This abstract has open access
Abstract Summary
With nearly 55 percent of Indonesia’s population or nearly 148 million people lives in cities today whose urbanization growth rate lagging other countries in the region, that are China, Thailand, and Vietnam (World Bank, 2018), Indonesian cities are prime sources of pollution, congestion, vulnerable to climate risk, and both physically and mentally health problem. All which generate degradation of human well-being. However, urbanization growth is not followed by putting people on the top priority of urban development which one of evidence is the scarcity of nature on urban space. Whereas, human needs oxygen dan public space as organism and social beings, respectively. Related on urban development, the existence of open green space which covered both biological and social human needs should be on main concern. Despite one of the recent favorable policy in Indonesian cities is constructing city park as attempt on fulfilling minimum 30% of total city wide area to green space mandatory on Spatial Planning National Regulation (UU No. 26/2007), those physically spasial built is not aligned with the culture building yet, where Indonesian people are commonly lack of public space culture. Park as category of green space for Indonesian people is seems with negative notion, such as dark, vandalism, criminalize, sexual harassment, drug transaction, and young spouse share love intimately that discourage people utilization. Yet, on the other hand, in terms of social well-being, green space also has potential in reducing negative social behaviour, with fostering social cohesion and social identity (Dempsey, Brown & Bramley, 2012). Any physical built of green space may be threaten by its culture. Ayo ke Taman (Indonesian language of “Let’s go to Urban Park”) platform (on ayoketaman.com) was initiated to encourage citizen activation on making the urban park more attractive to fulfill biological and social needs. Ayo ke Taman utilizes both online and offline coverage. Ayoketaman.com is open public space digital mapping based on crowd-courcing data which include public facilities availability description, enable rating about park condition (on cleanliness, shadiness, accessibility, comfort, and safety), as well as any input or comment from park user to be addressed by local government. As movement, Ayo ke Taman organizes regularly community activity on certain open public space as well as embracing pre-and-post activity on social media as raising awareness that as many good activities should be activated on every open public space in the city. As platform, Ayo ke Taman aims to reveal characters of green space that could fulfill people needs. Acknowledging the importance of people’s preference of nature and social interaction space’s setting is crucial to improve park as functional space as well as improving human well-being. Eventually, the good green space development is not only accomplished by only physical construction but acknowledging people’s preference on public space that could utilize digital connectivity as most urban people are digital savvy.
