The speakers of this seminar were Prof. Dr. H. Arief Rachman, M. Pd, Prof. Dr. Hafid Abbas, Prof. Dr. Hafid Cangara, and Dr. Sumiati. 
 
Director of Community Education, Ella Yulaelawati, M.A, M.Pd, in his speech, represented by Prof. Dr. H. Arief Rahman, said that in the flow of information and the technology, the younger generation have much opportunities to learn positive things through audio, visual and audiovisual communication media.
 
The development of information and technology may give negative influence on life style. Thus, character education is important to teach. 
 
All parties need to act to strengthen the identity and character of Indonesia based on Pancasila which is reflected in attitudes, behavior, and action. We hope people in Indonesia will practice the value of kindness, good will, and good action in life. 
 
The character education develops through continuous learning process and practices to be a good person and citizen. 
 
“Character education need moral awareness as part of nation and without any restrictions such as ethnicity, religion, and race,” said Ella in her written speech. 
 
Indonesia was built based on moral values from religion, local wisdom, and culture. but the character education sometimes clashes with certain interest which less accommodate difference. Thus, I think it is important to teach love and proud to be Indonesian and respect Pancasila and Bhineka Tunggal Ika. 
 
The purposes of education are to create intelligent and good human. Thus, character education is strongly important to minimize destructive behavior of children, teenagers, and adults.
