One of the Indonesia’s traditional wisdom heritage is Trihitakarana philosophy from Bali that governs a harmonious relationship between human being with God, human being with another human being, and human being with nature; this can be a basis for sustainable development. O one of the practical implementations of Trihitakarana is the Nyepi or Silent Day conducted for 24 hours in Bali during the Saka New Year.


It is estimated that during Nyepi Day, the CO2 emission reduction in Bali is at least 20 thousands tons because motorcycles, cars and airplanes cease to operate.

For humanity to learn from Bali by determining March 21st as Nyepi Day, in which everyone can contribute to green house gas emission reduction by stopping all activities and energy consumption for one day. This is a fair and easy way. We propose that the UN through UNFCCC establish the Nyepi Day gradually beginning in March 2008 and with implementation by March 2010. World Silent Day is a community campaign to help tackle climate change through traditional wisdom.
