“Jakarta is crazy,” said Ahmad Rifai, executive director of Solo Kota Kita, an organization in Surakarta that encourages residents to interact with local officials on city planning. “We need more than just one person to change it.”

Congrats to the SoloKotaKita team on running a successful model for citizen interaction in Indonesia.
