Year I focuses on solutions on “Development of Eco-Friendly Tourism (Green Economy) Edu-Green Based on IoT and Artificial Intelligence”, Year II “Community Empowerment through Environmentally Friendly Waste Management (Green Environment Recycling)” and Year III solutions focus on “Increasing Productivity UKM/UKMK through Economic Digitalization”.

The solution to problems related to vacant land is the development of "Edu-Green Tourism" by revitalizing PLTB (Wind Power Plant) and building PLTS (Solar Power Plant) as well as an environmentally friendly energy source to support the "Green Economy". Empowering the community to manage 'Edu-Green Tourism' is also a solution to problems related to declining economic levels because the community has lost their livelihoods in ponds due to tidal floods.

The management of waste into fertilizer is a solution to overcome the problem of the absence of waste management, giving rise to slums.
