Ekopesantren school is a term that is in bold to give appreciation to Islamic boarding schools that have concern for the environment, and nature conservation. This concern can be realized in the form of environmental programs that cover ten criteria (Ten Criteria for Ekopesantren Programs).
Applying Islamic Boarding School Cultural Values, namely: benefit, sincerity, togetherness, openness, equality, honesty, justice and environmental sustainability.
Implementing Environmental Education, namely: having the knowledge, skills, attitudes, motivation and concern for solving existing environmental problems and preventing new problems from occurring in the future, known as the KAASP approach – Knowledge, Awareness, Attitude, Skill and Participation ( Knowledge, Awareness, Attitudes, Skills and Participation). The KAASP is explained as follows:
Knowledge of the matters of interest so that they can be understood and internalized and is a prerequisite for the emergence of environmental awareness.
Awareness is a process in which people begin to awaken their interest, their desire to know something, such as the surrounding environment, environmental, social issues and so on.
Attitude means a change in attitude (behavior) which is one of the most important parts that must be developed, without changes from within ourselves, the knowledge and expertise that we already have will not mean much and be useful for other parties.
Skills are the importance of applying accumulated knowledge that can be applied / practiced in our daily lives so that certain skills are needed that can help contribute to one action.
Participation is to encourage the emergence of participation and direct action from each individual together, if only individuals who move will not help much with the changes we want.
