Sejak 2019 -2020, pengukuran kualitas air laut dengan menggunakan UI Bluemetric telah dilakukan di tiga lokasi yang berbeda, yaitu Pantai Carita, Pandeglang, Banten; Pantai Ancol, Jakarta Utara, DKI Jakarta dan; Pantai Bahagia, Bekasi, Jawa Barat. Pengukuran untuk kriteria kualitas air laut dilakukan dengan pengujian sampel di laboratorium yang hasilnya dikonversi menjadi nilai sederhana dengan metode UI BlueMetric. 3 kriteria lainnya, yaitu biodiversitas, sampah dan aktivitas dilakukan dengan penilaian hasil pengamatan dan pengisian kuesioner sesuai pengamatan dan hasil wawancara. Kegiatan dan diskusi tim UI BlueMetric di Bulan Desember 2020 dan Mei 2021 tentang kondisi yang dialami para nelayan di Desa Pantai Bahagia dalam rangka kegiatan Pengabdian Masyarakat di kecamatan Muara Gembong Bekasi yang merupakan muara dari sungai Citarum, juga menghasilkan hasil pengukuran dan catatan kondisi pesisir pantai. Muara sungai Citarum ini, perlu mendapat perhatian berbagai pihak, sebagai peringatan tentang terjadinya perubahan iklim. Kondisi 5 tahun terakhir cukup memprihatinkan mengingat makin dalamnya abrasi kawasan pantai, berkurangnya populasi biodiversitas seperti Lutung Jawa dan burung Kuntul yang hidup didaerah rawa muara dan berkurangnya populasi hutan mangrove. Kualitas air laut di Pantai Bahagia Muara Gembong memiliki nilai 2925 atau 70% dari nilai maksimum UI BlueMettic. Nilai ini termasuk yang terendah dibanding kualitas pesisir di Pantai Carita Banten atau pantai ancol di utara Jakarta. Hal ini perlu mendapat perhatian agar kesadaran masyarakat dan implementasi teknologi dan pengolahan sampah dari hulu ke hilir dapat dilakukan untuk mewujudkan laut kembali biru bersih. Hasil temuan ini juga telah dipresentasikan pada 25 Maret 2021 oleh Tim UI BlueMetric yang diketuai Prof Riri Fitri Sari dari FTUI, yang mempresentasikan hasil evaluasi UI BlueMetric pada Virtual Meeting antara Tim Universitas Indonesia and DTU Denmark mengenai Potensi Kerjasama Riset di Bidang Maritim. Pertemuan ini dihadiri oleh perwakilan dari DTU dan Kedutaan Besar Republik Indonesia (KBRI) untuk Denmark.

The world of higher education is changing in profound ways and not only in the wake of the COVID-19-related health crisis that is accelerating the digital transition of Higher Education. It is also faced with the challenge of responding to the urgency of climate change and more broadly to the need for learners to develop new and highly specific skills to move towards reaching the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. As such, this silent revolution is underway in higher education institutions worldwide. These fundamental trends are changing not only what should be taught, but also how best to teach it. From the wide range of changes such as active learning, inclusive pedagogies, online and hybrid courses, and green skills, institutions are building on their core strengths while challenging long-held assumptions about how teaching and learning take place. We believe it is important to reflect and exchange on the experiences and challenges that we all face in the volatile international context of Higher Education. This goal of this symposium is to identify ways of ensuring that our students receive the highest possible quality learning experiences. Experts from industry and academia from all over the world will share their experiences and discuss the latest innovations in disruptive learning pathways for fostering success in education. The symposium provides the perfect platform for discussing possible educational challenges and ways to overcome them. We would like to invite you to use this opportunity to share your current experience - and to learn from elsewhere - on how to better serve all generations of students with the latest trends (and controversies) in learning pathways. To do this, we are focusing on the themes of: 1. Smart & Green Campuses 2. Digital technologies & Artificial Intelligence 3. Comodal / Hyflex Teaching and the shift to video-based teaching 4. Change Management in Higher Education INSEEC U, as the national coordinator of the UI GreenMetric international ranking of higher education institutions most committed to Sustainable Development, is co-organizing this international symposium with the University of Indonesia (as the creator of this global ranking) with the third edition of the ‘National Workshop on UI GreenMetrics in France’. Special thanks go to Professor Riri Fitri Sari, President of the UI GreenMetric, as co-partner of this event and for his commitment to Sustainable Development, especially with regard to the environmental dimension, in universities around the world and especially in France.

KOMPAS.com - Kerja sama antara Pemerintah Norwegia dan Indonesia di bidang lingkungan baru-baru ini dinilai berhasil. Kerja sama tersebut merupakan program REDD+ (Reduction of Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation). Oleh karena keberhasilannya itu, Pemerintah Norwegia akan membayar hasil kerja penurunan emisi karbon dioksida yang berhasil dilakukan Indonesia. Dilansir Kompas.com, Senin (6/7/2020), jumlah penurunan emisi yang berhasil dicapai Indonesia pada 2016-2017 adalah 11,2 juta ton CO2eq. Sementara harga pasar karbon dunia saat ini sebesar 5 dollar AS (setara Rp 72.617) per ton. Dengan demikian, nilai yang akan dibayarkan kepada pemerintah Indonesia sebesar 56 juta dollar AS atau setara dengan Rp 813,3 miliar. Benarkah emisi karbon di Indonesia turun? Chairman UI GreenMetric Prof Riri Fitri Sari mengungkapkan dirinya sempat ragu saat mendengar program REDD+ akan diluncurkan pada awal 2010 silam. Dirinya khawatir semangat pemerintah dalam "jual-beli" emisi karbon hanya di awal saja. Akan tetapi mengetahui ada penurunan emisi di 2016-2017 pihaknya merasa ikut senang. "Kalau akhirnya memang akan dibayarkan, kita cukup surprise bahwa ini bukan hanya janji semata. Berarti Norwegia benar-benar walk the talk dengan program yang diberkelanjutan selama 10 tahun terakhir," ujarnya pada Kompas.com, baru-baru ini. Mempertahankan hutan Kebakaran hutan Cagar Alam Papandayan, Minggu (6/10/2019) (KOMPAS.COM/ARI MAULANA KARANG) Riri menjelaskan, program itu berkaitan dengan hubungan diplomatik antara kedua negara yang baik. Itu ditandai dengan 10 tahun kemitraan dalam kerangka kerja sama REDD+, dan terbukti 2016-2017 dianggap berhasil baik menurunkan emisi. Dia menjelaskan, dalam hal ini perhitungan bukan tentang pengurangan emisi atau polusi di kota-kota besar. Tapi mempertahankan hutan sebagai paru-paru dunia penyerap karbon. Lanjutnya, sesuai judul program, yang dihitung penurunan emisi gas rumah kaca dari deforestasi dan degradasi hutan dengan hilangnya lahan gambut. "Artinya dalam kurun 2016-2017 deforestasi dan degradasi hutan serta lahan gambut tidak banyak terjadi. Tentunya perhitungan masih terbatas pada wilayah percontohan yang diikutsertakan saja," ujar guru besar UI itu. Lanjutnya, mengurangi emisi tersebut dapat dengan dibatasinya penebangan liar, pembakaran, alih fungsi lahan, kebakaran lahan gambut, dan sebagainya. Dihubungi terpisah, Wakil ketua dari UI GreenMetric Dr Nyoman Suwartha menambahkan, perlu terus dipastikan bahwa tidak ada lagi penebangan liar atau pembakaran, terutama di daerah yang sudah menjadi wilayah percontohan. Menurutnya, program itu perlu dikembangkan ke wilayah lain. "Tentunya emisi dari sektor lain seperti transportasi, energi, persampahan, industri, dan lainnya tetap harus dijaga sesuai target penurunan kurang lebih 20 persen yang dicanangkan pemerintah, dengan usaha sendiri," katanya kepada Kompas.com, Kamis (9/7/2020).

On 11-12 October 2019, the UI GreenMetric team represented by Prof. Riri Fitri Sari and Mr. Junaidi, M.A. became the resource person at the Regional Workshop on UI GreenMetric for African Universities. The event was hosted by the University of Sousse, Tunisia. In the first day of the event, the UI GreenMetric team met the Vice-chancellor of the University of Sousse, Prof. Lotfi Belkacem, the Ambassador of Indonesia for Tunisia, Prof. Ikrar Nusa Bhakti and the speakers from Thailand, Nigeria and South Africa. The meeting was also attended by Asst. Prof. Sanor Klinngam (President of Phetchaburi Rajabhat University), Prof. A. Idowu Olayinka, (Vice Chancellor University of Ibadan, Nigeria), and Mr. Jason Huang (University of Witwaterstrand, South Africa). In this meeting we discussed the framework of cooperation between universities in Africa, by using UI GreenMetric thematic priority activities. The regional workshop on UI GreenMetric opened by Prof. Lotfi Belkacem. In his remarks he delivered various achievements of the University of Sousse in the field of internationalization and their efforts to improve themselves as a more environmentally friendly campus. Prof. Riri Fitri Sari expressed her appreciation to the University of Sousse and participants who attended this event. She emphasized the importance of collaboration in GreenMetric network to make each campus more environmentally friendly. Dr. Abdelmajid BenAmara (General Director of Scientific Research at Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education) and Prof. Ikrar Nusa Bhakti were also expressed their appreciation and emphasized the importance of sustainability by universities. In the first session, Mr. Junaidi explained the background of UI GreenMetric, the principles and activities in the UI GreenMetric Network, as well as the results of UI GreenMetric ranking for Tunisian universities. Meanwhile Prof. Riri also described some steps to complete the UI GreenMetric questionnaire, detailed explanation of the criteria and indicators in the GreenMetric questionnaire and answered various questions on the questionnaire. Some participants gave input on the GreenMetric questionnaire. One of them was on giving bigger points for student activities and fairness of giving values to developed countries and developing countries.
