DENPASAR: Governor Made Mangku Pastika urged religious leaders to support the government's Clean and Green Bali program to improve the island's environment.
Speaking before dozens of Hindu low-priests on Monday, the governor said the program was a real implementation of the Hindu concept of harmony, Tri Hita Karana, adopted by the community for hundreds of years.
"If we really adopt the concept in our daily lives, I am sure that Bali will always clean, green and beautiful. Such a concept would certainly bring positive vibrations to the island and its population," he said.
Pastika said that the role of traditional villages, rural communities and local religious leaders had been key to the implementation of the program.
Community and religious leaders are expected to urge their followers to help create a clean and green Bali.
