BLOCK 3: SHIFTING MINDSET
Transforming Slum into Rainbow,
Kampung Warna-warni Jodipan
Tarranita Kusumadewi, MT
Malang University, Indonesia
The village of Kampung Warna-Warni (Indonesian for “Village of Color”) was once drab and polluted, lacking the economic resources required to build a healthy community. But eight event management students from a nearby university lent a helping hand by applying their class skills to the real world.
Although it may seem like the paint job would benefit visitors more than those actually living in the village, the makeover has revitalized the community. The beautiful colors improved the village’s standard of living by drawing in new tourist dollars, and the beauty of the colorful houses has inspired many community members to improve the sanitation of their river.

Slum, Migrants & the Homeless
in the City
Uta Dietrich & Aish Kumar
Think City is an urban regeneration think-and-do tank with a track record of developing innovative solutions based on data and community engagement. Operating in downtown Kuala Lumpur since 2015, there are few projects where businesses and residents raise the issue of homelessness.
As a result, Think City has undertaken collaborative research and engaged many NGOs and government organisations to identify new ways forward. Numbers at the annual count by DBKL change from year to year, but around 1,000 homeless people in 15 hotspots signal a rise in human insecurity. Their needs and welfare deserve to be considered alongside others as we work towards regenerating Malaysia’s inner cities.

Living a Zero Waste Lifestyle
As our city grows, is it necessary for Mother Nature to bear the brunt of pollution, excessive waste and a lack of green spaces in the name of urbanisation?
The force behind Malaysian bulk organic store, The Hive, started to go #zerowaste in 2010 when she had her first child in Hong Kong. Claire Sancelot's Zero Waste Hong Kong blog ignited an eco-movement in the city, and when she moved to Malaysia in 2015, she got the ball rolling with her cause. A lack of affordable organic food and excessive single-use plastic packaging led her to start a mini, package-free co-op in Bangsar. Claire's efforts earned her a 2017 United Nations award, and now, she's in the midst of expanding in KL.

Creating Cycling Super Highway
A bike freeway, also known as a cycling superhighway, fast cycle route or bicycle highway is meant for long-distance traffic. The characteristics of a cycle motorway mentioned by authorities and traffic experts include an absence of single-level intersections with motorized traffic, a better road surface (preferably asphalt or concrete) and the absence of traffic lights. Bicycle highways are mentioned in connection with traffic jam. Due to higher average speeds than normal cycling infrastructure, they should be an alternative for the car in commuter traffic. Often a cycle motorway follows the route of a railway.

70 by 30
A Greener and Better KL
Pn. Nik Mastura Diyana Nik Mohamad
City Planning Department, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL)
In transforming Kuala Lumpur towards achieving 70 by 30: A Greener and Better City by 2030, a clear sustainable and climate-responsive growth vision is crucial to frame and direct KLCH’s commitment to becoming a leading city in combating climate change while simultaneously improving the city’s economic, social and environmental performances.
As Kuala Lumpur is envisioned to become a World Class Sustainable City by 2030, it needs to play a major global and sub-global role in tackling climate change and protecting the environment while benefiting all its residents, workers, visitors and investors socially and economically.
70 by 30 expresses Kuala Lumpur’s aspiration to reduce the city’s carbon emission intensity of GDP by up to 70% by 2030, which crucially supports Malaysia’s renewed national carbon emission intensity reduction target of 45% by 2030.
