Puppet is one of the local wealth of the Indonesian people that we must preserve in addition to many other types of wealth. Puppet is also a means for Islam as a new religion that entered the archipelago at that time. The characters possessed by hundreds of figures in it make wayang as one of the educational media for the people of Indonesia since ancient times. This positive character wealth is often conveyed to many groups, especially the young generation of Indonesia. There have been many efforts made for sharing the virtues of the moral values ​​of the local wealth, including open discussion and puppet watching activities with several competent speakers. They have special attention regarding the character development activities of the young generation of Indonesia facing the current modern era. It is hoped that from this activity, the young age will make puppets with robust and highly dedicated characters as a source of inspiration to grow into a quality generation capable of competing in the global era. No matter how complex the development of the times, it is hoped that Indonesia's young age will remain a cultured and powerful generation, as strong as puppet characters who have strong principles in undergoing global change.
