This research examines how the implementation of Civic Education in Indonesia shapes environmentally conscious students. With a large population and expansive territory, the potential environmental issues in Indonesia are increasing. Education becomes one solution to address and prevent potential environmental damage that may arise in the future. This research relies on semi-structured interviews with 25 Civic Education teachers and field visits to 14 Madiun, East Java, Indonesia schools. Employing ecological citizenship theory and content analysis, interview data were scrutinized using an interpretative methodology. The results of the interviews indicate that teachers express commitment to shaping environmentally aware students. This commitment includes selecting teaching methods, assignments (such as the Pancasila Student Profile Strengthening Project and structured assignments in the Adiwiyata School program), and bringing in various environmental activists to inspire students. These practices form communities among students and enable them to advocate for environmental rights for themselves and others. Based on this analysis, I propose the term "Green Civic Education" to help us better understand various civic education forms oriented toward environmental sustainability.
