6 May 2023 - Technical Assistance I

ARISE+ Indonesia will be participating in the Europe Day celebrations by taking part in the Ambassador Tumpeng Challenge, which will be hosted by Chef Bara. Thirteen ambassadors and representatives from European Union Member Countries will showcase their skills in decorating tumpeng rice, a dish traditionally served during significant events and ceremonies in Indonesia, symbolising supplication for protection, safety, and pleasure from God.

What makes this year's tumpeng rice special and unique is that it is made using Geographical Indication (GI) certified ingredients, which have been supported by ARISE+ Indonesia. GI is a label that identifies a product's geographical origin and unique qualities, which are typically influenced by the area's climate, soil, and traditional production methods.

While Europe Day is celebrated on May 9th globally, in Indonesia, the public event, titled Alun-Alun Eropa, will take place on Saturday, May 6th, 2023, at Gelora Bung Karno, Senayan, Jakarta. Alun-Alun Eropa, an outdoor festival organised by the European Union Delegation to Indonesia, aims to celebrate the rich and diverse European culture and the people-to-people friendship between Europe and Indonesia.

This one-day public event aims to showcase the vibrant and diverse European culture, cuisine, tourism, and education and is inspired by traditional European markets and fairs.
