Analysis of Meaningful Community Participation in Environmental Sustainability


Indonesia has declared that obtaining a good and healthy environment is part of its constitution and human rights. Moreover, the policies governing public participation in creating the environmental policies supporting this assertion, should be considered. This study aims to analyze meaningful community participation in environmental sustainability. The results show that community participation in protecting a good and healthy environment often encounters resistance from business actors whose business activities are suspected to cause environmental pollution or damage. The actions of business actors who report to the police or sue affected communities and environmental rights fighters or activists, carrying out community participation in the form of conveying information, complaints, and objections through media or demonstrations are intended by the plaintiff or the reporting party to remain silent and stop participation.
