Abstract

The increase of urban population is closely interconnected to the demand for living spaces that accommodate various urban activities. When the balance between the need for, and the availability of such spaces is disturbed, unlivable spaces are generated which would eventually downgrade the quality of urban environment. Bearing in mind the increasing clamor over global warming during the last two decades, urban planners should carefully anticipate the issue and put their focus on, and even provoke the creation of sustainable green space development, including the creation of open green urban spaces. Accommodating the aspirations and participation of citizens, through the application of the development principle based on "from, by and for them", becomes a most import ant part of the strategy to achieve sustainable development patterns. The worsening environmental deterioration due to the stakeholders becoming unheedful about the issue should be taken into serious consideration. In the study, observations have been conducted in a descriptive manner by using a non randomized experimental design using control at three neighborhoods in West Jakarta, with one of them being the controller. It showed that after the first 6 months, the application of green environment approach in the neighborhoods was maintained through self-help and communal actions. Community organizations that have been established on the spirit of mutual cooperation becomes determinative for the success of such sustainable pattern; the sustainability would in phases also improve the people's economy and their social interaction. The involvement of local governments, the private sector and the community would also greatly influence the creation of sustainable green development pattern, and should continuously be evaluated and improved for replications in other locations in an ever perfect process.
