The main goals of this seminar are to find out the most effective solution in overcoming the problems that we have in achieving Sustainable Development Goals Achievement. The brilliant idea that our presenters may have, can be presented orally and with a poster presentation. We also have a sight-seeing program to visit several villages in Lombok island, that have successfully developed recently. Several villages had been developed as rural tourism destination, and others had destructed by a big earthquake that occurred in 2018. We are looking forward to meeting you in Lombok.
