JAKARTA, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- Sustainable development, responsible energy consumption, women's role and sustainable energy, among other topics, took the center stage of the 2nd World Parliamentary Forum on Sustainable Development, which kicked off Wednesday in Indonesia's resort island of Bali.
Members of parliaments from over 40 nations and representatives of international organizations took part in the two-day meeting, a statement from Indonesian House of Representatives said.
"One of the themes is sustainable energies for all. As we know, for now the use of the fossil fuel is worrying. Accordingly, the parliament raises this theme," head of Indonesian inter-parliamentary cooperation committee Nour Hayati said.
Hayati noted that the use of fossil fuel has been dominant in the past decades and it should be terminated by shifting to the sustainable energies.
Hayati said the meeting will raise people's awareness on the sustainable development goals.
