After a pre- project training for our members, the event started on the morning of Saturday, 8 th of December 2018. About 40 people rode bicycles together from FK-KMK UGM towards SDN Pogung Kidul, about 5 km away, in an effort to reduce gas emissions from vehicles. In form of games, we taught them steps on a more go green lifestyle. After that, we allowed the children to decorate plastic bottles cut in half, as a recycled pot for the seedlings. Balai Pengelolaan Daerah Aliran Sungai dan Hutan Lindung Serayu Opak Progo (BPDAS Yogyakarta) provided us with 30 fruit seedlings to plant around the school. Koalisi Pemuda Hijau Indonesia (KOPHI) acted as fasilitators to teach the children the correct way to plant and take care of the seedlings. The activity was closed with decorating the banner with green paint with the children.
