This chapter explores the efforts of activists, architects, middle-class residents, as well as municipal officers of Jakarta to provide more open green spaces for the city. In particular, it discusses the “Clean and Green Jakarta” campaign, which aimed to plant a thousand trees in Jakarta's largest and most biodiverse green area. The project was powered by 300 volunteers and supported by citizen and business groups such as: Jakarta Green Radio the daily Bisnis Indonesia, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Hence, the campaign could be seen as an example of governmentality in postauthoritarian Indonesia, which implicates the desires of both citizen groups and the state (in the figure of the city governor) for a transformation of Jakarta.
