Abstract
Various social phenomenon that have occurred in recent years in Indonesia are getting worst. Solving problems through violence seems to be common. Crime, juvenile delinquency, corruption, pornography, and drug abuse displayed through various media, and there are still many other social phenomena that need serious handling. This happened because this country is in a character crisis. Education has an important role to solve this problem. The aim of this paper is to explore the implementation of an environment-based educational model in School of Alam Raya Muaro Jambi (SARAMUJA), which is believed as one of the contribution to overcome the character crisis. This research used a qualitative explanative approach. The data collection techniques used was observation and in-depth interviews. Furthermore, the data analysis technique used was qualitative descriptive technique. The research concludes that SARAMUJA is an environment-based informal education model that focuses on building students' character. In the design, SARAMUJA made everyone as a teacher, and the universe as a school. Honesty, tolerance, creative, independent, caring for the environment, social care, and other characters are instilled using a very interesting method. By utilizing the environment, students are faced on and involved in various social realities, so that it will facilitate the process of character building within them.
