Abstract

Over the last five years, Universitas Indonesia (UI) has developed an on line 'green' ranking for world universities respect with respect to green campus and sustainability in the universities all over the world. In line with this program, six focus areas defined by Indonesia research Agenda, also in conjunction with the MDGs, the research theme of Engineering Faculty of the University of Indonesia (FTUI) for the period of 2010-2014 is Integrated Design in Urban Eco-technology for Quality of Life and Humanity. Consistent with this theme, FTUI plan to become a role model on how to build a community with a strong orientation toward green and sustainable environment. To support this idea, an integrated program was launch with a themeof 'FTUI towards Green and Sustainable Society'. In this program, several development in waste management and, water and wastewater management and energy saving will be conducted in the FTUI setting. Research on waste management will be focused on solid waste management to encourage 3R (Reduce, reuse, and recycle), and research on water management should prioritize in protecting sustainable water supply in the neighborhood of FTUI campus. Meanwhile research in energysaving will focus in development of smart building as a model for energy efficiency in electricity use. Subsequently all research and result will be socialized/promoted to all FTUI community to encourage public awareness and participation in green and sustainable society.
