Indonesia is a country that has a lot of diversity in society. Diversity is often seen as a
difference, the difference being sharpened and often used by some to fulfill the
ambitions and interests of the individual or group. This led to horizontal conflicts that
led to the decline of the Indonesian nation, and the occurrence of riots everywhere.
The purpose of this article is to describe the urgency of Civic Education based on
multicultural in fostering the diversity of Indonesian society. This research method is
literature review. Multicultural based Citizenship Education (PKn) plays a very
important role in fostering the diversity of Indonesian society so that diversity is not a
source of conflict, but rather as a basis in tolerating and respecting the diversity that
exists in order to realize the state of Indonesia with Unity in Diversity. Civic learning
based on multicultural education is a simple method and strategy, in order to create
the character of the nation's children who can live in the nuances of difference.
Therefore, in the learning process students should be brought closer to the
community, life and mutuality in society. Students should be familiar and trained in
dealing with and solving existing diversity problems in society. Civics teachers must
make a self-transformation and self-restoration to prepare themselves for guarding
and teaching on a multicultural basis. Teachers should get guidance and direction in
order to play a maximum role so that multicultural education can be implemented
through Civics well. Multicultural education in both Civics and other subjects should
be improved especially in former conflict areas and areas with considerable potential
to prevent a recurrence of the conflict.
