Program Jalur Rempah mengemban misi meningkatkan kesadaran masyarakat di daerah dan dunia internasional tentang sejarah dan peran Indonesia di masa lalu serta potensi peran Indonesia di masa depan. Dukungan dari negara-negara sahabat di perlintasan jalur rempah dan dunia internasional secara luas akan mempermudah pengajuan dan pengakuan Jalur Rempah sebagai Warisan Dunia.

Sebagai salah satu upaya untuk melaksanakan misi budaya dan menanamkan pengetahuan mengenai rempah dan jalur rempah kepada generasi muda, maka Yayasan Negeri Rempah bekerja sama dengan Maritim Muda Nusantara, akan menyelenggarakan kegiatan Youth-International Forum on Spice Route 2021 yang dirancang secara khusus melalui kegiatan yang akrab di kalangan pemuda untuk memenuhi ketertarikan mereka dalam membahas isu-isu internasional.

Youth-IFSR 2021 ini akan berformat simulasi sidang Model United Nations yang membidik pelajar dan mahasiswa.

The Spice Route is currently widely discussed in Indonesia and the world as a natural and cultural heritage that has long trail in shaping world civilization. It is becoming an important milestone for Indonesia, as it connects Indonesia with other nations.

Spice Route is not separated from maritime affair. Since centuries ago, the seas have become links between nations that have roles in spice community, which has also created social, cultural, and religious, and technological phenomena.

Inline with Indonesia's effort to propose the Spice Route as World Heritage, it is important to disseminate knowledge and insight regarding this matter, including with the younger generation to achieve an understanding that for a long time, Indonesia had been connected with various cultures that ultimately shaped our diversity today. The awareness of multiculturalism is important in fostering good relation between nations and maintaining world peace.

Indonesian governments effort to propose the Spice Route as World Heritage is a step that must be supported from all level of society. This also remind us of the understanding of Indonesia as maritime continent because the sea will always be connected to Spice Route.

Bram Kushardjanto (Yayasan Negeri Rempah) said that Y-IFSR is made for young people to participate, promote best ideas, and respond the various issues related to Spice Route on the global scale, especially from the countries that have historical connections along Spice Route.

Y-IFSR is an initiative of Negeri Rempah Foundation in collaboration with Indonesian Maritime Youths.

According to Restu Gunawan (Director of Culture Development and Utilization, Ministry of Education and Culture), the continuation to do activites actively related to Spice Route is inline with the government's actions. Spice Route should become as a campaign platform that is supported by all parties, including government, community, and private sectors.

The global spice trade in Asia through Indian Ocean has left long marks on civilization. This maritime route has made significant contributions as a mean of cultural exchange and intercultural understanding that brings together various ideas, concepts, knowledge, and experiences between people across Indonesia. For Indonesia, the Spice Route also becomes global meeting point because of its strategic geological and geoeconomy position.

Several government actions are made to gather youth participations, including online seminars or workshops, competitions, and festivals.

Spice Route can be viewed from lots of perspectives. Indonesians can take the opportunity to link Spice Route to country development, from cultural to tourism subject. Otherwise, it will be just stopped in academical purposes.

Maulana Ibrahim, Ph.D. (Negeri Rempah Foundation / Khairun University, Ternate) leaded the Public Talks 1: Climate Change, Human Adaptation, and Resilience.

Fefi Eka Wardiani (Climate Reality Project) said that there is no contribution that is too small. Everything, with little or big portion, is important to our environment. Balance is also needed to be achieved between the microorganisms, plants, animals, and human, so it becomes sustainable resources.

Indonesia needs to take steps to protect its biodiversity, since there are some plants that needed special conditions to live. Genetic modifications can be done, but it is better to save the natural first. There are also more fire in hotter areas,which can effect plants and animals as primary source of food.

Indonesian spices are one of the commodities in the plantation sub-sector, offering a great opportunity to be marketed globally. The world demand for spice commodities tended to increase every year. Indonesia has lots of endemic plants, which are special because they are found in only one location, and nowhere else. In the other side, invasive species means non-native to the ecosystem under consideration, likely to cause economic, environmental harm, or harm to human health, which needs to be avoided.

The Spice Route becomes an important issues in UNESCO, since it is a big umbrella to talk about diversities and maritime heritage. Some of them are still under-studied, most of the students are European, so they use European point of views.

Spice Route is about collectivity and how people exchange ideas and develop shared cultural heritage. This historical route can be used as a power to make interconnection between countries. As examples of cultural routes, Maritime Silk Roads, Project Mausam, Al-Andalousi and Manila Acapulco Galleon Trade are being studied too besides Spice Route for peace and dialogues.

Nation can make high-impact networking projects. In tourism, it can be achieved by doing collective branding and promotion of historical places. This can be done with a nation or with several nations (multinational) with one cultural heritage as a part of shared (collective) heritage.

In the end, Moe Chiba (UNEscO Jakarta Office) suggests young people to think about how Spice Route can be used as a support to tackle pollution and poverty issues, ot to promote and develop local cultural industries. Spice Route shouldn't be just studied on history.

Blue economy brings good benefits to economic growth, also to coastal and environmental sector. By applying maritime security, sea commodities will be safe. Hope we see more implementation of blue economy and maritime security in national and global level in the future.

Dhaneswara AI Amien (Junior Expert in Maritime Management Indonesian Maritime Youths) leaded the Public Talks 2: Blue Economy and SDGs and Public Talks 3: Maritime Security.

Blue economy is an approach to a sustainable managament of marine and coastal resources for economic growth. The factors are community involvement, efficiency, minimizing waste, and multiple value edit.

When we talk about blue economy, there are some topics, such as iclusivity, using renewable energy, tax against illegal fishing, tactleing with water pollution, protects coastal community from impacts of climate change, poverty and hunger issues, marine life and ocean conservation, and the environmental aspects. In these days, blue economy becomes a form of commitment.

Indonesia struggles with marine plastics, overfishing, fishing using chemicals, and climate change impacts. Blue economy 4.0 is being developed in industry 4.0 era. The sustainable ocean resources can be achieved by efficient technology usage, such as intelligence programs incorporated with IoT, cloud, and big data. This kind of technology has been applied to food and beverage, textile and apparel, automotive, chemical, and electronics sector.

"As the solution of maritime companies to implement blue economy principles, Indonesian Maritime Youth has developed BECONNEX development, which becomes a toolkit for supporting achievement of Sustainable Development Goals," said Kaisar Akhir, S.I.K., M.Sc. (Founder & Chairman, Indonesian Maritime Youth).

With blue economy approach, it maintains healthy coastal marine ecosystem that is also generates economic growth, built by industries and government in holistic way. "This is made due to the ecosystem service that is hard to value, because the benefits are often distributed and diffused," Thomas Bell (Science and Communications Officer, PEMSEA) said.

The ecosystem services that seas provide include food, weather regulation and protection from natural hazard, carbon sequestration, energy, shoreline stabilization and erosion control, regulating and processing nutrients and waste, formation of sand, soil, and other sediments, pharmaceutical and biochemical products, trade through shipping and ports, also tourism, recreation, and spiritual value.

South East Asia, mostly Indonesia, is a global hotspot for marine activities. Therefore, it is important to balance the development and conservation. By using eco-tourism approach, the benefits that is provided from nature won't be damaged in ease.

Sea is important as a distribution channel for commodities, so they can be transferred into another place. Indonesian Maritime Security Agency ensures the safety of the seafarers, while also guarding and securing natural resources.

Managing and securing our sea for the present and future is the tough challenge, since Indonesia consists of 17.000 islands and surrounded by water.

Laksamana Pertama Bakamla Retiono Kunto, H, S.E. (Direktur Kerja Sama Bakamla RI) suggests some advices to promote Spice Route. Indonesians can develop clear and proper evidence that is used in the past by ancestors. Bakamla's participation is checking the safety of the route and sailships that will be used again for public or tourism interest.

Senin, 20 September 2021

10.00- 10.30 WIB 


Pembicara Kunci:

  1. Hassan Wirajuda Ph.D (Ketua Dewan Pembina Yayasan Negeri Rempah) 
  2. HE. Djauhari Oratmangun (Duta Besar Republik Indonesia untuk Tiongkok dan Mongolia) 


Indonesia dengan kondisi geografisnya telah sejak lama menjadi tempat pertemuan peradaban. Kemajuan di bidang pemetaan dan navigasi semakin mendorong pelayaran dari berbagai peradaban, termasuk ke Indonesia. Namun kehadiran kolonialisme mengubah pelayaran dan Indonesia sebagai tempat pertemuan dengan monopolinya. Padahal Indonesia menjadi tempat pertemuan tidak hanya untuk perdagangan, tetapi juga pertukaran budaya. Indonesia mengenal nilai musyawarah mufakat sebagai kesepakatan antar berbagai keragaman yang ada. 

Hassan Wirajuda mengungkapkan nilai ini membuat Indonesia lebih sensitif: sensitif dengan hubungan antar budaya, sensitif dengan perasaan yang lain, dan memahami sudut pandang yang lain. Indonesia mengenal istilah Tepa Selira sebagai bentuk toleransi, terutama ketika berhadapan dengan berbagai kebudayaan. Ini menjadi modal penting bagi Indonesia sebagai contoh untuk bangsa-bangsa lain. Misalnya umat Islam yang diidentikkan dengan terorisme, di Indonesia telah menyesuaikan dengan nilai-nilai dialog antar budaya dan agama. 

Kejayaan Indonesia ini juga dibahas oleh Djauhari Oratmangun bahwa perdagangan cengkih dari Maluku yang didistribusikan ke Sulawesi, Malaka, dan Palembang untuk diperdagangkan ke belahan dunia lainnya. Salah satu catatannya adalah catatan di masa Dinasti Song (960-1279) dari Tiongkok yang mencatat kekuasaan Sriwijaya menguasai perdagangan di bagian Barat Tiongkok, namun cengkih belum menjadi komoditas yang menonjol. Di masa Dinasti Yuan (1271-1368) dan Ming (1368-1644) barulah cengkih menonjol di Tiongkok, terutama yang berasal dari Sriwijaya dan Jawa, untuk medis. Begitu juga pala dari Kepulauan Banda. Dalam pengobatan tradisional Tiongkok sekarang, rempah masih menempati posisi penting. Tiongkok menjadi negara pengimpor rendah pertama di dunia. Sekarang Indonesia menjadi negara importir rempah kedua ke Tiongkok.

Panduan Pelaksanaan


“Redeveloping Interconnectivity : Towards ‘Spice Route' as the World Heritage"

Latar Belakang

Tingginya permintaan rempah sejak dahulu memicu jalur rempah yang kini menjangkau seluruh dunia. Jalur rempah adalah nama yang diberikan untuk jaringan rute laut yang menghubungkan negara bagian timur dengan barat. Jalur ini membentang dari pantai barat Jepang, Kepulauan di Indonesia, melewati India, dataran timur tengah, hingga Eropa. Perdagangan yang terjadi pada jalur ini meliputi berbagai macam komoditas seperti sutra, rempah, dan lainnya. Bahkan salah satu kerajaan yang disebut kerajaan nasional Indonesia pertama yaitu Kerajaan Sriwijaya menjadi Jaya karena adanya perdagangan ini.

Kini Jalur Rempah masih menjadi salah satu jalur yang penting dalam perdagangan internasional. Namun pengetahuan jalur rempah di kalangan pemuda khususnya pelajar di Indonesia sangatlah minim. Padahal, Jalur rempah sangat erat kaitannya dengan sejarah dan budaya Indonesia. bahkan Jalur rempah digadang-gadang sebagai warisan dunia. Upaya penyebaran pengetahuan di kalangan pelajar dapat dilakukan melalui media sosial. Langkah ini cukup efektif mengingat hampir semua pelajar memiliki media sosial sehingga dapat menyiarkan pengetahuan akan jalur rempah sesuai dengan minat generasi muda saat ini.

Oleh karena itu, dalam rangka memeriahkan acara the 1st Youth International Forum on Spice Route (Y-IFSR) 2021 pada tanggal 5-7 April 2021, Yayasan Negeri Rempah dan Maritim Muda Nusantara mengadakan Video Competition untuk pelajar SMP/MTs/sederajat dengan tema “Redeveloping Interconnectivity: Towards 'Spice Route' as the World Heritage" (Membangun Kembali Interkoneksi: Menuju ‘Jalur Rempah’ sebagai Warisan Dunia) yang menggunakan media aplikasi TikTok dan Instagram.
