Did you know...


  • 20% of Denpasar’s solid waste is dumped in makeshift landfills, into canals or left in the streets

  • Bali scored only 57 out of 100 for environmental sustainability by The National Geographic Traveler magazine

  • On Bali, 400 hectares per year of agricultural land is being converted into dwellings, businesses or tourism facilities, threatening the island's food security

  • Already 20% or 86 km of Bali’s 430 km long coast line is seriously eroded

  • The traditional Balinese calendar (that has been giving Balinese guidance about when is the best time to plant and harvest for many generations) is no longer relevant because of climate change?


These challenges have a dramatic and profound impact on our lives, whether we like it or not. A fresh approach to business, and community development is needed to ensure viability and prosperity in the years ahead; this is not only smart thinking but also an essential necessity for those who can read the signs of the times.
