President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has called on G20 Leaders to take concrete actions to preserve nature.

According to the President, countries must cooperate in preserving earth because it belongs to everyone including future generation.

The President told world leaders that Indonesia has been taking numerous concrete actions to protect the earth by, among others, limiting deforestation and promoting mangrove restoration.
