103 / Tanjung, Kampar, Riau
Suryati is a teacher and library manager in SMAN 1 Koto Kampar Hulu High School, which is where the Eco-Education Center will be located. Tanjung is a lowland village near the mountains, which faces dangerous environmental issues.
The village doesn’t have a main dump site so people end up burning their garbage. However, they do compost their food waste into fertilizers. Another problem is the ongoing deforestation by local people for farming and construction.
Besides cleaning the school once a month they have a tree planting and an upcycling program.
