Calling in Volunteers for Bali Support! Last week, we presented this project to the board of Bali NGO’s and got full approval to move forward! The site has officially launched: Balisupport.org. Now is the time to come together to truly make this move towards supporting the entire network of Bali’s Ecological, Humanitarian, and Immediate Relief projects as we launch the island’s first collaborative, centralized fundraising platform!
Pulau Plastik (Plastic Island) is a collaborative campaign to tackle the issue of single-use plastic in Bali and beyond. Pulau Plastik leverages popular culture and includes social media campaigns, short videos, and a feature-length documentary to increase awareness about the hazards of single-use plastic, to change people’s behavior and to advocate for change. The Indonesian government targets to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the ocean by 70% in the next five years. Various preventive measures and countermeasures have been carried out at the local level, such as last year’s ban on single-use products by the Bali provincial government. How can Bali take part in achieving this mission? Let’s talk potential solutions, sharing ideas and knowledge at this screening of two Pulau Plastik episodes

West Bali is Bali’s best-kept secret. It is a quiet, rural area nestled between the mountains and the sea. Its terrain includes secluded black sand beaches, luscious green rice terraces, and dense jungles. We will reconnect with Mother nature and learn about daily life from local Balinese fishermen, farmers, artists, children, and entrepreneurs. Be part of this fun and exciting excursion to beautiful West Bali. Five Pillar Foundation is excited to offer the following adventures with food, transport, and lodging accommodations included. You will be led by a team of local Balinese youth that works to protect and preserve their culture and environment. Learn about Five Pillar Foundation’s model for sustainable development, meet the local community, and observe daily life in the peaceful remote western part of Bali!

As a visitor in Bali you have power to contribute to helping the community – it all starts with you!
Indonesia’s unique nature is in conflict with the world’s hunger for resources and domestic economy driven by a growing population of 260 million. Including 85 million children that are lacking environmental education. Green-Books.org is tackling the environmental crisis in innovative ways by combining: eco-education for kids, training local educators and the promotion of eco-friendly products.
A Year have passed since Merah Putih Hijau (MPH) kicked off in Desa Pererenan. After 40 years of unsuccessful private owned waste management the group behind MPH is asking themselves what can be done differently. MPH has partnered with the village of Pererenan and built a functioning material management facility. The core message is that everybody has to play their part and everyone needs to separate their waste at source to build a functioning system. To make progress, the assets have been made community owned and the processes behind the collection and weighing system are meant to be as transparent as possible. Therefore, the next step for us is continue building a funding platform and to continue building a mobile application that will serve as a bridge for communication.
We are the generation of social impact makers! But do you know how to put those ideals into action here in Bali and around the world? Do you have your own ideas you would like to share with our community? Come spend an evening with us to make fellow socially-conscious friends who would like to join our impact community. Join the movement to you learn and share ideas to help grow our collective social impact here in Bali and abroad. Help us, help you, help the world!
