The year 2016 saw Indonesia pass its Disability Law (No. 8/2016) in references to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The passing of this policy received a wave of positive responses for providing a legal umbrella that ensures equal rights and accessibility in the everyday lives of persons with disability. With this law, persons with disability are no longer treated as mere objects or beneficiaries of aid but are rather recognized a citizen with full rights to basic needs such as education, livelihoods, and political participation.


With a good policy now in place, it is time for stakeholders in cities to work together in supporting and ensuring its implementation. This panel will discuss the many initiatives that will and/or have been carried out by organizations, activists, or regional leaders in bringing the understanding of accessibility and inclusivity within urban spaces into the mainstream, and to explain why accessibility in cities is necessary not simply for the benefit of a limited group of people but rather as a positive change that will affect everyone.


‘Pulau Plastik’ (Plastic Island) : Tackling Our Plastic Waste Problem Through Reducing and Recycling



Tungga Dewi, Kopernik, Bali

In November 2017, a “garbage emergency” was declared in Bali after many of the beaches popular with tourists were inundated with trash. It is estimated that the island of Bali alone contributes up to 110,000 tonnes of plastic waste annually. Similar with other major cities in Indonesia, single-use plastic packaging is very popular in Bali with plastic bags, bottles, and beauty product sachets used heavily across the island. In its war against plastic, Kopernik (a foundation based in Ubud, Bali) identifies two key strategies to address the plastic waste problem: 1) prevention through reduction in plastic waste consumption and 2) mitigation through the establishment of better practices and policies to recycle the plastic waste that’s already been produced. The panel will reflect on these two strategies and invite participants to gain a greater understanding of the plastic waste problem in Indonesian cities, especially tourist cities like Ubud and Solo, as well as the practice of waste separation and disposal by households. It also aims for Increased community activism in order to influence government policy change that substantially limits plastic bag and packaging use. Finally, it aims for a better understanding of the current challenges and opportunities in plastic recycling and processing technique in Indonesia.
