Hasbi Ali

Abstract


Our society have recently observed frequent inter-group frictions which were mostly triggered by only small things. These are not only among the general public but also the educated people. We have seen, for examples, conflicts between villages and brawls among students. If such a phenomenon continues, this nation will experience degradation that could threaten the nation's unity. Transformation of the values of local wisdom (local genius) both in the learning process and its promotion to the public in an effort to reduce global influences. These influences can damage the character of students and society in general as a result of the modernization. Religious Education and PPKn (Civic Education) have not been able to optimally shape the character of students and community. Therefore, character education is needed as a form of mental revolution of students and society through the internalization of cultural values and local wisdom as a form of social approach to character building of students and society.

Keywords: Social Approach, Character, Local Wisdom
