Awareness and preparedness are good preventive practices that can lessen the impacts of natural and man-made hazards. This descriptive cross-sectional study ascertained the extent of awareness and preparedness of ninth-grade students in terms of natural hazards and man-made disasters. The study involved 103 respondents in two public secondary schools in Zambales, Philippines. The study found out that the students have a high self-reported awareness of the different disasters, and they assessed themselves to be often prepared for the occurrences of the different disasters. The students’ disaster awareness had a significant moderate correlation with disaster preparedness. The study recommends that the students be exposed to several disaster awareness and preparedness programs to develop their understanding and preventive practices. The students' awareness of several disasters may be sustained and enhanced through various media like audio-visual presentations, posters, and IEC (information, education, and communication) materials. As students become more aware of disasters, they become more prepared for disasters. Hence, the environmental education curriculum can accentuate disaster science and management teaching to young learners as they are crucial actors in disaster preparedness, response, and mitigation

Seltok is one of the traditional games of the Banyuwangi community in East Java. This game is attempted to be preserved by the “Kampoeng Batara”, a traditional game community located in the Papring, Kalipuro District, Banyuwangi. It is important to preserve traditional games, one of which is because the games contain learning concepts, such as mathematics. Unfortunately, these mathematical concepts have not been fully identified. The exploration of the seltok game in Kampoeng Batara aims to identify the mathematical concepts in the game. The research informants were one manager and two members of Kampoeng Batara community. Data collection was carried out by participatory observation, in-depth interviews, and cultural documentation. The data obtained were analyzed qualitatively. The identification results show the existence of mathematical concepts: measurement with non-standard units, geometry (circle and tube), set, relation, combination, and probability in the seltok game.

Other transgressive learning about sustainability needs to be part of the lives of students in the early years of elementary school, as they are responsible for seeking and achieving a sustainable future. However, the focus on socio-ecological sustainability does not seem to be present at this level of education as the literature has addressed. Therefore, the objective is to review articles from journals that address the relationships on socio-ecological sustainability and school garden in the early years of elementary school, published from 2016 to 2021. Based on the ideas of Okoli and Schabram (2010), they used if, in the research, the SciELO and Google Scholar databases and 10 papers were chosen, which were read in full for analysis and discussion. The results show a limited focus on how the teaching of socio-ecological sustainability and school garden has been carried out in elementary school, that is, interdisciplinarity is not widespread and the approach to this sustainability, through the use of the school garden, is non-existent in classroom. It was noticed in the articles that the school garden is insufficiently used in teaching, despite its relevance in teaching-learning, as well as the sustainability addressed in schools involves only the economic dimension when it is essential to connect the social and ecological approach.
