Suharyo (Bishop of Jakarta Archdiocese), Mr. Jakob Oetama (the owner of KOMPAS Newspaper), Mr. Purnomo Yusgiantoro (the minister of defense), and other prominent leaders.

A session on media awareness was assisted by Mrs. Dina and Eka from Rumah Cinema (a center for media research and advocacy in Yogyakarta). Then they produced some short TV programs (video-clips, meditation, video spot on peace and ecology, and drama). Then these programs are integrated as one TV program (magazine format) by SAV Puskat. The title of the program (24 minutes) is “Relation with God, Neighbor, and the Nature….On Line….On Line.” It will be used for evangelization in the parishes as well as a TV program on a national TV station, Indosiar, on June 12, 2011, one week after the World Communication Day. The participants are happy with this training, because they got a professional training and an experience of co-production among SIGNIS members. We hope that this training will be fruitful for the progress of evangelization through media in Indonesia.
