The 2022 UI GreenMetric National Workshop for Universities in Indonesia was on 30-31 August 2022 located at Universitas Multimedia Nusantara (UMN), also available in Zoom Meeting and YouTube Livestream. This workshop has the theme “Collective Actions for Transforming Sustainable Universities in the Post-Pandemic Time.” The first day (30/08/22) focused on meetings and discussions between the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking Network (UI GWURN) Coordinators at the National level. Led by Prof. Dr. Ir. Ambariyanto, M.Sc, National Coordinator of UI GWURN Indonesia and Vice Chancellor IV of Universitas Diponegoro, the coordinators held an open forum and discussed the development of Indonesian campus rankings at UI GWURN, creating global sustainability leaders, and partnering in solutions to sustainability challenges. University leaders are invited to discuss and provide suggestions for current and future UI GreenMetric programs and implementation. The open forum presented useful discussions and showed enthusiasm from various campuses who wanted to host the next UI GreenMetric National Workshop. Opening the highlight of the event on the second day of the 2022 UI GreenMetric Workshop, UMN Rector Ninok Leksono, touched on environmental issues such as the receding of the world's third largest river in China. Dr. Ninok opened the event by emphasizing the importance of campuses in caring about the impact of global warming. “Global warming does not only cause climate change but also extremism. Every year has been the hottest year in the last century. If humans do not put the brakes on the increase in the earth's surface temperature, what can happen is an environmental disaster that threatens a number of billions of people on earth," said the Rector. He also added the importance of universities in Indonesia to unite, especially with the existence of UI GreenMetric which is recognized by environmental institutions in the international arena. Even though there is a ranking that makes campuses compete to be green, this is a good competition because it aims to contribute and reduce emissions. Prof. Riri Fitri Sari, Chair of the UI GreenMetric World University Rankings, stated that universities are managers of nature, “It is important for us to leave the best for children and future generations. We from UI GreenMetric would like to thank UMN for being willing to host the UI GreenMetric National Workshop this year.” While Dr. Ir. Siti Nurbaya, Minister of Environment and Forestry of the Republic of Indonesia also participated in the opening ceremony for the second day of UI GreenMetric. According to him, the UI GreenMetric program in assessing universities based on the university's commitments and actions towards environmental sustainability is very relevant to the various policies and programs of the Ministry of Forestry that have been implemented.
