economy in the Ramang-Ramang Tourism Village, Maros district, South Sulawesi. The
existence of a tourist object has an impact on people's lives in the area of the tourist object.
Both from an environmental, economic, and cultural point of view. Ecotourism is a special
interest tourism concept that combines tourism and environmental preservation as well as
community economic empowerment. This research was conducted using a qualitative
approach with a case study research design with a unit of analysis of Creative Economy Actors
in the Ramang-Ramang Tourism Village, Maros Regency, South Sulawesi. The technique that

that are run in the Ramang-Ramang tourist village, namely, Culinary, Kraft and Performing
Arts. These three sub-sectors have experienced a lot of development and have become one
of the pillars that support the existence of the Ramang-Ramang tourism village. Apart from
encouraging the economic welfare of the community, the green economy concept applied in
the Ramang-Ramang tourist village is also an effort to preserve the environment.
