World Environmental Health Day: Embracing Sustainable Living for a Healthy Planet
On September 29, 2023, the UI GreenMetric hosted Instagram Live Discussions with three exceptional speakers. This year, UI GreenMetric brings up the theme of “World Environmental Health Day: Embracing Sustainable Living for a Healthy Planet.” The first speaker was Maiya Suyunchaliyeva, a Project manager of the Institute of Green Technologies and Sustainable Development at the Kazakh National Agrarian Research University, a social entrepreneur, and director of international relations of the Youth Peace Leadership Organization in Pakistan. The second speaker was Tivany Edwin, a Green Campus Team, and a lecturer in the Environmental Engineering Department of Universitas Andalas. Finally, Shafa Zahira Malik is the President of the Society of Renewable Energy Universitas Indonesia. She is responsible for leading a student organization focused on Renewable Energy development. She has vast knowledge and experience in participation in renewable energy transition in Indonesia, providing technology-economic-policy analysis for energy transition projects. The celebration of World Environmental Health Day is important as it aims to promote environmental consciousness, sustainable lifestyles, and responsible use of resources. During a recent live discussion, we explored ways to transition to a sustainable, low-carbon future. Our discussion revealed that a comprehensive approach and the unwavering dedication of every individual are necessary to achieve this goal. The esteemed panelists shared valuable insights and tips on how we can all work together toward environmental conservation and sustainability, thereby creating a brighter future for ourselves and future generations. During the discussion, Maiya Suyunchaliyeva, Project Manager of the Institute of Green and Sustainable Development at KazNARU, emphasized the pivotal role that universities play in maintaining a healthy and sustainable environment for younger generations. Ms. Maiya proposed the creation of a sustainable university platform that would enable students to engage in sustainable activities while also providing opportunities for experts to impart knowledge on sustainability and renewable energy to students. This approach would allow universities to positively impact the community by promoting sustainable practices and values among future generations. According to Shafa Zahira Malik, President of the Society of Renewable Energy Universitas Indonesia, implementing initiatives, education on renewable energy projects, and collaborating with companies, institutions, or NGOs practicing sustainable methods could significantly impact communities in supporting and promoting sustainable living practices. Such practices include community gardens, waste reduction initiatives, and renewable energy projects. Tiffany Edwin, a lecturer in the Environmental Engineering Department of Universitas Andalas and a member of the Green Campus Team, advocates for critical behavioral changes to promote sustainable living while maintaining quality of life. Her recommendations aim to raise individuals' awareness of sustainability challenges, leading to the adoption of more sustainable practices, healthier choices, and increased energy efficiency. The discussion held a significant emphasis on the fundamental need for a sustainable future, which can only be achieved with every individual's comprehensive strategy and commitment. In this regard, we can all make valuable contributions to this goal, starting from our respective societies, universities, and cities. We must work together toward realizing a sustainable future, and this can only be possible through collective effort and a shared vision for the future.
