        Code River or Kali Code is one of the great rivers that divide the city of Yogyakarta. We found that the community in the Code riverside needs something that can improve their welfare significantly. We try to figure out something that combines some potential resources like fish conservation, waste-free area of Kali Code, unique architecture, and English speaking people. We come up with the suggestion of a Service-Learning (S-L) program to create a fishing river. The aim of this S-L program is to have a multidisciplinary and multicultural approach to improve the Kali Code community’s welfare through environmental natural resources utilization. Internal coordination is important to organize all S-L participants while we begin to survey Kali Code. There will be a step-by-step method that involves participants that are expert in their field, so the participants (community, local government, university students, foundation, and NGO) can focus and be responsible for each section but still support the others. In this S-L program, the involvement of the community is the main priority and the sustainability of this program is important. There are nine steps to make this fishing river into reality: survey, licensing agreement, legal establishment, fishing river construction, fingerlings and material provision, infrastructure development, branding and promotion, guide service coordination, and sustainable development. The main problems of this S-L program are how to consolidate and share the profit wisely. Basically, the community should realize that this S-L program aims for everyone’s prosperity, not just for individual benefit. That is why creating a legal establishment is very important. We believe that this fishing river will impact the community’s welfare. Moreover, the Kali Code community must keep their environment clean. In the future, this S-L program can carry on to other communities and involve local and overseas university students and lecturers. Hopefully, by creating a fishing river, Kali Code can be better known nationally and even internationally, and the community can improve their quality of life
