Born and raised in Jakarta, capital city of Indonesia, Astira is on a mission to raise the critical issue of Global Warming which affects the entire planet, not excluding Indonesia. Assisted by the El John Pageants Team, she visualizes her thoughts and opinion on the issue in the video to be presented at the event. Here is the link to the video:
Aside from addressing environmental issues, Astira is now rehearsing to stage a traditional Indonesian dance that will surely captivate the audience and judges.
Far from simply participating in a competition, Astira will also show how environmental sustainability plays a vital role in Indonesia's ecotourism development. Blessed with magnificent and diverse natural landscapes, Indonesia holds some of the most fascinating natural wonders of the world that have emerged as prime global tourist destinations. Among these are Raja Ampat in Papua, that is not only a diver's ultimate paradise but also home to 75% of the world's known coral species. There is the Tanjung Puting National park, home to the gentle Orang Utan giant and the Komodo National Park, the only natural habitat left on earth for the prehistoric Komodo Dragons.
An example of indigenous wisdom in protecting the environment is also the traditional village of Wae Rebo on Flores Island that has unique houses. Being part of the ‘Ring of Fire', Indonesia boasts a staggering number of volcanoes, one of which is Mount Rinjani on Lombok islands,regarded as having the best vantage views . These are just a few among the many incredible ecotourism destinations that will make one rethink one's way of life on how we each should respect, treat and preserve Nature and world's Cultural Environment.
