The Indonesian Ministry of Communications and Informatics, through the National Digital Literacy Movement (GNLD), Siberkreasi has unveiled a new series promoting the positive use of social media in partnership with thought leaders, experts and celebrities Marshanda, Nicholas Saputra, Cinta Laura, Ashilla Sikado, and Benjamin Adhisurya.

Nearly half of Indonesian’s report suffering from online abuse or fraud. Siberkreasi hopes to reverse this trend with new digital literacy and awareness campaigns. Launched as part of the Ministry’s #MakinCakapDigital campaign, the programs are designed to promote the positive use of social media and encourage Indonesian citizens to do good through social media.

“Social media is often linked to a range of negative outcomes, from mental health issues to scams and frauds. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Our new webinar series and educational programs aim to change the narrative on social media by covering three main areas: mental health, digital literacy among students, and positive social movements,” said Anita Wahid, Vice Chairman of Siberkreasi.
