Cultural Meeting is an event held by SCOPE CIMSA UNEJ, the aim of this event is to understand culture of other countries. It is usually done when an exchange visit us in Jember. However since we are currently facing a pandemic it is impossible for us to do the exchange program. With the advancement of technologies we were able to hold an online event with interviewee from any places possible.

On November 8th, 2020 SCOPE CIMSA UNEJ held an event organized via Zoom Meeting that invited 2 speakers. The first speaker is the chairman of Sobat Budaya, Nicky Ria Azizman and the second speakers is from Greece, Anastasia Chatzistamati, the IFSMA Capacity Building Education Assistant 2018-2019.

For this event we had 3 session, the first one was presentation from Sobat Budaya and Anastasia Chatzistamati. For the second session we had talk show and mainly discussed about differences between Indonesian Culture with Greece. Last but not least we had a QnA Session with the participants, which the participants asked questions actively.

Greece is a multi-cultural country with diverse interest, from this event we knew more about the culture in Greece, which included the language, buildings, history, and traditional dishes. From this meeting, we were able to gain more knowledge about how the Greek culture, how their long history influence their culture, and so on.

Indonesia is the biggest archipelago in the world consisting of over than 17,500 islands, from the large amount and dispersion of the islands come an abundant amount of cultures, with each culture being distinct and unique from the other. Most ethnicities have their own language, history, habits, beliefs and cuisine, hence why most Indonesian tend to introduce themselves with their ethnicity. Even with the diverse cultures, there are some things in common that most Indonesian regardless of their background, they would always do: smiling even in an uncomfortable situation, passing or receiving with your right hand, taking off your shoes when you are entering someone’s house or a religious building to show your politeness. Through this activity we can learn and understand more about the culture of these two countries.
