Empowering Indonesian Vocational Institution in Climate Change Infrastructure
During a three-day workshop held from March 26th to March 28th, 2024, UI GreenMetric, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology of Indonesia, conducted a significant event aimed at empowering vocational institutions in their pivotal role in climate change adaptation through the implementation of UI GreenMetric Indicators. This workshop served as a platform to disseminate essential information, strategies, and best practices. At the heart of this workshop was the Ministry's proposal urging all public vocational institutions across Indonesia to actively engage in the UI GreenMetric Rankings. Through this initiative, the Ministry aims to recognize and reward those institutions that excel in environmental sustainability efforts. To incentivize participation, the Ministry plans to introduce a donation scheme for selected institutions that demonstrate exceptional performance. These chosen institutions will receive sponsorship from the Ministry to bolster their infrastructure procurement and development endeavors for the fiscal year 2024. This collaborative effort not only signifies a commitment to fostering sustainability within vocational institutions but also underscores the government's dedication to supporting and nurturing environmentally conscious practices in the education sector. By encouraging participation in UI GreenMetric Rankings, the Ministry aims to cultivate a culture of environmental awareness and responsibility among vocational institutions, thereby contributing to broader national and global efforts to mitigate climate change. In addition to the Ministry's initiatives, UI GreenMetric played a crucial role in providing valuable insights during the workshop. Through discussions on UI GreenMetric indicators, participants gained a deeper understanding of the metrics used to evaluate environmental sustainability. Moreover, they learned about the myriad benefits of participating in the rankings and received guidance on effectively completing the questionnaire. This workshop marks a significant milestone in advancing sustainability initiatives within vocational institutions across Indonesia. Through collaboration, education, and proactive engagement, stakeholders are poised to make meaningful strides towards a more environmentally sustainable future. Written by: Yovita Y. Yamin
