To get the awareness of the community and sustainability of our solution we teach the community through public meeting, in chuches, on radio talks and with any other means that delivers information. We prepared an education module that help community to have a full package: explanation of concept "environment", involved parties, the threat to environment, contribution of parties and rights & obligations of the community. Occasional study tour in parks and other reserves help the community to understand the environment.

Enabling factors

1. The appropriate collaboration of local leaders: Local leaders provide tremendous support in mobilization but they create also an enabling environment and in the reinforce laws related to environment.

2.  The availability of financial resources: In some parts, the implementation of above building block requires money to pay some necessities such as printings, airtalks, etc.

Lessons learned

The community has a concern for the environment and they are ready to act when they are guided . Another lesson is that the environment can regenerate itself when taken care of.

Forcing the community is not a good option for a sustainable solution in preserving the environment. Teaching them to get the personal commitment is the best alternative.
