SDG 15 : Life On Land

A clean environment, fertile soil, and clean water need to be maintained. Two important efforts to maintain quality ecosystem sustainability are education on the preservation of the natural environment and waste management based on waste sorting. FIB UI continuously educates the public and the academic community by planting and exposing various rare trees, such as kepel, jamblang, khaya, tengkawang, lime, and others. With many trees in the FIB UI environment, FIB UI’s fresh green environment becomes a habitat for wild fauna. In terms of waste management, FIB UI organizes waste sorting into degradable, undegradable, and hazardous waste.
