History of Establishment
The Mangkubumi Environmental Education Center or called PPLH Mangkubumi is an environmental organization, which is independent and non-profit and does not have any affiliation with political parties. PPLH Mangkubumi is a forum for civil society groups consisting of non-governmental organizations, nature lovers groups and non-governmental organizations which was established in Tulungagung Regency, East Java Province on August 8, 2006 as a reaction and concern over the decreasing environmental carrying capacity of natural resource management: forests. , water, rivers and sources of life, as a result of a development paradigm and process that does not side with sustainability and neglects the environment. PPLH Mangkubumi is aware that the tendency of environmental damage is getting more massive and complex both in rural and urban areas. Deteriorating environmental conditions are openly recognized as affecting the socio-political and social dynamics of the economic community at the community, regional and national levels.
In turn, the environmental crisis directly threatens security and increases the vulnerability of every citizen's life. Environmental damage has been present in our homes, such as water and air pollution, floods and droughts, as well as increasingly expensive energy. Who is responsible for environmental damage is increasingly difficult to ascertain because the causes themselves are intertwined both between sectors, between actors, between institutions, between regions and even between countries. To ensure the sustainability of the lives of future generations, a strong and widespread social movement is needed. Future generations have the right to a good and healthy environment. For this reason, the current generation is responsible for maintaining and improving the quality of a better environment.
