Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture Muhadjir Effendy expressed the hope that the medals would increasingly make the national mental revolution movement more heartfelt and stimulate residents to become a part of it.
"The Mental Revolution Movement is a public movement initiated and conducted by the existing powers in the civil community. In this case, the government has positioned itself as a stimulator and provocateur to continue the movement in all dimensions of people's lives," he said.
The core of the mental revolution movement is to make a change for the better, he clarified.
The efforts to improve the Indonesian nation's behavior should begin from changing their mentality. " Mentality must change first. In essence, the movement is to change a bad thing into good thing and good thing into a better thing," he said.
