A film by Ecological Observation and Wetlands Conservation (Indonesia)
Running Time: 36:57
Communities in Central Java are battling against giants – manufacturing corporations that are polluting the air and water. Within a hundred meters away from the plants are residential areas which are affected by decreased air quality and even leaks in the rice fields, affecting their daily lives and their livelihood. In this episode, the expedition explores the struggle of the communities in their fight for better living and working environmental conditions.
Ecological Observation and Wetlands Conservation (ECOTON) began as a Biology Study Program in 1996. Due to a sense of concern for the environmental issues in East Java, particularly in Kali Surabaya, ECOTON was fully incorporated as a non-profit and non-government organization aimed at raising awareness on the increasing level of waste pollution in East Java’s rivers.
