The subdistrict of Koja, North Jakarta is one of the settlement areas which is densely populated. The high-density level leads to poor environmental quality, especially in terms of cleanliness and sanitation that finally disturb residents' health, such as suffering dengue fever in early 2019. The method of writing used in this study was based on a community empowerment program that focuses on social interventions, in the form of increasing the capacity of citizens in maintaining environmental hygiene and sanitation. The aim of this program was to form an independent community that is aware of the importance of maintaining cleanliness and environmental sanitation. Social interventions are actions that carried out by a person or group of intervening people with efforts to cause change. The stages that have to be done in the empowerment process are the Stage of Awareness and Formation of Behaviour, the Stage of Transformation and the Stage of Intellectual Ability Upgrading. The results of those stages can slowly provide a forum for the implementation of some materials in the previous workshop, so that they can directly apply it to create a Clean and Green environment in urban areas.
