This is a collaboration work of a lecturer and a group of three or four students doing survey and investigation of a certain aspect of sustainable development in the urban areas. Each group has to come up with an article that would be accepted for publication in the special issue of the Widyakala Journal. The intention is to familiarize students in doing professional writing, which is corresponding with the ethical theory, as they learned.  Guided or supervised by the lecturers a wide range of topics have been written and presented in the classroom seminar. In this edition, the topics cover the aspects of green construction materials, green roof, green energy, renewal energy, water treatment, and industry 4.0 technology. It is expected that these articles, would trigger further researches within the universities and beyond. On the other hand, the lesson learned from the classroom seminar could also be expanded for a larger seminar and better quality of research articles." Guest Editor: Prof. Ir. F.
