Building the Concept of Mutual Cooperation in Indonesian Social Media

Building the Concept of Mutual Cooperation in Indonesian Social Media

KEMENKO PMK – Strengthening the values ​​of mental revolution through social media (medsos) is very important.

According to data from a Microsoft survey titled the Digital Civility Index (DCI), the level of digital civilization in Indonesia is very bad (2021), even the worst in Southeast Asia.

This was conveyed by the Deputy for Mental Revolution, Cultural Advancement, and Sports Achievement at the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture Didik Suhardi during a media dissemination meeting for the National Movement for Mental Revolution (GNRM) with Sabrang Mowo Damar Panuluh, the initiator of the social media application,, Monday (4/04). 7).

“Very concerned. Data states that 47% of digital media is used for hoaxes and fraud, 27% for hate speech, and 13% is used for discrimination.

For that, today we will talk with Mas Sabrang to look for opportunities to take advantage of a platform as a way to increase the value of our media civilization, “explained Didik Suhardi.

It is undeniable that social media is designed mostly for profit, not for extracting values.

The world of information moves quickly and social media makes communication a very broad platform.

“For that we need the right social engineering that is built with the guidance of our community’s local wisdom values.

We have gotong royong and are very in line with the Islamic philosophy of fastabiqul khairat,” explained Sabrang while mentioning that implemented a curation algorithm through mutual cooperation. “Gotong royong in knowledge, funds, and energy,” he added.

As a social engineer, of course the government is present and involves social institutions such as universities, mass organizations, and so on.

Collaboration of mutual funds from business actors is required through CSR, sponsorship, scholarships, and philanthropy. The role of the state is needed to reaffirm the value of mutual cooperation with the development of social investment, namely manpower, funds, and knowledge.

“The strengthening of mutual cooperation in the social structure through the community, in this case on social media, will produce a mental model.

There is a communal responsibility about the importance of harmony, togetherness that comes from socio-cultural patterns that occur over and over again,” explained Sabrang.

It must be admitted, added Sabrang, that the social structure in social media is met by the presence of the distribution of trust from the number of followers, likes, and the dominance of the popularity value.

“Therefore, the mentality of a popularity race model is built, existence is more important than function,” he said while explaining that produces repeated patterns in the form of knowledge exchange, trending, and problem solving.

“Social spaces are not only for chatting, but also for studying.

It is important to implement the value of gotong royong in social media through the use of scientific investment, assistance that builds impact on the community.

And finally a mental model is built to compete to share the benefits and impacts,” he explained again.

This activity was attended by various groups.

Attending the Head of Data Center and Information Technology of BPIP (Pancasila Ideology Development Agency) Jacob, member of BPIP and general chairman of PHDI (Parisada Hindu Dharma Indonesia) General Wisnu Bawa, Representative of Permabudhi (Indonesian Buddhist Association) Bima, member of PHDI Nyoman Widia, Director of Information Empowerment Kominfo, and Representatives of Research, Technology and Higher Education.

While attending online were Chairman II of the GTN GNRM Expert Team Arif Budimanta and the PGRI Board of Trustees Dudung Abdul Qodir.

On that occasion, Didik Suhardi emphasized that the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture will discuss further Synergy with BPIP, Ministry of Education and Culture, Research and Technology, and Kominfo following up the results of today’s meeting.

It is hoped that this collaboration will be able to build the concept of gotong royong in order to increase the digital civility index in the community.

“Hopefully we will avoid the negative mentalities of society in behaving on social media.

Strengthening the values ​​of mental revolution such as work ethic, mutual cooperation, integrity through the media is very important, especially with the potential for a demographic bonus in the future.

We hope that we will avoid disaster demography,” concluded Didik


It must be admitted, until now the mental of being colonized is still entrenched, for some Indonesian people.

In fact, in the eyes of the world, Indonesia is starting to be respected and respected by other countries. Wealth of Natural Resources (SDA) followed by the number of Human Resources (HR) who were born in the Motherland and can speak a lot in the world arena make Indonesia more viewed.

Therefore, the National Movement for Mental Revolution (GNRM) promoted by President Jokowi is very appropriate.

The Indonesian people have to start being ‘literate’ with the potential of their own nation so that they can become a developed and great nation in the future.

This was stated directly by Academician of the Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) Prima Gandi.

According to him, mentally inlander, can only be scraped and even removed with GNRM.

“We are the nation’s children, especially the youth, we must have confidence.

How, by actively learning and understanding the potential that exists within each of us.

Maximize all the potential we have and make us a better person.

Boost our work ethic, collaborate and have integrity.

Slowly, the feeling of inferiority will disappear.

As a result, we will no longer feel inferior to other nations,” he explained.

Gandhi agreed with what President Jokowi said regarding the Indonesian nation being seen by the world.

This is evidenced by various kinds of bilateral cooperation with countries in the world.

This means that Indonesia’s existence in the future has a great opportunity to grow and advance.

However, these lofty ideals must begin with a complete mental revolution.

“We have to be aware, we are a big nation, a nation that has various kinds of potential that other nations don’t even have,” he asserted.

Indonesia is Increasingly Appreciated, Respected and Appreciated

President Joko Widodo said that Indonesia’s position was increasingly valued, respected, and seen by other countries in the international arena.

President Joko Widodo felt this directly when he traveled abroad to three countries from late October to early November.

When delivering his remarks at the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the National Democratic Party which was held at the Ki Hajar Dewantara Auditorium, State Defense Academy Campus, Jakarta, Thursday, November 11, 2021, President Jokowi said that in Rome, Italy, he attended the Conference G20 High Level (Summit) and received the baton of the G20 presidency from the Italian Prime Minister.

After that, President Jokowi attended the COP26 Climate Change Summit in Glasgow, Scotland and finally, the President visited the United Arab Emirates to strengthen Indonesia’s relations with the friendly country.

“There is something I feel that is different when compared to the summit, with previous summits, at that meeting.

There were lots of bilateral requests, lots of requests for bilateral meetings from other countries present at that time.

Then secondly, a lot of them suddenly, both when I was standing and I was sitting, came to me and that was the great countries.

Head of state who came.

What’s this? I feel the difference,” said the President.

From the foreign trip, the President said that what was more important was that Indonesia had the honor and trust to hold the G20 chair or presidency, starting from 1 December 2021 until early November 2022.

Thus, Indonesia will also hold the G20 Summit and a number of other related international meetings.

“For one year, from December 1 to early November 2022, we will hold approximately 150 meetings, both financial affairs, climate affairs, digital economic affairs, all of which will be held in Indonesia.

I also need to say, Indonesia is the first developing country to become the G20 presidency,” he explained.

The President emphasized that a strategic position like this must be utilized as well as possible for the national interest of Indonesia.

Moreover, in the following year Indonesia will also receive the baton of the ASEAN chairmanship, the delivery of which is likely to take place around October-November 2022.

“Indonesia is a big country with a big history and we really want to use this once again to influence world policies in any way,” he added.

However, the Head of State feels sad because Indonesia’s position, which is increasingly valued, respected, and seen by other countries, is sometimes underestimated in his own country. In fact, as a country that holds the chairmanship of the G20 and ASEAN, Indonesian citizens should also feel the honor.

“I also want, all of us also want, our citizens are also respected, respected by citizens of other countries wherever our Indonesian citizens are,” he continued.

Inferior mentality, inlander mentality, and colonized mentality, Jokowi continued, must be eliminated and must not be maintained.

The President reminded that as a great nation, Indonesia has many fragments of the glorious history of the nation’s predecessors and that Indonesia’s independence was not a gift but the result of a long struggle.

“We have to start building self-confidence, a sense of optimism as a leading nation.

Do not let us lose that orientation and that is what is called a change movement, a restoration movement, right there.

The inlander mentality, the colonized mentality, the inferior mentality must not be lost until now, nor should anyone maintain it,” he said.

Boost GNRM Achievements 2020-2024

The government is committed to continuing to improve the achievements of the National Mental Revolution Movement (GNRM) program for 2020-2024.

This follows the results of the evaluation of the 2015-2019 GNRM program achievements which are considered to have met the target.

Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture (Menko PMK) Muhadjir Effendy said there were five program indicators that could show the government’s success in achieving the 2015-2019 GNRM target.

Namely, the achievement indicators of the Serving Indonesia Movement, the Clean Indonesia Movement, the three Orderly Indonesia Movements, the Independent Indonesia Movement, and the United Indonesia Movement.

“The results of the evaluation of the mental revolution program in 2020, we still need to work hard to achieve the targets that we have done together.

But what has been obtained today can be capital for the improvement of the next program,” said Muhadjir while chairing the 2020-2024 GNRM Coordination Meeting which held virtually with a number of ministers, Tuesday (10/11).

He mentioned several achievements from the five indicators of the 2015-2019 GNRM program.

First, the achievements of the Indonesian Serving Movement through changes in the recruitment of State Civil Apparatus based on Computer Based Tests, improvement of community-based basic services, and online-based public services.

Second, the achievements of the Clean Indonesia Movement, one of which is realizing the Healthy Living Community Movement (Germas), as well as the success of peatland management to overcome forest and land fires, which is marked by a 93.6% reduction in hotspots.

Third, the achievement of the Orderly Indonesia Movement, which is around 80% of public complaints, has been successfully resolved by utilizing electronic communication networks. Fourth, the achievements of the Independent Indonesia Movement by providing various easy access to the economy for the community, including the provision of entrepreneurial capital.

Fifth, the achievements of the United Indonesia Movement, namely running a government based on mutual cooperation, increasing religious harmony, handling hoax news, and also collaboration with cultural customs in the region.

“Regardless of the obstacles to implementing GNRM that we did, the Mental Revolution Achievement Index (ICRM) in 2018 was 67.01.

This is what we must and will continue to improve by looking at public perceptions to support the achievement of the five dimensions of GNRM,” said Muhadjir.

He also said that Indonesia has a long-term target in 2045 to become a developed country and become the top 5 countries with the largest GDP in the world.

For this reason, the poverty rate is expected to fall to 0% and the Gini ratio to decrease to 0.34.

In addition, in 2036, Indonesia is also expected to be able to get out of the middle income trap.

“To achieve this target, in the 2020-2024 RPJMN, 7 development agendas are set, in which mental revolution is included.

ICRM in 2024 is targeted to reach 74.3,” said the former Minister of Education and Culture.

Muhadjir ensures that GNRM plays a role in the development of quality and characterful Indonesian people.

This is to answer the challenges of world megatrends in the form of global demography, competition for natural resources, climate change, technological developments, the rise of the middle class, and so on.

So far, the GNRM achievements that have been conveyed by the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture to President Jokowi as of April 2020 are that the structure of the National Task Force has been stipulated by Coordinating Ministerial Decree No. 20 of 2020.

While the formation of Task Forces in ministries/agencies is only 8 out of 86 k/l (9.3%), Task Forces in provinces have been 26 out of 34 provinces (76.5%), and Task Forces in districts/cities have 87 out of 314 districts/cities (27.7%).
