Agung WicaksonoAgung Wicaksono, MSc, Researcher
PT PETROSIDA GRESIK, Gresik, East Java, Indonesia

Hi young leaders, my name is Agung Wicaksono. I graduated from Master of Science Collage of Agriculture and Life Sciences Seoul National University, Seoul South Korea with some academic and non-academic accomplishments. I’m passionate on environment, education, science and social research, and youth development. From these interests, I always try to connect all my activities which are related to my personal background with my future plans. Being born and raised in Indonesia, I witness how development is overly focused on economic growth. As the consequence, Indonesia has been entering an urban era with the fact of many people settled in cities. The result of this phenomenon is negative impact of urbanization, such as poverty and environmental degradation. That is why I am encouraged to have a concrete role in the Sustainable Urbanization of Indonesia by contributing long-term solutions. My interest in urban environmental studies started when I built a community development program for destitute children in slum areas from 2010 until 2016.

Stories have always fascinated him and he firmly believes that he is the long lost colonial cousin of the caveman who narrated the stories during the Stone Age. His passion for storytelling is hardwired into his DNA and Sandeep’s strength lies in deriving meaning out of complex concepts and telling stories in simple narratives and powerful imagery through creative communication channels. In his prior stint in the corporate environment, he has worked across a gamut of operational areas and has written, produced and directed various campaign and brand films for various brands. As part of the core team, he also lead the ‘150 Year Celebrations’ advertising campaign for a reputed French multinational brand that spun across different geographies and collaborated across diverse cultures. He has a flair for film screenplay writing and has conceived and crafted content for feature films and digital series which are in the pre-production stages while also researching on his documentary titled ‘Negative Cutters’ based on the fading art of manual film editing in the bygone era. Currently, as Head of Campaign for India Operations, Sandeep oversees the Social Media Campaign for a health care initiative sponsored by Hollywood Health and Society and also contributes as a Digital Campaign Advisor to an NGO ‘The Hands Of Hope Foundation’.

Agung WicaksonoAgung Wicaksono, MSc, Researcher
PT PETROSIDA GRESIK, Gresik, East Java, Indonesia

Hi young leaders, my name is Agung Wicaksono. I graduated from Master of Science Collage of Agriculture and Life Sciences Seoul National University, Seoul South Korea with some academic and non-academic accomplishments. I’m passionate on environment, education, science and social research, and youth development. From these interests, I always try to connect all my activities which are related to my personal background with my future plans. Being born and raised in Indonesia, I witness how development is overly focused on economic growth. As the consequence, Indonesia has been entering an urban era with the fact of many people settled in cities. The result of this phenomenon is negative impact of urbanization, such as poverty and environmental degradation. That is why I am encouraged to have a concrete role in the Sustainable Urbanization of Indonesia by contributing long-term solutions. My interest in urban environmental studies started when I built a community development program for destitute children in slum areas from 2010 until 2016.
