International Scientific Meeting

Mar 6th, 2012 | By | Category: Uncategorized



London, UK- Last December, the Indonesian Embassy in London held an international scientific meeting.
At this event Indonesian students had a great opportunity to network around environmental issues.  Many Indonesian students from undergraduate, masters, and even doctoral programs participated in this meeting. The interesting part of this meeting was, it attracted both students from Indonesia and Indonesian students who study abroad in Paris, Netherlands, London, Japan, Singapore, and others.

The theme and title of the meeting was: Sustaining Renewable Energy in Indonesia: Challenges and Opportunities in Multidisciplinary Perspectives. The objective was to discuss the energy crisis, which is a problem felt around the world. Indonesia in particular, has to cope with increasing energy demands from its people and industries. This year’s theme emphasized the viability and the adaptability of the existing and future renewable energy sources in Indonesia. There are many ideas and choices, but how many of those can to be implemented in Indonesia? This is what we discussed in the meeting.

There were many other sub-topics, such as:

  • Energy: Environmental Degradation, Renewable Energy and Environmental Solutions, Environmental Economics
  • Economic Sustainability: Environmental Challenges and Economic Growth; Sustainable Business Management and CSR
  • Cultural Sustainability: Protecting, Preserving and Conserving (Socio-culture)

It was my pleasure to be invited to present my project about Eco-preneurship, Empowerment and Economic Sustainability.
