ACT-4: Collaborate!!

I'm the "collaborationist".

Following my enthusiast supports to Unilever Indonesia's CSR team who had led Surabaya getting a cleaner water by now after their successful Surabaya Green and Clean Project, I spread the word everywhere. Writing about them couple of times in this Evoke network is just one small part of those actions.

I was a student journalists during my university years. In 2005, after Unilever Indonesia won the Energy Globe Award 2005, I…

LEARN-4: Epique Collaboration worth Energy Globe 2005

I myself is a witness of this amazing evidence of how collaboration of passion make things happen. Surabaya, is a major city in Indonesia. It's 3 million inhabitants produces almost 9,000 m³ garbage per day, 80% of it is transported to a landfill and the remaining 20% are scattered mainly into the river Brantas. Water supply has become a big…

IMAGINE-3: A birthday wish for Bastian

April 22nd, 2020

It's a special day. Not only because its a birthday of my son, it is also an Earth Day.

So here we are, camping in Kaliurang highland of Jogjakarta, fully furnished.

Yes, fully furnished because windmill is everywhere in this mountainous area and in our tents we have all modern convenience: laptops on, coffeemaker on, and getting the electricity flow through our tents as easy as plugging in our power cable to power slot…

ACT-3: Market Gap

Due to my limited knowledge on sustainable energy, I dont have much to offer as evidence. I believe this is the challenge of sustainable energy: it is not easily available in the market. I do think on alternative electricity source as the cost of my apartment's electricity in Bangkok is expensive, not to mention that its also generating million of GHG if it comes from coal/petroleoum based electric generator.

I imagine myself having my own solar panel installed in the window…

LEARN-3: Bastiaan Teune

I'm not expert on sustainable energy, so I'll try to write from my limited knowledge on one of biogas hero whose work in Vietnam was once published in Thailand's media. Biogas is an untapped rich sources of renewable energy that Thailand had also explores as one of their focus for an alternative energy search.

Not only it is put "recycle" in it most practical application -- as any organic waste digestible by anaerob bacteria, can be converted to energy with biogas…

IMAGINE-2: Nayakrishi Dinner

It's March 10, 2020.

I'm sitting with my family for dinner in "Rumah Jawa", one of the most famous restaurant in town.

This restaurant has been certified by Association of Sustainable Foods -- World-bank sponsored NGO who works campaigning the importance of sustainable farming and promoting its products -- as the #1 restaurant who use 100% sustainable farming products.

I look at the menu and choose three delicious meals with indigenous…

ACT-2: Evoke Nayakrishi Spirit!

What I can do quickly is to evoke Nayakrishi spirit.

In 2004, I wrote an honor thesis (unpublished) profiling a community-based agriculture called "Nayakrishi Andolon". This community-based agriculture introduce me with their indigenous economical perspective where, as I said in my thesis, sustainability triumphs (ie. instead of slash-and-burn method, they inherit a system called agroforestry where they align their crops with the existing forrest's ecosystem, and adjust their…

LEARN-2: Agriculture's Talent Challenges

I definitely agree. Key to food security is an ongoing innovation in agriculture to ensure we can keep our land producing foods adjusting with whatever incoming climate changes -- as the latter is less likely to getting better in a short-term. So we need, no matter whether climate crisis is getting better or worse, to innovate rigorously in agricultural innovation. As I'm not an expert on Food Security, I can't comment much to that scientific/innovation part. But reading from several…

IMAGINE-1: VibeLife

I am actually already had this plan -- on what would I do in 10 years time.

Depend on how big my scope of work at that time within my current company, but I am willing to volunteer myself to become 'organisation facilitator' for NGO/INGO who need helps in building their capability, including drawing their organisation plan for 3-5 years onward based on the needs forecast of amount of work they are…

ACT-1: Gunther as Castellian hero of social innovations

As HR business partner, one of my role in the job is to build organisation capability of company's department. The hottest part of this job (which I love the most) is when I'm facilitating a working session when a work process changes, and conflict happens in the form of overlaps, terra incognito or "no man's land" situation, and disagreement on norms on how we should go forward.

I found out that some 'Castellian…

LEARN-1: Incentives and economic sustainability is key to sustainable social innovations

Economic Sustainability is key to a continous social innovations.

Without it, being dependant on fundings, continous presence of an NGO/INGO to making a difference to a society would be chronic at the level of "investment dilemma" -- the more you are investing your time and funds in that particular community, for particular issue, the more 'addicted' society is to the funds, and the more failure it becomes.…

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out.

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
