Head of the Undip Ranking Office, Prof. Dr. Denny Nugroho Sugianto, S.T., M.Si. in his remarks while representing the Undip Rector, Prof. Dr. Yos Johan Utama, S.H., M.Hum. thanked the participants for participating in the webinar. “Hopefully this activity will be a milestone for our active role in helping the Indonesian government achieve the SDGs,” said Prof. Denny.

The first speaker, Lenny N. Rosalin, S.E., M.Sc., M.Fin, Deputy Minister of PPPA for Gender Equality, Ministry of PPPA RI explained about “The Latest Picture of Gender Equality in Indonesia and Challenges in Optimizing the Role of Women for the Development of Indonesian Human Resources”. She said that the Human Development Index (IPM) for women was still in moderate status, while the Human Development Index for men was already at high status so that the quality of female human resources was lower than that of men. “12 years from 2010-2022, 12 years Indonesia’s Human Development Index has increased but it turns out that the gender gap has not changed. The existence of this gap is a challenge in increasing the female TPAK rate which is targeted to reach 55% according to the mandate of the RPJMN 2020-2024,” said Lenny.

Lenny explained 5 (five) points of direction from the President of the Republic of Indonesia to increase welfare of Indonesian women which include Increasing Women’s Empowerment in Entrepreneurship with a Gender Perspective, Increasing the Role of Mothers and Families in Education/Parenting, Reducing Violence Against Women and Children, Reducing Child Labor, and Prevention of Child Marriage.

The second material on “National Achievement of SDGs 4 and 5 and the Human Development Roadmap Towards Golden Indonesia 2045” was presented by Dr. Sanjoyo, Mec as Manager of the Social Development Pillar of the National SDGs Secretariat, Ministry of PP/Bappenas. The four pillars of Indonesia’s 2045 development can be achieved through accelerating the education of the Indonesian people equally, with the aim of improving Indonesian education to create superior human resources. “One of the educational development strategies is through the role of the community in education development, as well as vocational education, entrepreneurship, and character education,” he said.

Prof. Bulan Prabawani, S.Sos., M.M., Ph.D. as the Coordinator for Social Affairs of the Undip SDGs Center explained about “Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as a Human Development Method Towards Golden Indonesia 2045”. Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) was created as an innovation and alternative to environment-oriented education to increase capacity and commitment in building a sustainable society. The target of ESD content is sustainable thinking and sustainable behavior. “The concept is that individual and group decision-making takes into account savings and ecological processes so that the quality of life improves both now and in the future,” said Bulan.
