Learning The Green Openspaces Management from Singapore

Oftenly we heard, that world development focussed on sustainable development with environmentally vision. Sustainable development of a city , nowdays well - known as eco city where city designed with consideration of environmental impact, inhabited by people dedicated to minimization of required inputs of energy, water and food, and waste output of heat, air and water pollution.

One concept that support the goal  is to hold Green Openspaces movement proportionally. Definitivelly the concept of Green   Openspaces is a region or area of the land that dominated by plants which built for specific function as habitat protection in a city, the network infrastructure, safeguards and agricultural cultivation in addition to improve the quality of the atmosphere, water and land to support sustainability of development. Green Openspaces in the midst of the urban ecosystem also serves to improve the quality of city landscape.

A number of acreage in urban areas in recent decades, where public spaces have been eliminated due to building developments which are likely to be pattern as container ( container development) which development entirelly  accomodate a wide range of socioeconomic activity such as Malls, Offices, Hotels etc that potentially creating a gap between different walks of life. Only certain people on middle class category supported by those places.

The ideal Green Openspaces is about 30% of the total area. But unfortunately most of large cities in Indonesia only reached 10% of city area. In fact Green Openspaces necessary for health, child's play ground, sport area and public communication.  The design has to be fit with national standard or existing standards.

Build The Indonesian Future with Good Sanitation

Ones that made Indonesia famous in the eyes of the world is a about sanitary system. It might seem a bit cynical because of the popularity is well-known in how bad sanitary conditions in Indonesia. The world record that Indonesia remains in ranked fifth worst sanitation worldwide. What a poor portrait of Indonesia's sanitation is.

Water supply and sanitation in Indonesia is characterized by poor levels of access and service quality. Over 100 million people in Indonesia lack access to safe water and more than 70 percent of the country’s 220 million population relies on water obtained from potentially contaminated sources. With only 2% access to sewerage in urban areas is one of the lowest in the world among middle-income countries. Pollution is widespread on Bali and Java. Women in Jakarta report spending US$ 11 per month on boiling water, implying a significant burden for the poor.

Keep Your Hands Writing

Great authors usually try to vent the expression to be able to find its distinctive strengths. Himself willing to compromise on a common standard the world of writing, considering the interest of readers to produce work that is clear, explorative, and strong.
( Anwar Holid, from books "Keep Your Hand Moving")

Have you ever felt that seemed your hands don't want to stop writing? When the ideas comes across your head, seem it doesn't want to be stopped. It flow like a river. But sometimes it locked when you need the open mind to spread out the ideas. That is what mostly writters do. When desire of writing come, you can not handle it, can not stop it.
