The G20 Bamboo Forest: Part of the Future SMEs Village.


A bike made especially for the G20 and embodying the best of Indonesia in all forms, from sustainable materials, to community empowerment, and cross-sectoral and provincial collaboration. A true example of Gotong Royong, from Indonesia to the world.

Our sustainable future lies in landscape restoration

Nearly 24 million hectares of Indonesia’s forests have been degraded. Meanwhile, about 35% of villages are located in forest fringe areas, where communities are dependent upon natural resources. We have a plan to change that.

We believe in education and inclusive economic growth to be the main catalysts in climate change mitigation. Through decades of work in bamboo and agroforestry systems, we are now on our way to a global Restoration Economy program, designed to reforest degraded lands and turn them into sustainable resources for our community and our planet.
