Lawik sati rantau batuah (ocean has fortune, land has sacredness) is a proverb that reflects how tribal communities in Minangkabau perceive nature. It has cultural and religious meaning that unites a paradigm of life. Two contradictory mainstreams are the transcendental (representing Islamic value) and the naturalistic (representing cultural value lives in harmony and balance). This mutual accommodation have completed each other and produce certain Islamic practices. They also enrich the Islamic pluralism that admits various interpretations and understandings.

My bachelor degree is social of Islam that concerns in cross-culture communication study. My master is integrated natural resources management that focuses on socio-Theo-ecological issues. I try to tailor it as an alternative approach of solving nature catastrophe. The idea breaks down to an organization that named GORESS. The world of intellectualism and activism becomes area that competitions between them are not avoided. To create harmonization, ideally, we try to communicate the interest of stakeholder that appears on human and nature relationship. How do we do it? We have to create a space of communication where is information to understand are balance. It also should be open access and well distribution.
