The National Seminar entitled “Geography Potential for Strengthening National Integration” was held by Muhammadiyah University of Purwokerto. Prof. Dr. M. Baiquni, M.A. as chairperson of the FORPIMGEO presented a paper entitled “Sustainable Development Leadership” explaining the development of civilization since the Industrial Revolution 1.0 that occurred in Britain and continental Europe, until the development of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 with digital technology, computers, the internet and smartphones. The impact of development, social change and the environment requires understanding and solutions to problems that arise. Geography education and the development of geography are needed to be the solution for the Indonesian nation, the Unity in Diversity. Social justice and spatial justice must be upheld so that people’s welfare and sustainable development can be achieved.
Sustainable Development leadership is developed through education since children learn from experience in the surrounding environment to be able to understand the world. Exemplary is the key to sustainable development education. Humans are given the mandate as Khalifatullah fil Ardh, the leadership of the earth with the Astha Brata model must learn from nature … “Experience, experience, experience”.
