Abstract


Peatlands have an important role in ecosystems as a carbon storage and helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.Inappropriate peatland conversion causes common problems such as forest fires which create severe air pollution and trigger the production of greenhouse gases due to the release of stored carbon. As a result, early education regarding peat soil conservation is necessary to ensure that people understand the importance of peat soil and the harm that happens when peatlands are converted inappropriately. This program aims to educate students about peatlands and raise awareness about the importance of protecting and conserving peat from an early age. Educational materials are delivered using creative books containing illustrated stories, important knowledge about peat, and interactive games to attract student’s interest in reading and make information easier to recall. The results of the final evaluation through a questionnaire revealed that using creative books to educate students about peatlands was successful in improving students' understanding of peatlands. This is proven by the increasing number of students who fully understand the peat information that has been taught from 3 students to 32 out of 33 students.

 

BAHASA INDONESIA ABSTRACT: Salah satu peran penting lahan gambut bagi ekosistem adalah sebagai pengikat karbon sehingga bermanfaat dalam mengurangi gas rumah kaca. Pengalihfungsian lahan gambut dengan cara yang tidak benar menyebabkan timbulnya masalah yang umum terjadi seperti kebakaran lahan gambut yang menyebabkan pencemaran udara melalui polusi kabut asap dan memicu terbentuknya gas rumah kaca akibat pelepasan karbon yang disimpannya. Untuk itu, pemberian edukasi mengenai pelestarian tanah gambut perlu diterapkan sejak dini agar masyarakat mengetahui peranan penting tanah gambut dan kerusakan yang terjadi apabila lahan gambut dialihfungsikan. Pengabdian ini bertujuan untuk memberikan edukasi pengenalan lahan gambut sekaligus meningkatkan kepedulian untuk menjaga dan melestarikan gambut sejak dini. Materi edukasi disampaikan menggunakan buku kreatif yang berisi cerita bergambar, pengetahuan penting tentang gambut, dan games interaktif agar menarik minat membaca dan membuat informasi menjadi lebih mudah diingat oleh siswa. Hasil evaluasi akhir melalui kuisoner menunjukkan bahwa pemberian edukasi tentang tanah gambut menggunakan media buku kreatif berhasil meningkatkan pemahaman siswa mengenai lahan gambut yang dibuktikan dengan bertambahnya jumlah siswa yang telah paham sepenuhnya mengenai materi gambut yang telah diajarkan dari semula 3 siswa menjadi 32 dari 33 siswa.
