Like it or not, global warming is real; it is human-caused, and we need to do something about it. There is no more luxury for us to underestimate the impact of human activities to the environment. The frightening part is, since we all interconnected in a global ecosystem, any destruction to the environment will eventually affects every body through what known as the global effect.
There are at least three things we can all do and should try to lessen our pressure to the environment – or even prevent future disasters: 1. Repairing the existing damage that has already occurred; 2. Introducing and encouraging the use of alternative energy resources that is clean and ecologically friendly; and 3. Developing green technologies through innovations to conserve natural resources. This Seminar will be focussing on discussing these three points, under the theme: Green Technology Innovations for A Sustainable Society.
This International Seminar is organized by the Faculty of Science and Technology, University Al-Azhar Indonesia (UAI) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this university. In essence, this Seminar is also a manifestation of concerns by the faculty members on the continuing destructions of our environment, and an expression of this faculty to promote the use of green technology in the society. It is hoped that this seminar could help promoting green lifestyle through the use of green technology in this country, and to raise public awareness on the need to be innovative and to produce climate smart processes and products.
The Seminar will include keynote addresses, invited papers, tutorials, and contributed papers, to be conducted in Oct 2-4, 2012, with keynote speech by Drs. H. Jusuf Kalla, former Vice President of Republic Indonesia.
