In 2017, Indonesia’s eccentric minister for maritime affairs, Susi Pudjiastuti, was named as one of BBC’s 100 Women.
Now, it’s time for the next generation of Indonesian leaders to be recognised.
Meet 25-year-old Swietenia Puspa Lestari…
We couldn’t be prouder of the work Swietenia is doing for Indonesia’s oceans and marine life.
The environmental problems we face seem insurmountable.
That’s why today’s young Indonesian leaders need to stand up and be counted, combined with support from the rest of us.
Though with the likes Swietneia and campaigns like the #NoStrawMovement we might just have a chance.
