This article presents a case study of a youth oriented-environmental NGO, Koalisi Pemuda Hijau Indonesia (KOPHI), which has experienced rapid growth in recent years in Indonesia. As a network organization, KOPHI has been able to accommodate youth in many cities throughout Indonesia, especially in prompting university students to get involved in numerous environmental actions. Its main activity is environmental conservation that is able to involve children, youth and communities in a number of cities. In contrast to established environmental NGOs, KOPHI has also been able to develop a mechanism for self-financing, so that it is not dependent on foreign aid agencies. The capacity of KOPHI in implementing the three dimensions of the strategic triangle (value creation, support & legitimacy, and operational capacity) is a key to the success in the sustainable growth of the organization and in its role in conserving the environment in Indonesia.
