One of the most significant agenda within the opening ceremony is Jakarta Declaration. The main purpose of this agenda is to call the entire globe to live together in peace and harmony. The President of the Republic of Indonesia Mr. Joko Widodo will lead the call after delivering speech for the opening ceremony.
The significance of the call is that it is voiced from Indonesia which in fact is the country with the largest Muslim community in the world.

Instead, education should be in the front line to promote peace and harmony.
