Abstract

This paper investigates the possibility of transforming information distribution from printed to SMS based media on the implementation of EIA Public Announcement in Indonesia. Based on Indonesian Ministry of Environment Regulation, the implementation of Public Announcement requires project initiator to announce the information via Newspaper and Physical Notice Board. Expert interviews and questionnaires were conducted to extract the information from practitioner and citizens and a total of 106 respondents were collected. Analyzed results reveal that SMS based as information media is preferred, which supports the idea to implement SMS Gateway as a sustainable media to minimize the paper consumptions.
