Enabling Indonesian Youth to Contribute to National Digitalisation

The administration is eager to work with youth to raise the calibre of local public services and positively impact society. In keeping with this, Diah Natalisa, the Deputy for Public Services at the PANRB (Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform), has invited young people to participate in its Ideathon competition.

To provide young people with a voice in assisting their local governments in delivering better public services, the Tons-of-Idea: Young People for Excellent Public Service Ideathon competition was created. The event will feature sessions in the following six provinces: Banten, East Java, West Kalimantan, East Nusa Tenggara, South Sulawesi, and North Sumatra.

The competition aims to inspire new methods of public service delivery by young people, who will be better equipped to address issues relating to public service delivery in rural areas. The Ideathon aims to provide innovative, untried solutions to the issues affecting public services in underprivileged communities.

This competition will serve as a forum to promote and facilitate young people’s meaningful involvement in the local government’s efforts to improve the quality of public services through ideas and creativity. Diah expressed hope that the first-ever tournament would motivate young people to have a positive influence when registration initially began.

The Ideathon is divided into seven sub-themes based on 2023 national development goals. Climate change and disaster preparedness, governance reform, women’s empowerment and gender equality, health, education, and culture, as well as social welfare and poverty reduction, infrastructural equity, and digital transformation are a few of these. governance.

Students, professionals/academics, and young government personnel can participate in this challenge. People between the ages of 18 and 35 are eligible to take part in the competition, which strongly emphasises youth engagement. Contributions from our participants in the form of ideas, products, systems, applications, and platforms are all welcome.

KH Ma’ruf Amin, the Vice President (Wapres), has stressed the importance of contributions from all Indonesians, especially those in the diaspora and pursuing higher education abroad. He said this in the context of Japan’s idea of a future society – Society 5.0. A new civilisation completely accepting technological breakthroughs is known as “Society 5.0.” The idea has been touted as a comprehensive plan for enhancing society through technological development.

He believes that Indonesians would continue to actively advance their knowledge to benefit their country, especially those who have the chance to study abroad so that Indonesia can catch up in technical advancements. Indonesian people living abroad must also help in the fruit-producing nation to serve as “ambassadors for the country.”

There are, of course, caveats and cautions that must be in place. The Vice President warned that emerging digital technologies must consider human societal ethics. He urged people to refrain from spreading rumours, slander, and incitement to violence.

The Ministry of Communication and Informatics has been a vocal proponent, inside the government, of raising the bar for government employees’ digital literacy and proficiency. The public servant must fully realise the possibilities of technology to deliver first-rate services to the public.

The General Secretary of the Ministry of Communication and Informatics, Mira Tayyiba, recently emphasised the importance of government employees being aware of their responsibilities as public servants whose professionalism is partly measured by the satisfaction of the public with their services, both in-person and online. Digital transformation is one of the main foci of efforts to overhaul the bureaucracy.

Meanwhile, the government of Indonesia has created the Public Services Portal to aid in the country’s digitalisation efforts. The portal is a central location for accessing government services on the web. The evolution of this site has improved the results of IT security audits and usability studies. The public will soon be able to utilise the website and apps that consolidate many government services into a single sign-in, eliminating the need to remember multiple passwords.
