Abstract

The City of Makassar, South Sulawesi, has to experience environmental problems as a result of urbanization and physical development of the city. The ecological functions of the city are decreasing as a result of increasingly extensive urban infrastructure, that is why Environmental education system can be an alternative to improve the balance of the urban environment and social-economic of urban communities. This study aims at analyzing the ecological and economic sustainability level as well as to determine the factors sensitive determinant of sustainability of environmental education programs in the city of Makassar. This research uses MDS method called Rap-Edu-Enviro to analyze the index and sustainability status of environmental education programs. Data collected from an interview with relevant experts and stakeholders. The results of the multidimensional analysis show that sustainability index value of environmental education programs is 48.52% which is less sustainable status, but partially the index value of ecologic and economic dimensions respectively 42.66 % with a status less sustainable and 50.69% with a reasonably sustainable status. The leverage analysis of attributes the ecological dimension shows the sensitive attributes were the condition of land use sanitation, organic waste treatment, and the dominant plant species used in environmental education programs. Attributes of the economic dimension consist of seven sensitive attributes. Analysis of Rap-Edu-Environ showed an appropriate and valid (R2 > 0.90 and S < 0.25) to evaluate the level of sustainability of environmental education programs in the city of Makassar.
