Abstract

The goal of this project is to apply eco-literacy through sustainable practices in schools that are not part of the Adiwiyata school program. This study combines analytical description techniques with a qualitative methodology. There are 1154 pupils enrolled at SMA Negeri 19 Medan, where this study was carried out. The study conducted at SMA Negeri 19 Medan yielded findings that initially encountered resistance from both students and teachers on the ongoing adoption of eco-literacy in the classroom. However, because of the advantages that the program provided, students and teachers who had initially objected to it began to respond favorably to it in the second year of its implementation. Thus, it can be concluded that ecoliteracy which was implemented through continuous habituation at SMA Negeri 19 Medan was declared successful even though initially this school was not included in the Adiwiyata school.
