Indonesian Embassy London Foreword by His Excellency the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia H.E. Teuku Mohammad Hamzah Thayeb Green economy has become an integral part of Indonesia's development strategy. The four-track development strategy of pro-poor, pro-jobs, pro-growth and pro-environment adopted by the Indonesian Government aims at promoting an optimal balance between economic growth, social equality and environmental sustainability, taking into account the interests of both present and future generations. Against this background, the basic principles of green economy become clear: it is an integral and indivisible part of a multidisciplinary approach and it embraces various stakeholders, including the world's future leaders - our younger generation. The youth represent a significant number of the world's population and is key in the pursuit of green economy. They have the ability to change and influence policy-making process in pursuing the future development of a green economy. I should therefore like to congratulate the Indonesian Students Association in the United Kingdom (PPI-UK) for organising the 12th Indonesian Scholars International Convention (ISIC) on "Green Economy for Sustainable Development in Indonesia: Challenges and Opportunities from Multidisciplinary Approach", on 9-11 November 2012 in London. I commend this publication as it covers a wide range of issues and abundant creative and innovative ideas. It provides themes on energy, technology and environment, education, social and culture as well as issues on economy and politics. It also presents the challenges and offers the opportunities in pursuing green economy through different approaches and disciplines. Decisions made today affect the world's future. This publication shares the concerns of the younger generation about creating a better future and how green economy contributes in the process. I believe that this publication is indeed a constructive contribution by the Indonesian youth in developing a holistic approach towards a more sustainable and greener Indonesia in the future. By The Right Honorable, Prof. Dr. T. A. Fauzi Soelaiman, MSME Educational Attache to the UK They say that economics makes the world go around. But in doing so, it can introduce pollution, inefficiencies, and carbon emissions that cause global warming. The effects of this will significantly change the environment resulting in shifts of cultivating periods, more tornadoes, and rising sea levels, amongst other things. We need to move towards an economy which takes the effects on our environment into account. We, therefore, need a Green Economy. As defined by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), a Green Economy is "one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environment risks and ecological scarcities" [www.unep.org]. As the largest archipelagic country in the world, and also as the lungs of the world from the forests it contains, Indonesia has the responsibility to adopt a green economy. I, therefore, welcomed the initiative of the Indonesian Students Association in United Kingdom, or PPI-UK, to adopt the "Green Economy for Sustainable Development in Indonesia: Challenges and Opportunities from Multidisciplinary Approach" as the theme of the Indonesian Scholars International Convention in 2012 (ISIC 2012), also known as TIIMI 2012. ISIC 2012 was held in London on 9-11 November 2012. The event surpassed my expectations. ISIC is the largest and longest running conference organized by Indonesian students abroad. The ISIC 2012 was the 12th and largest conference so far. We had speakers from all around the world, and the discussions were very lively. The conference papers were strictly chosen from hundreds of abstracts to ensure only the best were presented. ISIC 2012 also introduced the Cultural Gala Night (CGN) for the first time, where the attendees w
