CAPTION: In addition to learning about the causes and effects of climate change in class, students are required to spend two to three hours a week implementing practical adaptation and mitigation solutions around school. In this picture, Dwi and her classmate Bagus are installing biopores outside their classroom. This takes less than an hour to complete, and the only tool required is a kind of long, T-shaped spade. By increasing the soil's re-absorption capacity, biopores play an effective role in reducing the risk of flooding. LOCATION: SMP N 7 School, Bandar Lampung, Indonesia. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Bagus Murti (left) and Dwi Wijayanti (right) .
