Gracia Paramitha Indonesia International Relations student at Airlangga University
I'm Gracia Paramitha. I'm currently finishing thesis in Department of International Relations, Airlangga University, Surabaya, and am an assistant lecturer for research methods and theory of international relations. I like singing, reading books, writing articles and dancing traditional dance. I'm extremely interested in environmental issues. I've got summer scholarship from US Department of State to study Global Environment Issues, on July 2nd-August 9th 2010. I participated in Copenhagen as the Shadow Negotiation Team-UN Framework Convention on Climate Change 2009, Princess of the Environment in 2002, and the delegation of Indonesia in Millennium Kids International Environmental Children Conference 2002 in Perth, Western Australia. The latest green project is called Ecotainment, which encourages young creativity in combating climate change, then I've organized Asian Pacific Interfaith Youth Camp 2008. As the host, Surabaya welcomes 75 deleg ates from twelve countries to discuss climate change from their own religious perspective. I was also chosen by British Council to participate in Project Management and Leadership Training on Climate Change in Bogor, 2008. Being graceful for sustainable development of energy is more important to me, because it's one concrete solution to stop global warming obstacles.
