The role of society in preserving the culture

As good citizens, of course, we must take part in maintaining our culture to prevent extinction. In maintaining and preserving the local culture in the community, it can be done in various ways. Some ways that can be done by a member of the community, especially us as a young generation in supporting the preservation of culture and participating in maintaining local culture include:

  1. Want to learn the culture, whether it’s just to know or can also participate in practising it in our lives.
  2. Participate if there are activities in the context of cultural preservation, for example:
    Participate in competitions about cultures, such as traditional dance or regional theatre.
    Participate in traditional cultural performances at certain events or activities, such as when celebrating the anniversary of national independence, holding a local performance that smells of struggle, and others.
  3. Teaching that culture to the next generation so that culture is not destroyed and can still survive.
  4. Love your own culture without degrading and harassing other people’s culture.
  5. Practicing the use of that culture in everyday life, for example, language culture.
  6. Eliminating feelings of prestige or embarrassment with the culture we have.
  7. Avoiding primordialism and ethnocentrism

Such are some ways we can do in the process of cultural preservation. It is hoped that all of our awareness as the next generation can still maintain and preserve culture. Do you have other ideas about how to promote and preserve our culture?

How can we prevent cultural heritage extinction?

I wrote this post while in Sydney Australia, with several teachers for training. I and my two friends are very helped by the ridesharing service in this city since in the Sydney suburb it is quite difficult to get public transport. If you want to know more about Ridesharing in Australia you can go to Rideshare AU NZ.

OK back to topic. Actually, there are several ways we can do it. What are they?

Self-Awareness in Maintaining Culture

To keep our culture sustainable, the first is from our own awareness and our own will and love of our homeland. As some of the responses above, we must first see how conscious we will love our homeland.

How can it be if not with our own awareness we can maintain the preservation of our culture, because there may be some people who say that we must maintain the preservation of our culture but in fact, it has not done so?

Some ways to prevent cultural heritage extinction

Along with the times, the generations of the nation have begun to forget and leave these very rich cultures. Globalization also has a strong influence in reducing the level of public concern in maintaining or preserving our culture.

There are four important ways that can be done to preserve our culture:

  1. Get to know the culture
    Finding out about our origin culture
    Follow activities or communities about cultures, such as traditional dance, traditional sports, and others.
  2. Teach culture to others
    Teaching around the environment by introducing how beautiful and rich our culture is
  3. Introducing culture abroad
    Post local art activities on social media
    Use local products
    Exporting goods produced by local cultural arts
  4. Not affected by foreign culture
    Make culture your identity
    Choosing and sorting out foreign cultures that have a positive impact on local culture
  5. Learning
    No need to cover yourself from outside culture. Learn about their culture, take positivity, implement it in our culture.
  6. Proud and use our cultural products
    It’s useless if the young people become fierce on social media when our culture is claimed by neighbouring countries but still lazy to study it for fear of being ridiculed.
    The change in mindset begins to become a pioneer for our own cultural products. We can start by using authentic products from local productions, as well as eats original culinary recipes.

Those are the ways of how can we prevent cultural heritage extinction.
