On 30 July 2019, H.E. Mr. Songphol Sukchan, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand to Indonesia, presided over “SCG Sharing the Dream 2019” Scholarship Award Ceremony. Mr. Anusorn Potchanabanpot, Country Director of SCG Indonesia; Dr.Nani Hendiarti Anugrahadi, Assistant Deputy Minister for the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Resources; and Mr. Gita Wirjawan Founder of Ancora Foundation also attended the opening ceremony. This event is part of SCG’s scholarship program for students in Indonesia. This year, SCG awarded 400 scholarships to high school students and 10 scholarships to university scholars. SCG began this program in 2012 and since then has already awarded over 2,300 scholarships to Indonesian students.
The theme for this year’s event is “Passion for Better: Circular Living” which reflects on the concept of sustainable development and the focus on maximizing resources while keeping waste at a minimum (make-use -recycle). This event not only represents the responsibility that SCG has to the society but also the value the company places on the importance of education and youth consciousness towards the environment. The Royal Thai Embassy will work together with SCG in the future to create a model of a sustainable development village in Indonesia.
