DI FORUM AKADEMISI INDONESIA, ADHYAKSA: HADAPI 4 I DENGAN AMALKAN PANCASILA


Jakarta (DepokPress). Ketua Kwartir Nasional (Kwarnas) Gerakan Pramuka, Adhyaksa Dault menjadi pembicara Seminar Nasional yang diadakan Forum Akademisi Indonesia (FAI) di aula AMIK BSI Jakarta, Jalan SMA Kapin No. 292A, Kalimalang, Jakarta Timur, Sabtu (20/5/2017). Seminar ini dihadiri 250 peserta yang berasal dari para akademisi dan masyarakat umum.

 “Pancasila jangan dijadikan slogan semata, tapi harus diimplementasikan. 4 I yang menjadi masalah bangsa Indonesia ini bisa dihadapi dengan pengamalan pancasila,” ujar Adhyaksa, di lokasi seminar, Sabtu (20/5/2017).

 Adhyaksa juga berujar, 4 I itu yaitu industri, investasi, individualis, dan informasi. Orang-orang saat ini, menurut dia, individualis, seolah hidup di dalam lift karena orang yang di dalam lift biasanya hanya diam dan fokus pada tujuan yang akan dicapai.

“Informasi masuknya luar biasa, tapi orang-orang tidak bisa menyaring setiap informasi yang ada. Padahal informasi itu ada yang berupa fitnah, hoax, dan lain-lain,” ungkapnya.

 Ia menambahkan, masalah informasi ini juga sangat berpengaruh terhadap dunia pendidikan di Indonesia saat ini. Ini bisa dilihat di gadgetnya orang-orang, berapa orang yang ada foto orangtuanya.

 Hal senada disampaikan pembicara kedua, yaitu praktisi pendidikan dan Ketua STMIK Nusa Mandiri Jakarta, Moch. Wahyudi. Ia mengatakan bahwa pendidikan di Indonesia dihadapkan dengan pusparagam masalah pelik.

 “Dunia pendidikan Indonesia kita sedang dilanda berbagai masalah. Yaitu masalah pemerataan pendidikan, mutu pendidikan, efisiensi pendidikan, lulusan perguruan tinggi yang kurang terserap di dunia kerja, dan lain-lain,” ungkap Wahyudi, di lokasi.

 “Hari kebangkitan nasional juga harus bisa membangkitkan pendidikan nasional kita. Pemerintah memiliki peran untuk memfasilitasi dan swasta bisa membantu upaya ini,” pungkasnya.

 Seminar nasional dengan tema “Pendidikan Pilar Kekuatan Bangsa” ini juga dihadiri para tokoh. Di antaranya, Wakil Ketua MPR RI Hidayat Nur Wahid (sebagai keynote speaker) dan Direktur Pemberitaan LKBN Antara Aat Surya Syafaat (sebagai moderator).*

KETUA KWARNAS GERAKAN PRAMUKA ADHYAKSA DAULT: SOLUSI BANGSA INI PANCASILA


Jakarta (DepokPress) – Ketua Kwarnas Gerakan Pramuka, Adhyaksa Dault menjelaskan bahwa bangsa Indonesia tengah menghadapi berbagai masalah seperti korupsi, disintegrasi, LGBT, daya saing bangsa, narkoba, tawuran, dan lain-lain. Menurut dia, solusi untuk mengatasi masalah itu adalah Pancasila.

 Ini disampaikan Adhyaksa Dault saat menjadi pembicara Seminar Nasional yang diselenggarakan Kemendikbud RI. Seminar dengan tema “Kebhinnekaan di atas Keberagaman” ini dilaksanakan di Auditorium Museum Nasional, Direktorat Jenderal Kebudayaan pada Selasa, 23 Mei 2017.

 “Masalah Indonesia ini banyak. Ada masalah korupsi, LGBT, disintegrasi, daya saing bangsa, tawuran, narkoba, dan lainnya. Solusinya masalah itu ya Pancasila,” ujarnya, di lokasi seminar, Jakarta, Selasa (23/5/2017).

 Selain itu, menurut Ketua Umum DPP KNPI 1999-2002 ini, masyarakat Indonesia tak boleh terkotak-kotak berdasarkan daerah dan lain-lain. Pasalnya, masyarakat Indonesia memiliki rumah besar yaitu Negara Kesatuan Republik Indonesia (NKRI) yang harus dijaga dan dirawat.

 “Kita ini punya rumah besar, ada kamar 34 provinsi dan lain-lain. Nah, kita punya tugas, kita tidak boleh lupa bahwa kita satu rumah besar yaitu NKRI,” terangnya.

 “Sejak reformasi, banyak yang memikirkan kamarnya sendiri-sendiri dan eksklusif. Padahal, kebhinnekaan dalam keberagaman itu haruslah inklusif,” tambahnya.

 Terhadap kebhinnekaan tersebut, Prof. Hasjim Jalal berpesan agar masyarakat Indonesia tidak boleh melupakan tiga prinsip penting dalam berbangsa dan bernegara. Tiga prinsip itu, menurut dia, adalah hal fundamental.

 “Pertama, satu bangsa. Bagaimanapun banyaknya daerah, kita satu bangsa. Kedua, satu negara. Bagaimanapun banyaknya pulau, kita satu negara. Ketiga, satu nusa,” katanya, di lokasi seminar, Selasa (23/5/2017).

 “Bervisi jangka panjanglah. Karena perjuangan tidak hanya satu, dua atau lima tahun. Apalagi kita punya banyak potensi, kekayaan alam, kedaulatan di laut dan udara,” jelasnya.

 Sebagai informasi, seminar nasional ini dihadiri oleh 150 peserta, yang berasal dari komunitas sejarah dan pecinta museum, instansi terkait, guru-guru SMP dan SMA se-DKI. Hadir juga civitas akademika kampus dari berbagai daerah.

 Sementara yang menjadi pembicara adalah Dirjen Kebudayaan Hilmar Farid, Ph.D.; Ketua Kwarnas Gerakan Pramuka Dr. Adhyaksa Dault, S.H., M.Si., Prof. Hasjim Jalal; Dr. Rushdy Hoesein; Prof. Dr. Joko Marihandono; dan Prof. Dr. Ing Wardiman Djojonegoro.*

An iconic feature near the top of Mount Everest has collapsed
