of the targets of this collaboration is to overcome the waste problem in the waters of Wakatobi National Park. UNIQLO Indonesia launched a series of products made from 100% recycled polyester featuring UNIQLO Global Sustainability Ambassador, Doraemon, with a green “Sustainability Mode” appearance.

On another occasion, YKAN together with Chevron and Pact launched the Mangrove Friends of Tambak Lestari (MESTI) Program in Tanjung Redeb, Berau Regency, East Kalimantan Province, on September 6, 2023.

With Chevron's support, the MESTI Program will run for three years in the villages of Pegat Batumbuk, Tabalar Muara, and Suaran. The MESTI program aims to protect endemic mangrove biodiversity and key species, develop alternative livelihoods to strengthen the livelihoods of coastal communities and promote sustainable aquaculture.

Simultaneously with the launch of the MESTI Program, the 29th Thought Leadership Forum (TLF) was also held with the theme "Nature-based solutions in mangrove restoration and sustainable aquaculture for coastal resilience in Berau Regency."
