Local wisdom-based learning model is motivated by global environmental crisis. Local wisdom has proven its significance in achieving a harmonious relationship between human and nature. This research aims to identify the impact of local wisdom-based learning on students’ understanding on the land ethic. This study is conducted using the experimental method with factorial designs. Subjects involved in this study are Grade XI social students, composed of three experimental groups. The research variables are local wisdom-based learning model as the free variable and the land ethic understanding as the bound variable. The research instruments consist of observation, assignments, tests, and performances. The data are analyzed statistically. The results show (1) there is a difference of the land ethic understanding between before and after applying local wisdom-based learning on experimental group 1, 2, and 3; and (2) there is no significant change on the land ethic understanding between experimental group 1, 2, and 3. It is implied that local wisdom-based learning influences the land ethic comprehension.
