The large potential for natural beauty in Buwun Mas Village is an advantage that must be developed to increase community income and welfare. The development of tourist villages is also a positive alternative to shift people's dependence on gold mining activities without permits which damage the environment and endanger health. In efforts to develop tourist villages, tourism drivers are needed from among the village community itself. The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) calls them "local champions". The existence of local champions in tourism village development is central because of their role as agents of change as well as triggers for community participation in tourism development. The aim of this community service activity is to help the Village Government and Pokdarwis of Buwun Mas Village to stimulate the emergence of local champions who have the knowledge, skills and positive attitudes to develop tourism potential in Buwun Mas Village.
