HISTORY and ECOTON PROFILE

ECOTON was established in 1996 as a Biology Study Program wetland conservation group in UNAIR and was incorporated in 2000, due to a sense of concern for environmental problems in East Java, especially in Surabaya River. Lots of river pollution that looks real but there is no action. Therefore ECOTON is present to restore the river environment so that it is not more polluted.

ECOTON VISSION

REALIZATION OF BIODIVERSITY SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL FUNCTIONS FOR HUMANS, THROUGH EQUITABLE AND PARTICIPATORY RIVER ECOSYSTEM AND WETLAND MANAGEMENT.

ECOTON believes that changes in river management that are equitable between generations will only be achieved by involving community participation as the spearhead of change. Communities must get information and a fair portion to be able to be involved in managing air resources. To encourage public participation, ECOTON produces information related to the potential and resources of river ecosystems and resources. This information was born from studies, research, exploration of data conducted by ECOTON with professional researchers.

The establishment of an information system with an important role in mass media such as newspapers, radio, television, magazines, and online media will make people aware of the current conditions of water resources management, in turn ECOTON encourages communities to form communities that play an active role in supervision and planning, and become part of important from the management of water sources.

Children are an important part of changes in fair river management between generations because ECOTON believes children are victims of river environmental damage caused by behavior and policy alignments on the exploitation of destructive water resources and seizing the rights of future generations. Children can make changes so children need to be aware of knowledge about river management injustices. Children must be involved to be more responsible and participate in the management of water resources.
