Students of the Faculty of Agriculture UNS held an International Seminar About The Role of Students in Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals

Sunday, May 16, 2021, Sebelas Maret University's Faculty of Agriculture held an international webinar entitled "Students and Sustainable Development Toward the Global Goals". There were four speakers from 3 countries, namely Indonesia, Vietnam, and Japan. The four speakers were Nugroho Hasan (Outstanding Student I, Faculty of Agriculture, Sebelas Maret University), Livy Febria Tedjamulia (Achieving Student II, Faculty of Agriculture, Sebelas Maret University), Francis Geren Sta. Ana (Chairman of International Union Student Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry Vietnam), and Anggarda Paramita Imawati (Master Student of Kyoto University Japan). Each speaker brought a topic related to the role of students in implementing sustainable development goals (SDGs).

The International Seminar was opened symbolically by the Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture UNS Prof. Dr. Ir. Samanhudi, SP, MSi, IPM, ASEan Eng, and continued with the presentation of the speakers by the speakers. The topic presented by Nugroho Hasan as the first speaker was Localizing SDGs through Community Empowerment by Students. Hasan, as Nugroho Hasan is known, explained that the localization of SDGs can be started from the village (SDGs Desa) as the smallest part of the region. The second speaker, Livy (Livy Febria Tedjamulia's nickname) brought the material on Localizing SDGs: The Role of Indonesia's Indigenous Consumption as A Functional Food. Through her material, Livy explained that functional food potential can come from local resources and can realize SDGs number 3 "Good Health and Welfare".

The third speaker, Francis Geren, brought material on Social-Cultural Sustainability: Winning The Society. Francis brings a message to have an impact through social media, make good use of media, and be a positive and open-minded person to all differences in the world, be it religion, race, ethnicity, gender. The fourth speaker, Anggarda Paramita, brought material on Climate Change, Food Security, and Youth Engagement in Climate Adaptation. Through his presentation, Anggarda reminded that climate change can be a serious problem, especially for countries that do not have good mitigation preparations.

Overall, the four speakers gave a message to the webinar participants that the steps to implement the SDGs start from the smallest thing we can do at this time. This can be done from our attitude when we are in cyberspace so that it can have an impact on those around us.
