In Indonesia, the increase of infected persons has not stopped, and in the areas where the infection is spread, restrictions of movement have been tightened again. In low-risk areas, mosques were opened for group studies, and face-to-face classes were partly resumed in some schools. But there are many schools mainly in the urban areas conducting distant learning. Due to disparities in distant leaning, children are more likely to feel anxiety and stress as their relationships with their friends and teachers are getting weaker. Not only for environmental conservation, but also for children to grow up physically and mentally, OISCA is carrying out activities for continuing efforts to learn through “experience” while considering safety under government guidelines.
At school in the rural area where face-to-face classes were resumed, they have carried out tree planting, maintenance work and recycling activities while taking measures against infectious diseases. (5 Sumenep Junior High School, Semenep Province)
Instead of large-scale environmental events such as eco camp that can’t be held, they created and distributed a booklet carrying environmental conservation methods that can be practiced at home.
In the urban area or in high-risk areas, they distributed vegetable seeds and fruit seedlings and supported efforts at home. (5 Karangtenah Elementary School, Sukabumi Province)
