[Ambassador report] Sharing A Bit About the Environment with Children

Saturday, 09 November 2019, representing as Tunza Eco Generation Ambassador, I attended a socialization on how to make craft from waste around the environment.  The event was participated by children who lived near Dharma Suci playground, North Jakarta. The children were classified as street kids, where they are currently primary and junior high school students.

The children were encouraged to collect trash around the playground and turned it into art. The children were separated into three groups. The elders made a lamp creation from ice cream sticks, the younger ones create lampions from balloons and plastic bottles, while the littlest used leafs in order to create art or as a filling for a drawing.

I came to the event to explain a bit about the environment and the importance of throwing trash in the trash bin. The children showed great enthusiasm to answer simple questions I gave about the environment, that I even felt overwhelmed. They told me where they throw trash, and the types of trash there are. I gave gifts to those who could answer my questions, even though everyone got gifts in the end.

Before the event was closed, the children ate together. We used an Indonesia style way of eating that reflects togetherness. Food was spread out in a straight line, where the base used was banana leaf. Eating in this style is very fun and it’s not a rarity in Indonesia since we prioritize togetherness or family values.

    Hello Ida

    Thanks for the report about the great program you organized. For the young students, it might be a bit boring to just sit and learn about some knowledge. On the contrary, the way your program taught the lessons is just great. They can actively participate in the program by making those crafts by themselves. It must have been a very impressive activity for them and stay in their memory for a long time.

    Again, thank you for this great report and keep up with the great work.

    Hello Ida!
    This is your mentor Lisa.

    I see that you had some nice events with young children in your community! Since the habits come together to make the lifestyle of a person, having a habit that can positively influence the world around us instead of having the negative one is important. That's probably why education in early age is so critical for it contributes to the development of habits. Throwing trashes in the trash bin might seem really simple yet not many people do that. It doesn't even take them that much time or effort to do so but people just habitually don't do it. Teaching young children to grow this simple yet overarching habit is definitely an important job.

    Nicely done and thanks for sharing your story:)
