Sam Ratulangi University held the ToT Eco-Enzyme series IV program for the Central and Eastern parts of Indonesia which was held on Thursday, April 29, 2021. This ToT program was the fourth event in the Eco Enzyme Series which was held under the auspices of the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking. This implementing team is a collaboration of the National Eco Enzyme Team from 11 Universities in Indonesia. This event presented three speakers including Dr. Ir. Nurzainah Ginting, M.Si from the University of North Sumatra (USU), Siska Alicia Farma, S.Pd., M.Biomed from Padang State University (UNP) and Dr. Veronica A. Kumurur, S.T., M.Si from Sam Ratulangi University. The event was opened with remarks from the Rector of Sam Ratulangi University, Prof. Dr. Ir. Ellen Joan Kumaat, M.Sc., DEA, who at the same time reminded us of the importance of preserving nature, especially Earth Day, which was also celebrated on April 22nd. The event was continued with remarks given by the Head of UI GreenMetric, Prof. Dr. Ir. Riri Fitri Sari, M.M., M.Sc and continued with the takeover of the event guide by the seminar moderator who is the Coordinator of the UI GreenMetric Sam Ratulangi University, Dr. Indri S. Manembu, S.IK., M.Si. The seminar was then continued with the presentation of the material by the first resource person, namely Dr. Ir. Nurzainah Ginting, M.Si who is also the Coordinator of UI GreenMetric, University of North Sumatra. He presented material entitled "Utilization of Eco Enzyme Products in the University of North Sumatra". He talked about the USU campus's efforts to create a campus that cares about the environment, such as a program for making eco enzymes to be distributed to government agencies such as the Medan Animal Husbandry Service which is used as a disinfectant. The presentation of the material was continued by the second resource person, namely Siska Alicia Farma, S.Pd., M.Biomed. He brought material with the title "EcoEnzyme Making Practices" which here explains about food waste that has not been processed optimally, especially in Indonesia. Eco Enzyme can then be a solution to dealing with organic waste which is much more useful than just being made as compost. The last presentation of material was delivered by Dr. Veronica A. Kumurur, S.T., M.Si. He shared about his experience in making Eco Enzyme which has created a new community about Eco Enzyme in North Sulawesi. This community itself has carried out many activities by utilizing organic waste / waste in the city of Manado, even though it was only formed in 2021. The webinar itself got even more exciting with the question and answer session that was held, where the number of participants who attended reached 300 people, the maximum capacity of the number of participants who could participate.

UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi held the ToT Eco-Enzyme series III program for Islamic Universities throughout Indonesia which was held on April 8, 2021. This Eco Enzyme ToT program is the third implemented under the auspices of the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking. This implementing team is a collaboration of the National Eco Enzyme Team from 11 universities in Indonesia, namely: North Sumatra Univ, UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi, Padang State Univ, Brawijaya University, Padjajaran Univ, Bengkulu Univ, Syiah Kuala University, Syarif Hidayatullah UIN Jakarta, UPN Veteran Yogyakarta, State University of Surabaya, Univ Kuningan. The event with the theme "Waste to Bless: Magic Liquid for Green Campus" has been carried out well with 313 participants from 110 institutions both from State and Private Universities, Agricultural Service, LIPI, Elementary Schools, Junior High Schools and Atas, the Livestock Service Office, NGOs, and the General Public. The speakers or speakers at the seminar this time included Dr. Ir. R.R. Rukmowati, M.Arg (UPN Veteran Yogyakarta), Sisca Alicia Farma, M.Bio.Med (Padang State University), Dr. Ir. Nurzainah Ginting, M.Si (University of North Sumatra) and Syukrya Ningsih, M.Si (UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi) Eco-Enzyme is a form of solution to environmental problems in handling organic waste. Eco-Enzyme is the result of fermentation of organic waste such as fresh fruit and vegetables which is no longer used. The composition of this eco-enzyme fermentation consists of molasses, fruit, and water with a ratio of 1: 3: 10 which is fermented for 90-100 days. In accordance with the theme in this ToT, namely Magic Liquid, which has water, that eco-enzyme has many benefits for household needs, agriculture, animal husbandry both on a micro and macro scale. The existence of this activity is of course with the hope that UIN Sulthan Thaha Saifuddin Jambi as the host of the ToT can make trainers to participants where they live and as real action in overcoming problems that occur in the environment.

At this moment in time, experts and billionaires flock to research and explore to measure the level of life on planets other than Earth. Of course we are no stranger to the Proxima B Space Project which is claimed to be a place of life other than Earth which is about 4 light years away. The results of the observations were published in a report entitled Habitable Climate Scenarios for Proxima Centauri B with Dynamic Ocean. On the flip side, Elon Musk's and SpaceX's space missions also amazed the world because their goal is to plan how humans will live on Mars and even form colonies there. And there are many other transient project observation programs. So the question is, what will happen to Planet Earth as known as “Si Kelereng Biru Rumah Kita”? The planet, which is about 4.543 billion years old, has become a foothold and home for living things ranging from humans to microorganisms. Indonesia or often referred to as The Emerald of Equator is one of the countries with the largest population of the younger generation, especially Z Generation and Millennial Generation. Based on the results of the 2020 Population Census, the number of Generation Z reached 75.49 million people or equivalent to 27.94 percent of the total population in Indonesia. This condition indicates that Indonesia is experiencing a Demographic Bonus which is both an opportunity and a challenge. How come? Indonesia is also one of the countries that mainstream the mandate of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but there are still some challenges that need to be resolved, especially in the fields of spatial planning/infrastructure, energy and climate change, water management, waste management, transportation, education/research, etc. As the consequence, the young generation as the front line of nation development must be ready to realize the Indonesia Emas 2045. One of the various efforts that can be done is through constructive dialogue and real multi-stakeholder cooperation between students and stakeholders who have the same vision in the field of sustainability. As far as I’m concerned, NSLSM is here to create a program that embraces universities, especially student organizations in order to accelerate the transformation of universities that uphold the values ​​of sustainability with UI GreenMetric as one of the flagship programs of Universitas Indonesia that ranks universities around the world. As a student from the Eastern Indonesia Region and representing the SDGs Center of Universitas Hasanuddin, I am genuine enthusiastic, proud, and grateful for this extraordinary opportunity so that I have been able to meet the figures behind the success of UI Green Metric, UIN Raden Intan Lampung, and 30 student leader speakers from Sabang to Merauke whose represent their respective universities. The annual activity entitled The 1st National Student Leaders on Sustainability Meeting (NSLSM) 2021 which was held on 27 – 29 October at the Green Campus of UIN Raden Intan Lampung gave me the prior knowledges and experiences related to sustainability issues which is also in line with global agreement contained in the SDGs. On the first day, the keynote speech from Prof. Dr. Ir. Riri Fitri Sari, M.Sc., M.M as the Chair of the UI GreenMetric World University Rankings provides powerful insights about the essence of sustainable development in collaboration with the contributions of young people. Through her gorgeous and solemn poem entitled “Feri Merak Bakauheni” contains a message and great hope for youth to work together as a milestone for change in the present and in the future. “On the mainland of Sumatra, dozens of youths gathered. A continuing oath will be pronounced. For the sake of unity and strength to face the challenges of the times. Hey young generations, promise to be a winner. Nothing is impossible." These are the key and useful messages conveyed by Mrs. Riri as a reminder for young people not to stop working and fighting for their dreams to create a better world. “Earth is no substitute. You have to do things in parallel because everything is possible.” Biidznillah, in 2045, in accordance with the mandate of Prof. Riri, I want to meet Prof. Riri to share my best contribution in the field of sustainability as a follow-up initiative of NSLSM. I will do everything in my power. The second day was a very memorable moment. This was motivated by a Focus Group Discussion session with 30 Student Leader Speakers and participants from various regions in Indonesia through Zoom Meetings and the UIN Raden Intan Lampung YouTube channel which discussed issues in the fields of arrangement and infrastructure, energy and climate change, water management, waste management, transportation, education and research. Video shows from each student as a university representative are packed with interesting, informative, educative, and inspiring content. The discussion forums have produced various solutions to problems in the field of sustainability in the context of higher education up to now. Dialogue with millennials to analyze and provide the best recommendations is an invaluable transfer of knowledge throughout my academic exploration. There are several realizations of the green campus program that became a reference and motivated me as an Ambassador for the SDGs Campus of Universitas Hasanuddin so that in the future the framework can be made and implemented massively and inclusively, including: Assembling and using electric motors from the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November which aims to create adaptive- the behavior of the academic community and the surrounding community to start switching to the use of low-emission and carbon vehicles, waste management innovation through the Rumah Inovasi Daur Ulang (RINDU) program to collect and process all waste at Universitas Gadjah Mada which is integrated with research, community services, education, and application of rainwater runoff management through the construction of 8 reservoirs (embung) and 8,000 points of biopore infiltration holes at UIN Raden Intan Lampung. These nnovations should be implemented by every campus in Indonesia in order to create a campus environment that upholds the concept of SIS (Smart, Integrated, and Sustainable). On the third day, the agenda of learning while traveling in Ketapang Harbor and Pahawang Island provided an opportunity for my friends and I to take real action as Environmental Enthusiasts which was implemented in mangrove planting activities as well as cleaning beaches from plastic waste. As we know, plastic waste is the biggest enemy of the environment that needs to be mitigated from now on. The waste problem is not over yet as well as other aspects so that it requires the contribution of multistakeholders to accelerate the achievement of sustainability in the campus environment in accordance with the 17th point of the SDGs, namely Partnerships for the Goals. The 1st National Student Leader on Sustainability Meeting (NSLSM) 2021 activity is an extraordinary momentum between UI GreenMetric, UIN Raden Intan Lampung, 30 best students from each province in Indonesia to create an integrated and ideal arrangement and infrastructure, accelerate energy transition, proactively utilizing new and renewable energy, mitigating and preventing the multiplier effect of climate change, encouraging an environmentally sound water management system, accelerating integrated waste management and utilization, maximizing the application of green and smart transportation, optimizing the advantages of educational aspects and strengthening scientific awareness through sustainable research. NSLSM is a step to transform our sustainability campus, both now and into the future. Youth at the forefront of sustainability for the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.   by Samintang, Universitas Hasanuddin

  “Green your Campus, Green your live!”   An implied jargon from the 2021 National Student Leaders on Sustainability Meeting (NSLSM) event located at UIN Raden Intan Lampung Campus. Maybe we've often heard about green campuses, but have we properly interpreted what green means? It's not just a lot of trees and greenery knick-knacks scattered in the campus area. A green campus means every human being in it including me, you, lecturers, employees and the community around the campus environment who work together to preserve this nature.   Not only ranking but also moving the campus community to be aware of every activity that has an impact on nature   More than 900 campuses in the world participate in the UI Greenmetric ranking. A ranking that moves all campuses to take care of each other so that they can be valued well.   The old adage says "what we sow, we will reap". Likewise with nature, what we do in our daily life will also have an impact on the condition of natural sustainability. Especially in the campus environment where we carry out various activities. Efforts to protect the environment can start from ourselves by not littering and according to its type, not using excessive plastic and replacing it with shopping bags, and not using fossil fuel private vehicles and replacing it with cycling or walking. These things may not be too hard to apply in our campus environment, but have they implemented them? Let's start from within ourselves.   The preservation of this nature needs togetherness   Togetherness to protect the environment does not only end with one's own actions. We need to work with various parties to preserve it. The things we get in our environment are certainly different from other environments. A group discussion is needed to explain what are the solutions and implementations carried out by each campus environment.   In the 2021 NSLSM event we were given one hour to conduct a Forum Group Discussion (FGD). I happened to represent my campus with the theme Energy and Climate Change. I explained how my campus reduces greenhouse gas emissions so that the earth's temperature in climate change can be reduced. There are so many lessons from other campuses that I have learned to apply in my campus on a small scale such as writing motivational words in every corner of the campus, to large scale such as implementing Zero Energy Building (ZEB).     Love the environment with happiness   There is no need to be forced or feel alone to act pro-environmentally. Even nature itself never requires you to take care of it. We should be the ones who realize that we are only riding on this earth to be our home. Taking care of the earth is not an order that we can choose whether we want to or not, protecting the earth is our collective obligation as its inhabitants.   This nature is already rich in the diversity of its biota on land and sea. Keeping it does not mean we are hostile to those who don't care about it. They just haven't realized how important this environment is. Inspiring and inviting them is a solution that can move them to love our environment together. One way to love this environment is to enjoy it. Enjoy the growth of trees from seedlings to large, enjoy the beauty of the colorful underwater habitats, enjoy the cleanliness created from garbage collection, and so on. Those are all the activities that I did in this 2021 NSLSM event by planting mangroves, snorkeling, and cleaning up the coastal environment.   I feel very happy and proud to have been a part of NSLSM 2021. Hopefully we can meet in the following years with new stories from every action we take in our respective communities.   “You and I may differ in reasoning. However, preserving the natural environment in which we live is our collective obligation.” – Achmad Adam Azzuri     by Achmad Adam Azzuri, Telkom University

The 1st National Student Leaders on Sustainability Meeting 2021 is the inaugural agenda of UI Green Metrics at the student level related to sustainability issues involving 30 Student Delegations from Sabang-Merauke who have the capacity and integrity. This activity opens up space for students to discuss and share experiences in an effort to foster the leadership character and integrity of Indonesian students towards sustainable environmental issues. This activity opens opportunities for students to understand and realize the importance of preserving the environment, especially regarding green campuses and real actions to create an environmentally friendly campus. As a student, he is expected to be an agent of change and an ambassador for the promotion of various forms of environmental action at their respective universities.   This activity was organized by UIN Raden Intan Lampung with the theme “Greening Your Campus! Greening Your Life". This activity was held on 27-29 October 2021. Various activities were carried out including Opening Ceremony, Seminar, Focus Group Discussion, Lampung Declaration (Indonesian Student Oath to Save Mother Earth), Workshop: Designing a Green Campus as an Educational Tourism Destination, Campus Tour, Mangrove planting action and Beach Clean Up on Pahawang Island, Inauguration, Closing Ceremony.   On the first day of the opening ceremony, which began with the screening of the Video Green Campus UIN Raden Intan Lampung and remarks delivered by Prof. Wan Jamaluddin Z., Ph.D. (Vice Chancellor III UIN RIL), Speech from the Mayor of Bandar Lampung, Mrs. Hj. Eva Dwiana, SE, M.Si, remarks by Prof. Dr. H. Moh. Mukri, M.Ag. (Mr. Chancellor of UIN RIL) and the last one was a speech by Prof. Dr. Ir. Riri Fitri sari., M.Sc., MM (Chairman of UI Green Metric).   The portrait of Indonesia's young generation has a strategic position as the inheritor of the nation's future. During the Opening Ceremony, I became more aware of my role as the young generation of Indonesia to always maintain harmony, harmony and sustainability with nature. Students as future leaders of the nation and the campus is a center of excellence that has a strategic role in pioneering and promoting a sustainable environment.   We realize together that the UI Green Metric is not just a ranking but our joint efforts to maintain the sustainability of a better earth. The spirit of loving the environment must not be extinguished in our young souls, because loving the environment is a religious commandment. Never stop to carve a track record of goodness on this earth. Let's together enrich ourselves with knowledge, experience and relationships so that we have more power to keep the motherland sustainable, as said Prof. Riri in her speech : Keep on learning and you can do better.   The second day of NSLSM activities took place more and more exciting and fun. In addition to listening and listening to the presentation of the material presented by Prof. Junaedi regarding our UI green Metric World University Rankings was also presented with material on community service activities in the field of environmental education to remote areas in Indonesia by the Indonesian Youth Direction.   During the question and answer session, I had the opportunity to ask Prof. Junaedi related how Akita can shape the mindset of students who are still ignorant about the environment? he replied that there is a need for regulations to bind habits and culture of loving the environment because these habits need to be developed and the process takes time, besides that it can also be done by making social campaigns with posters, video simulations that can make people aware of the importance of loving the environment and the most important thing is We are role models in protecting the environment.   The next session on the second day was a Focus Group Discussion which was divided into 6 FGD groups, each of which discussed topics in the fields of Arrangement and Infrastructure, Energy and Climate Change, Water Management, Waste Management, Transportation, Education and Research. The four of me attended an FGD session with the topic of energy and climate change. This activity opens space for students to discuss and share experiences in an effort to create an energy efficient campus, use of new and renewable energy in the campus environment, energy efficiency, policies to carry tumblers and the provision of free drinking water facilities as an effort to reduce the consumption of plastic bottle waste in the campus environment.   The last series on the second day of NSLSM activities was closed with the Lampung Declaration (Indonesian Student Oath to Save the Motherland). At the same time echoing the reading of this oath, my young soul vibrates even more with a passion that is so tempestuous to continue to be committed to loving and keeping the environment beautiful. After the Lampung Declaration, we toured the UIN RIL campus which is very green and beautiful which has 8 reservoirs, thousands of biopore holes, processing waste into biomass, briquettes, composting, providing free drinking water and getting students used to bringing drinking water tumblers and using bicycles to reduce emissions. carbon. Seeing the hydroponic garden and ending by planting trees together on the UIN RIL campus.   The third day of NSLSM activities was held on Pahawang Island. On the third day we carried out mangrove planting and also a Beach Clean Up which was carried out in groups of 5-6 people. Within 10 minutes my group managed to collect two large bags of plastic waste. Ironically, Indonesia is the second largest producer of plastic waste, of course, this is our collective homework to overcome this and become more aware of how beautiful Indonesia's nature is, which we must be grateful for with an attitude of loving the environment and concrete actions to maintain its sustainability.   The Closing Ceremony on the third day was held quite lively and emotional because they had to part with other friends. However, there is good news that the second NSLSM will be held at Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa University, Banten in 2022. All my friends, we as the young generation of Indonesia must not lose their enthusiasm, the youth must complete their youth by making a good contribution to the country. Indonesia is not perfect, we still have a lot of homework to do together. Let's take care and keep the motherland so that it remains beautiful. And it's hard for me to give an answer, except that whatever happens I don't want to get tired of loving this country, my heart wants to keep singing "Indonesia tanah air beta, Pusaka abadi nan jaya"     By Herlina Pebriani, Universitas Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa
