Based on the results we concluded that: In order to improve the ASEAN community, in the global context, a citizen has an important role to be a good citizen who can participate in implementing public policy. Character education, one of government policies, needs to be applied. Along with the grand design of the implementation of character education, it is not only done within the family but also in the community and education units. In units of education, especially in schools, character education forms an expectation and a challenge to be able to be applied effectively as one pillar and supporter of the ASEAN community in line with the principles of global citizenship.
