Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the world’s best plans to build a better  world for humans and our planet up to 2030. Adopted by all UN member countries in 2015, SDGs are an invitation from all countries – poor, rich and middle income – to promote prosperities as well as conserving the environment. They admit that abolishing poverty must go in line with strategies that build the economic growth and solve various social needs including education, health, equality and employment, and tackling climate change and working to conserve the sea and forests.

In the current globalization era, there are many ecological crises that arise due to disturbed natural balance. Unconsciously, our actions and attitudes have damaged ecology. Inappropriate use of technology is one of which that can disrupt the balance of nature such as climate change, the crisis of clean water, air pollution, and various other ecological crises that conflict with the SDGs.

Local wisdom is the ideas, values or views from a place with good wisdom and values that are followed and trusted by the community in that place and it has been followed for generations. Local wisdom is closely related to the management of natural resources and the environment. However, over the times the position of local wisdom is increasingly marginalized. Today, local wisdom faces challenges, including increasingly rapid technological developments followed by the adoption of excessive technology without maintaining the local knowledge. The excessive use of technology can damage the balance of nature and the environment. Many people do not realize the essence of local wisdom and abandon the habits that have been built for a long time by their ancestors.

The activities to inherit local wisdom to the next generation in order to manage the natural resources and environment have faded and even abandoned. In fact, local wisdom contributes to manage natural resources and the environment. Local wisdom cannot also be separated from challenges such as: increasing population, modern technology and culture, large capital as well as poverty and inequality. The prospect of local wisdom in the future is strongly influenced by the community knowledge, technological innovations, market demands, utilization and the conservation of biodiversity in the environment, and also various government policies that are directly related to the management of natural resources and the environment and the role of local communities.

Globalization which then triggered the Industrial Revolution 4.0 brought significant changes to the process of maintenance, development, improvement in the environment, economy, technology, health, education, and social affairs in the international community. The digital revolution and the technological disruption era are the other terms of industry 4.0. It is called the digital revolution because of the proliferation of computers and the automation of records in all fields. The Industry 4.0 is said to be an era of technological disruption because automation and connectivity in a field will make the movement of the industrial world and work competition becomes not linear.

One of the unique characteristics of industry 4.0 is the application of artificial intelligence. One form of the application is the use of robots to replace human power so that it is cheaper, more effective and efficient. The challenges of industry 4.0 can be simplified as; (1) industry readiness; (2) trusted workforce; (3) ease of socio-cultural arrangements; and (4) diversification and job creation. In the other hand, the industry 4.0 opportunities are namely; (1) ecosystem innovation; (2) competitive industrial base; (3) investment in technology; and (4) integration of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurship. The social and culture are some of the big challenges in the Industrial Revolution 4.0. Thus, local wisdom is needed to balance the social and cultural challenges in harmonizing SDGs with the Industrial Revolution 4.0,.
