Reading literacy competence is an educational problem that requires special attention and needs continuously improved. Reading literacy should begin earliest in the family environment. After entering the school, teachers need to work together with parents to raise a reading culture. Public of Elementary School (SDN) Pulau Kelapa 01 Pagi has not involved parents yet before in encouraging students to read. Therefore, the purposes of this activity are to educate parents about the importance of reading literacy and evaluating the Literacy Project assigned to parents. This community service activity uses the method to educate parents with tutorials, discussion, and experience sharing techniques. After opening the mindset and giving the knowledge about literacy reading, participants, namely the parents of 29 fourth grade students, were given a Literacy Project assignment for a week. This activity has increased the attention of parents about the importance of reading and fostering reading through the family environment. However, in fact, in the implementation of the Literacy Project, parents have not yet fully carried out. Parents still need to implement reading habits at home. In this case, the school needs to collaborate with parents in creating a pleasant literacy atmosphere through various literacy activities in a sustainable manner. Universities can help realize these programs.

However, conservation efforts are always carried out in monotonous ways, resulting in various obstacles that are beyond the control of this ethnic group. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out empowerment activities so that the maintenance and preservation of traditional music can be sustainable. An understanding of the dangers of traditional music extinction is needed, the factors causing extinction and maintenance strategies.

Plastik adalah bahan sintesis dari hasil polimerisasi berbagai macam monomer. Hampir semua jenis plastik akan melayang ataupun mengapung dalam badan air. Hal ini akan menyebabkan plastik terkoyak-koyak dan terdegradasi oleh sinar matahari, oksidasi dan abrasi mekanik membentuk partikel-partikel plastik. Ecobrick adalah salah satu cara penanganan limbah plastik dengan mengemas plastik yang bersih dan kering ke dalam botol plastik. Pemberdayaan masyarakat untuk mengolah sampah plastik menjadi sesuatu yang berguna dalam jangka waktu yang lama adalah salah satu kunci keberhasilan program daur ulang limbah plastik. Kegiatan pengabdian ini akan memberikan manfaat kepada berbagai pihak, diantaranya bagi peserta pengabdian bagi masyarakat, bagi anggota pelaksana penyuluhan, bagi Perguruan Tinggi dan bagi pemerintah. Khalayak sasaran dalam kegiatan pengabdian ini adalah masyarakat Kampung Bunga Raya Kabupaten Siak. Berdasarkan hasil kegiatan pengabdian kepada masyarakat yang telah dilakukan dapat diketahui bahwa masyarakat sudah bisa membuat tempat duduk dari ecobrick.

Ide tentang media lokal tercantum dalam Undang-undang Penyiaran nomor 32 tahun 2002 untuk mendukung terwujudnya demokrasi, desentralisasi politik dan menghidupkan industri media yang berskala lokal. Selain itu media lokal juga diharapkan dapat menjadi media sumber informasi yang relevan bagi warga lokal sehingga tercipta pemberdayaan masyarakat lokal. Meskipun demikian, berbagai tantangan dan hambatan dari segi bisnis maupun dari segi kebijakan terus muncul sehingga keberlangsungan media lokal menjadi terhambat. Kegiatan pengabdian kepada masyarakat yang dilakukan kepada jurnalis dan pengelola media lokal Jawa Barat ini dimaksudkan untuk menyebarkan hasil penelitian dari tim Fakultas Ilmu Komunikasi, Universitas Padjadjaran tentang kebijakan media dan keberlangsungan media lokal di Indonesia. Selain melakukan diseminasi hasil penelitian, tim Universitas Padjadjaran juga melakukan Focus Group Discussion (FGD) perihal berbagai permasalahan yang melingkupi industri media lokal, dan juga untuk mengelaborasi kemungkinan kegiatan kolaboratif antara pihak akademisi dan praktisi media lokal terkait dengan advokasi media lokal dan untuk menjaga keberlangsungan dari Industri media lokal di Jawa Barat. Ke depannya diharapkan dapat terjalin kolaborasi riset dan berbagai kegiatan kerjasama lain yang lebih konsisten dan bersifat jangka panjang.

Pemerintah Indonesia terus berupaya melaksanakan program Sekolah Sehat secara nasional. Namun disparitas dalam implementasinya masih tinggi. Sebagian besar sekolah di daerah terpencil belum mampu melaksanakannya. Seperti Sekolah Dasar Negeri 08 Berinang Mayun dan Sekolah Dasar Negeri 02 Sidan yang terletak di tengah-tengah perkebunan kelapa sawit di Landak, Kalimantan Barat. Siswa dan masyarakat sekitar kedua sekolah tersebut adalah masyarakat Dayak yang kualitas kesehatannya masih buruk. Atas dasar itu, kami mengadakan lokakarya Sekolah Sehat di kedua sekolah tersebut. Workshop dilakukan melalui ceramah, focus group discussion, dan simulasi. Pada akhirnya, peserta diharuskan membuat rencana sekolah yang mempromosikan kesehatan sebagai luaran. Sejumlah indikator seperti analisis KWL, tanggapan peserta, dan analisis pre-post test menunjukkan adanya peningkatan pengetahuan dan keterampilan peserta tentang program sekolah bina kesehatan. Namun pencapaian yang paling nyata adalah peserta telah merancang rencana Sekolah Sehat yang akan mereka laksanakan di sekolah masing-masing.
