Environmental education is significantly carried out with the aim of fostering the community to be responsible for environmental problems. Hygiene and health of a school environment need to be achieved and supported by various parties, especially all school members as the people in charge. In line with that, the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of National Education collaborate to run an environment-based school program which is called Adiwiyata (green school) Program. This program is a school assessment or evaluation award in creating an environment-based school. Adiwiyata program motivates every school to implement the principals of Adiwiyata.
