Abstract

The condition of most rivers in Indonesia has been contaminated, including in Surakarta, Indonesia, due to uncontrolled rubbish and liquid waste disposal. Kampungnesia is one of young communities caring about the damaged condition of river and attempts to encourage the change through social urban youth movement. This article aimed to explain how the social movement is motivated by Kampungnesia to realize the environment-oriented river management. The theory used was resource mobilization one. The research method employed was action research oriented to the real changing process. Kampungnesia social movement was conducted to reproduce the citizens’ knowledge in the villages bordering directly on river with transect technique and conducting focus group discussion to document their knowledge about river, kampong (village) and city. Kampungnesia expanded the public support through publication in the form of documentary movies, profile book of kampong and river, and module with tagline memetri kali (mantain river). Publication through social media such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and twitter is also conducted to make the knowledge on river and village the collective knowledge, to invite the stakeholders, including executive, legislative, and citizens surrounding river to develop collective agenda about an environment-river management. Capacity reinforcement, education, and workshop of stakeholders were conducted as the form of action to improve the community behavior about river.
