Maria Cynthia Jaya

Co-Founder

Cynthia found her passion for social equality and sustainability through her involvement in community service at a young age. Using her background in law, she channels her passion to help others by working pro-bono cases. As her love for Indonesia’s rich biodiversity grew, so did her desire to be involved in climate action. This passion became the foundation that founded Project Planet ID.
