The school's role in increasing environmental awareness is by internalizing the value of caring for the environment in the curriculum, extracurricular activities, school culture, and exemplary. The positive impact of strengthening the character of caring for the environment is the progress of learning motivation, creativity and productivity, and the improved character of students.
