Kemambang Village is located in Banyubiru district, Semarang Regency, Ambarawa, with natural potential (natural scenery, dispensary plantations, coffee plantations, and so on); culinary potential (Kumambang mas coffee, Jamu, Gula Ant, and so on); and cultural potential (Rodat dance, Keprajurita dance, Merti Desa, and so on). Kemambang shows that the potential of villages is very diverse, but villages have not been able to optimize the potential of existing resources due to lack of knowledge of Human Resources (HR) and infrastructure. This study aims to determine the interaction of the kemambang village community in developing tourist villages. The theory used in this study is ecological communication popularized by Luhman (1989). Luhman uses the concept of "resonance" in describing the interaction between the system and the social environment. A context that experiences the complexity of ecological problems can create communication problems, on the contrary, these problems can be overcome with solutions offered simultaneously.

The results showed that cooperation between various parties that form the ecology of tourism development in Kemambang village is important to carry out. Karang Taruna still needs cooperation with the village government as the person in charge of the existing programs by conducting two-way communication. The dialogue between the two parties aims to advance tourist village destinations.
