Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Humans have a reciprocal relationship with the environment. Humans need the environment to sustain life. Thus the environment needs humans for its sustainability. However, some humans have the wrong attitude towards the environment, that cause environmental damage. To achieve a sustainable environmental balance and addressing the increasingly massive environmental damage, a change in humans' perspective is required. This study aims to foster environmental awareness through a non-formal environmental education approach in the Bandung-Indonesia Eco Camp community from an environmental ethics perspective. Good environmental knowledge should be manifested in the attitudes and actions of daily living habits. This study uses relevant secondary data through literature and documents to analyze the cultivation of environmental habituation in the non-formal education community. Data were analyzed using a descriptive qualitative analysis approach. Based on the research results, found that environmental ethics internalization as a moral foundation made humans aware of their interactions with the environment. Humans think, behave, and act ethically and philosophically towards nature making the potential for environmental damage smaller. This article contributes to the discussion of environmental knowledge changing the way humans perceive the environment.
