1ST WINNER OF ETHNICITY INTOLERANCE ERADICATION CAMPAIGN.

The intolerance towards ethnicities is a problem increasing at a dangerous rate in social media. This is the concern fueling a Campaign Project executed by three Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH) Communication Science – Public Relations students. Their attempt landed them in 1st place in the PRAHASTA (Pertempuran Humas Nusantara) category in Ajisaka 2018 held in UGM Yogyakarta on November 2-3, 2018.

3RD WINNER OF GOPRO COMPETITION IN UAI

Becoming a professional must be trained since today. That is what University of Pelita Harapan (UPH) Communication Science (Ilkom) students implemented, Kristela Margono, Florencia Cindy, and Rhency. They took a part in GoPRO – Go PR Professional competition that was conducted at Al Azhar Indonesia University (UAI) on August 3 and 5, 2018. The students from cohort 2016 won the 3rd place by raising the idea of caring for the survival of marine animals, especially in Ancol.

Regarding the reason of raising the idea about the survival of marine animals, they considered this thing as an important one because they saw that the cleanliness of marine ecosystems contributed to creating an ideal marine life.” Besides UPH, the participants in this competition were Padjajaran University which sent two teams, and both won 1st and 2nd place. Each of them raised the theme of Sumatran Elephant protection and protection against animal exploitation.

1ST WINNER OF ETHNICITY INTOLERANCE ERADICATION CAMPAIGN

The intolerance towards ethnicities is a problem increasing at a dangerous rate in social media. This is the concern fueling a Campaign Project executed by three Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH) Communication Science – Public Relations students, Clarita (2016), David Gunarso (2017), and Elizabeth Lius (2017). Their attempt landed them in 1st place in the PRAHASTA (Pertempuran Humas Nusantara) category in Ajisaka 2018 held in Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) Yogyakarta, on November 2-3, 2018.

“We started the campaign through Instagram, seeing that it’s one of the most prominent social media. We made infographics, facts, and presented visual information about ethnicity intolerance. Then, we designed the main event – we made a competition that urges students, as millennials, to participate, and we named it ‘Terasi – Tebas Rasa Intoleransi’ (Eradicate Intolerance). In this competition, participants are presented with case studies and will be asked to propose a solution to the problem using facilities identical with the millennial era. This is what we proposed. And this is what brings us to victory,” Elizabeth said.

1ST WINNER IN THE IDEATION CATEGORY AT THE 2017 EPICENTRUM COMPETITION

Juan Ferdinand and Firtiza Octalia Eddy won the first place in the ‘Epicentrum 2017’ competition, the largest event held by the Faculty of Communication Sciences from Universitas Padjajaran on November 13-16, 2017. The competition, with the theme “Youth Responsibility for Indonesia”, was participated by 122 teams from various universities such as the Universitas Indonesia, Universitas Kristen Petra, Universitas Diponegoro, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta, etc. Juan and Firtiza are students from Communication study program, with concentration in Advertising.

“We are proud to bring the name of the UPH Communication and give maximum achievements. This is our last chance before graduating. The experience of studying at UPH provides many benefits to prepare us to go into the society, such as the values of hard work, never giving up, and keeping in mind that God is always with us even on the lowest point of our life. Moreover, when we entered the final round, I and my colleague got sick just before the final day. From this experience I learned that it is not where we are placed, but how we want to survive in that place. So, no matter where we are, as long as we have the will to thrive, we can do it. This is the value that has been planted in me,” Juan concluded.
