This idea also arose over concern for global warming or improvement of environmental quality in the world. Area of alternative development movement Back In Touch Ecotourism Bukit Lawang currently experiencing a lot of controversy, one of the debates that have not been equally understandable is the "old paradigm that says every suatau economic development of forest area will cause environmental damage”. True, but the effect was applies only for a moment and not much to bigitu environmental damage itself.
That view of the future that we must understand is that when a moment of economic thinking patterns of forest edge communities from tourism to farming communities, or sellers of wood, we can imagine, let alone forests, national parks itself is slowly going out as the cause of the continued insistence Economy twisting. And we will continue to explain in one sentence is important as the philosophical basis and so we need to understand with "how could people want to preserve the forest edge of the forest, if they do not eat from the forest itself!", Then how do I prevent economic paradigm change in the community forest pingiran is only one way "of development ekomomi-based ecotourism attraction utilization, environmental educatoin with adequate facilities". We realize that this earth of ours together and have both our duty, to realize the goal of this program we expect only one way to increase visitor tourism Ecotourism Touch Back In Bukit Lawang, this is where our collective contributions and to understand the forest and forest preserve.
