Abstract

Environmental issues have become global issues. Environmental damage caused by human activities has entered an alarming stage, which is basically more due to the nescience of the community to protect the environment. This nescience is also triggered by the lack of individual understanding of the importance of protecting the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct environmental awareness activities to the community through counseling activities that take the Green Ethos theme. The target object of this counseling activity is junior high school students. The method used in this research is the description method, as an initial step to identify sources of information that form the understanding and environmental awareness possessed by the object of research. Data collection techniques used were using observation techniques and focus group discussions. However, there are a number of obstacles that become resistors for them to be able to actively participate in protecting the environment, among others are the availability of facilities such as a trash can that has been categorized, making it easier for students to dispose of waste according to their type, lack of available drinking water in public facilities to reduce the consumption of plastic beverage waste in packaging, as well as eating and drinking habits on the street or other public facilities which only provide minimal trash can
