Benefits Of Greening For Human Enviroment (Part 2)

Global warming is no longer an environmental issue but a real fact that the environmental problem is happening. Global warming causes the cycle to be difficult to predict the change of seasons. Real facts of global warming was marked by drought which caused droughts and heavy rainfall causing flooding.

Real action that can prevent the deterioration of environmental conditions due to global warming is to preserve and maintain the natural environment today. Various environmental maintenance concept established by international organizations and communities in the country. Real action to do is greening the environment, within the scope of the macro and micro.

In macro scale, such as afforestation undertaken extensive mapping of forest conservation and protection of forest conservation consistency in the region / county and state. For micro-scale that the scope for urban greening. Environmental problems such as deteriorating urban air quality and water supply problems caused by the deteriorating condition of water catchment areas.

Water catchment areas should be a green zone has now changed into the area awakened. The vast amount of changes in catchment land being woken warming centralized city called "Urban Heat Island". This centralized heating increases the temperature of the heat in the city, so the use of air conditioners in buildings is increasing.

Greening of urban land is real action to save the environmental conditions continue to deteriorate. Through reforestation, environmental problems such as flooding, water shortages, and the frequency of the environmental impacts of air pollution on the wane. Greening one easy way to save the environment. Maintaining a green zone with greening / green movement will improve the quality of the environment and living creatures. The following can be seen 25 benefits for the environment and human greening:

11. Protect Pedestrian and Cyclists

Pedestrians would be happy to get around town by bicycle or walking along the street when there are shade trees. In addition to the board appointed for track cyclists, providing green zone serves to reduce the number of motorists on the highway.

12. Natural Fertilizer Supply

Leaves are falling on the road or in the soil can be recycled into compost for other plants and of course free of chemicals. The leaves that fall to the ground enough left to rot and with the soil, this way more natural than burning trash tree.

13. Gardening in Your Own Home

Greening can also be performed in a narrow area or even in homes that do not have vacant land. Greening at home without the land can be done in the wall of the house or the balcony of the house. Plants are chosen for example vegetable or herbal remedies that do not require the planting medium is too big.

14. Control Landscape

Trees can disguise the shape of the building seemed stiff and do not have aesthetic value. The building that has trees would look more humane and healthy eyes.

15. Breaking Wind

The trees on the green line functions to break down wind for air circulation are spread evenly in one area. Trees also protect the building construction from the brunt of strong winds in the rainy season.

16. Prevention of Erosion

Tree root fibers serves to prevent erosion that causes landslides, it is what makes the benefits of forests is essential for life. The roots of the trees will protect the soil so as not fragile, especially in the rainy season.

17. Interior Walls

Greening can now be done anywhere by using any medium, especially the walls. Green Wall, also serves to soundproof and recovery of patients either in hospital or treated at home. Green landscape on the walls give the impression of shade for anyone, it is good for health.

18. Environmental Education in Schools

Classroom space can also be used as a medium greening, such as the arrangement of classrooms that put furniture for pot plants. This kind of atmosphere will add to the impression of calm in the classroom because the air is fresh and the students benefit from this reforestation.

19. Improving Image Zone

Landscape greening will improve the image of the region because of the resulting visualization is a beautiful sight. Image of green areas is better than dense areas that do not have a green zone in it. Green landscape is very important to improve the image of the region, from the slum into a beautiful, arid region into the shade.

20. Interconnection region

The green line on the pedestrian can be attributed to a variety of other green lines in different regions. Greening also serves to connect the pedestrian routes and public zones that exist in the city.

21. Means Learning

City park can be an educational tool for students of elementary school students. The city park or forest city into a laboratory for school children to learn about plants and the ways to preserve the environment.

22. Public Space Children

Greenery in the city park beneficial for child development, as it is closer to nature and training in environmental sensitivity. Bring the kids to the park much more useful than carrying children playing in the mall.

23. Maintain Springs

Trees for the indigenous tribe Kajang very big role in maintaining the quality of the springs in the area of ​​customs. Trees store the bag of water in the soil which bermanfaar for quality springs. Greening around rivers and water springs useful for quality springs in the region.

24. Competitiveness of Cities

Cities beautiful and has many green zones, green line can be a part of the increase in local tourism. Singapore managed to advance the tourism industry thanks to the Singapore government's commitment to greening movement in various corners of the city of Singapore. This situation led to the number of tourists Singapore is always higher than Indonesia, although Indonesia has a beautiful natural scenery.

25. Green As Esthetic Zone

Structuring the landscape in the area and the green zone will add to the artistic impression is no less interesting with entertainment in the building. Greenery in the city park will beautify the area and visual form.

Well this is a very comprehensive greening benefits to our understanding together, without the greening of the earth will feel barren and threaten human safety.

Benefits of Greening For Human Environment (Part 1)

Global warming is no longer an environmental issue but a real fact that the environmental problem is happening. Global warming causes the cycle to be difficult to predict the change of seasons.

Greening one easy way to save the environment. Maintaining a green zone with greening / green movement will improve the quality of the environment and living creatures. The following can be seen 25 benefits for the environment and human greening:

1. Greening To Prevent Flooding

Greening can restore the function of water catchment areas in the city. Water catchment areas can include football fields, city parks and urban forests. Maintaining the water catchment area is a real action greening movement. The benefits of reforestation in the region is to reduce the discharge or runoff water during the rainy season due to seep into the soil easily. This effort is a way to prevent urban flooding due to a reduction in the amount of water catchment areas.

2. Maintaining the quality of groundwater

The more green zones in the city, the quality of ground water, the better. Greening is very important to maintain green zones in the city. Imbalance proportion of land area green and woke zones will damage the quality of ground water. Waste seep into the ground will damage the quality of ground water so the impact on health if the water is back on consumption.

3. Protecting wildlife / edhapis

Green environments such as urban forest habitats for wildlife such as rare birds in the city. Greening of the urban forest will save the population of endangered species that play a role in the ecological system environment.

4. Reduce air pollution

Greening the road corridor also serves to reduce pollutants in the air is wasted. Tree canopy serves to cleanse the solid particles such as lead and will stick to the branches and tree trunks.

5. Reduce the Impact of Acid Rain

Pollution from vehicles and factories adversely affect air quality. To reduce waste pollution released into the air, trees are needed to absorb the CO2 that has been mixed with the sulfur. The trees will reduce the impact of the discharge of pollutants so that the air they breathe is cleaner.

6. Climate Control

Plants can create a better life for people, especially in areas of tropical and subtropical climates. In the temperate regions, the leaves will fall so that sunlight can illuminate the building. In the tropical areas, leafy trees serves to reduce the effects of direct sunlight.

7. Reduce dust particles

Trees also serve to reduce levels of dust particles. According to the observations Bianpoem (1997) trees with an area of ​​300 × 400 m2 can reduce levels of dust particles than 7,000 particles / liter to 4,000 particles / liter.

8. Prevent the Glasshouse Effect

In addition to reducing particle dust, trees also reduce the glasshouse effect. The glasshouse effect is the accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere is causing the atmosphere perforated, but the tree can be prevented because the forest can change 3.7 tonnes of CO2 into 2 tons of O2.

9. Reinforce the direction of the road

Greening in city road corridor serves to clarify the direction of the road, especially areas that crowded many buildings. The existence of useful trees for the rider as a marker direction to reach the destination.

10. Economic Benefits (Office Building)

Reforestation by planting trees around the office building will cost of air conditioning in the building. AC maintenance operating costs will be costly, than the maintenance of shade trees.

Green Environmental as The Place For Learning

Just five minutes of exercise a day in the outdoors can improve mental health, according to a study and policy makers should encourage more people to spend time in parks and gardens.

Some researchers at the University of Essex found that just five minutes of "green activity" such as walking, gardening, cycling or planting trees to encourage the spirit and self-esteem.

"We believe that there will be many potential benefits for all the people, society and the health care costs if all groups of people doing a lot more self medication with exercise on green place," Barton said in a statement about the study, published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology. (between)

Many studies have shown that exercise in the open can reduce the risk of mental illness and improve the taste of healthy, but Jules Pretty and Jo Barton, who led the study, said that so far no one knows how much time needs to be spent in the exercise in the green so that the benefits were seen.

Barton and Pretty looked at data from 1,252 people with mental health status, gender, and age, were taken from 10 existing studies in Britain.

They analyzed activities such as walking, gardening, cycling, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding and planting trees.

They found that the greatest health changes occurred in the young and those who suffer mentally ill, although people of all ages and social groups also enjoy the benefits.

The greatest positive impact on self-esteem emerged from a five-minute dose of "green exercise on the spot".

All the natural environment beneficial, including parks in small cities or large, they said, but green areas with water seems to have a more poAt least the executive education "Teacher" in particular should be able to create a school environment becomes green to support mental and physical health of children's intelligence. In addition to reducing the effects of global warming at least a good many of the Green School Environment. Unlike school portrait in big cities with a program that looks barren pavingisasi (my term) actually reduces that child's learning media surrounding natural environment.

Let's green the school each with promoting the concept of "Nature School" school environment is an environment that blends with nature and nature as a child's learning media.sitive impact.

Moreover, if learning in places green area certainly can affect brain development in learning. We can imagine ...

Practical ways Embedding Concept Green School

Green School Environment.
Realize the concept of the environment to go green community must begin with personal awareness so that the process can be sustained for the long term. Therefore, the application of green lifestyle awareness should be applied as early as possible. One effective way to do that is through education in schools, where most children spent their day to interac with the environment in addition to the house.

In the application of this green concept, the important thing is the sense of involvement to be applied against any child-related activities as well as knowledge of the benefits of applying the concept of green living.

Here are some ways you can do to instill environmental awareness with the go green concept:


  • Make the waste places that are separated between organic and non-organic. In addition, non-organic waste can be separated again into plastic, paper, porcelain and metal. This is done while promoting the importance of grouping bins in the recycling process.
  • Spend at least a few hours a week to invite students of gardening and planting a variety of crops such as flowers, herbs or a simple mosquito repellent plants. Do not forget to make a turn to take care of the garden and cultivate awareness of the benefits of reforestation.
  • Slipped environmentally conscious programs in learning and extracurricular activities, for example by slipping a composting project in science lessons or recycling of waste paper derived from teaching and learning activities. The results can be used to buy something for the sake of pupils or school.
  • If there is a craft lesson, ask students to create something from recycled materials such as old newspapers, old magazines, old plastic cups and so on. Do not forget to explain why it is better to use second-hand goods if possible.


Instilling environmental awareness of the importance of having to go green concept should be done gradually and consistently. However, if starting from such an early stage in the school environment, awareness of the concept would be more easily embedded and be remembered by someone until he is an adult.

The Benefits Of Green School

School embodies the interactive world conditions on a small scale. However school should remain an important part in the governance of a healthy natural environment. One is the effort that the school still looks shady, green, comfortable and healthy. For that we will share how to stay healthy schools program "Green School".

School greening useful to have a positive impact, protection of flora and fauna, water and soil erosion control, climate amelioration, minimize the reflection of sunlight, soil erosion control, reducing runoff, soil binding. Construction of vegetation may regulate water balance by way of interception, infiltration, evaporation and transpiration. Thus greening the school environment as an element of "forest school" needs to be improved conceptually includes planning, implementation and maintenance by considering the aesthetic aspects, environmental preservation and functional. Implementation should be in accordance with the planning as well as maintenance must be carried out continuously.

Some of the benefits of greening:

  1. As the lungs school. Plant as a green element, the growth produces acid substances (O2) that is necessary for living things for breathing;
  2. As the regulatory environment (micro), the vegetation will cause local environmental air becomes cool, comfortable and fresh;
  3. The creator of environmental (ecological);
  4. Natural Balance (adaphis) the establishment of places of natural life for the animals that live in the surrounding areas;
  5. Protection (protective), the physical condition of the natural surroundings (strong wind, sun, gas or dust);
  6. Beauty (aesthetics);
  7. Health (hygiene);
  8.  Recreation and education (educational).
In addition to those already noted above, the results of the greening of schools can also be used as a means of learning outside the classroom. For example, as a "laboratory" schools, especially in teaching biology subjects. Due to the results of the greening of schools there are a wide variety of plant species both perennials and ornamental and medicinal plants.

Green School

The meaning of the word Green school is environmentally friendly school. But in a broad sense, is defined as schools that have the commitment and systematically develop programs to internalize environmental values ​​into all school activities. Therefore, the physical appearance of the school ecologically laid out so that it becomes a vehicle for learning for the entire school community to be wise and environmentally friendly behavior (Sugeng Paryadi, 2O08).

See the environmental conditions around this time, the concept of green schools is very important to be implemented more widely. Various natural disasters such as floods, landslides, and so on, mostly caused by human actions which damage the ecosystem environment. In addition to surrender to Him, of course, necessary to the realization that people more friendly to the environment.

Here, the concept of green schools in growing attitude of care for the environment through a process of learning and habituation becomes important and strategic. At school, the learning process leading to the efforts to establish the behavior of students who care about the environment through a learning model that is applicable and touches of everyday life. Meanwhile, the school environment to be used as habituation behavior of daily care for the environment. Thus, both aspects of the earlier, towards one goal, namely internalizing or habituation environmentally conscious behavior in everyday life.

Sugeng Paryadi cites the opinion, the preparation of green schools program is done holistically to link all existing programs in schools and to consider enabling and inhibiting factors.

Internal potential schools such as the availability of land, water resources, energy,
landscapes, traditions surrounding communities, and ecosystems are objects in the development of green school concept. Meanwhile, in view of the NGO Indonesian Biodiversity (Biodiversity), green schools program should develop 
  1. a curriculum-based environment; 
  2. community-based education; 
  3. improving the quality of the school environment and its surroundings; 
  4. support systems that are environmentally friendly; and 
  5. environmentally sound school management.

Implementation of green schools is done in three steps: first strategic, curricular fields, the learning environment is integrated with the existing subjects. Teachers must be good at learning pack with understanding and learning experience that is applicable. Second, the extra fields that lead to the formation of students' awareness of environmental conservation through environmental education and environmental work competitions.

Thirdly, the management of the school environment, namely through 
  • The utilization and management of the school grounds into natural laboratory like to gardens and medicinal plants, solicitation saving energy and water, recycling of waste through a process of reduce, reuse and recycle, and 
  • Management of social environment in the form of habituation behavior of real-perila my positive in them discipline, cooperation, caring, honesty, and respect for local knowledge

The school environment is the environment of everyday life of students. If the school environment can be organized and managed properly, it will become an effective vehicle for the establishment of environmentally conscious behavior
