International Conference on Education and Social Sciences (ICESS) IV Unnes

Grasia Hotel

May 13, 2015 – May 14, 2015

Indonesia encounters several environmental and moral decadence issues. Some of those environmental issues are flood, landslides, forest fires, and others. In addition, the existence of drug abuse, promiscuity, binge-drinking, and corruption also shows that Indonesia faces the crisis of moral decadence. These problems must be solved with the right approach in order to gain precise solution. One approach that can be used is a "social conservation" approach.

Social conservation is viewed as a social perspective to the existing environmental and social issues. Social studies on conservation are essential to respond the environmental problems, poor implementation of environmental ethics, and public indifference toward environmental and moral issues. Social approach in responding the environmental and moral decadence problems which are summarized in social conservation has an important role to address the existing environmental and moral decadence issues because both issues are closely related to human involvement as the actors.

Social conservation aims to develop attitudes, behavior, and habituation within a loving community in maintaining, preserving, and implementing the values and norms of life which are believed to be true and accepted as a guide for the society and nation. The implementation of social conservation as an attempt to inculcate noble values is relevant to the efforts of national character development. Both aspects become an integral part because their existence reinforces each other. Therefore, the effort to strengthen social conservation is in accordance with the development of national character.
