In addition, Madame Ani Yudhoyono will also launch Nusantara White-water Devotion by planting trees and spreading young fishes.
As part of the dedication, the first lady will also hold a dialog with the local elementary school students and to inspect health civic mission activity.
The dedication of the prosperous village is the peak event of the "Women Plant and Cultivate Trees Campaign 2010" which was launched by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the Manggala Wanabakti auditorium in Jakarta on Tuesday, November 23, 2010.
The Women Plant Trees Campaign is a yearly activity which was started four years ago with different themes and formats of activity each year.
In 2010, the program was focused on the activity of planting trees such as Ketapang and mangroves in coastal areas. It is expected that the program will improve the people`s economy and boost their awareness to preserve forests in coastal area.
The Tuesday inauguration also featured an exhibition and conference themed "Protection of Coastal Forests and Improvement of the People`s Prosperity."
Earlier, the People`s Coalition for Fishery Justice has appealed to the government on the need to preserve and improve mangrove forests.
The mangrove preservation is necessary to prevent them from disappearance from the face of the earth because the forests provide ground for fishes, shrimp, and mollusks for spawning and growing.
