After earning a degree in library science, Mr. Welly Riswanto received the library manager position in Gombong’s High School. The school has just earned the title of Adiwiyata School (Green School).
Every day, before the classes, students pick up rubbish for 5 minutes. In order to make them aware of CO2 emissions, the students are required to turn off the engine of their motorcycles in front of the school gate and push them to the parking lot inside the school.
Mr. Welly says: “The villagers are really ignorant about environmental issues, so we want to make our school a good example for the community, the students can be the agents of change in the village.”
