JUNE 2022 — Sun Sang Eco Village and Good City Foundation have together marked the recent completion of collaboration at the first stage since January 2019. The collaboration was first established through the development program Public Private Partnership by Youth (PPP by Youth) in Bali Island. The collaboration, supported by local champion organisations (public and private sectors) and Harvard Graduate School of Design, delivers digital transformation to the social venture of bamboo villages (an ecosystem of eco-tourism, bamboo house home-stay and bamboo materials up-cycling treatment centre).

The first stage of collaboration has recently been completed with the launch of web-based digital platform with the upcoming stage of development including business innovation with technology partnership in digital payments, e-commerce and green architecture investment collaboration, riding on the business need accelerated by the shocks brought by COVID-19 global pandemic towards tourism industries and green economy in the last 3 years.

With the digital payments ecosystem, digital membership subscription in green tourism (with other tourism vendors and hospitality service providers in Bali Island) and low-carbon architecture and construction would be made possible.

Circular bamboo economy with local bamboo construction materials suppliers ecosystem was to be established within Bali Island to ensure low-carbon emission logistics and construction development for future housing with Balinese housing needs and tourism business development.

2019–2020: Public Private Partnership by Youth in Denpasar, Bali Island

The collaboration was originated in the development program series “Public Private Partnership by Youth” (PPP by Youth) in Denpasar City, the capital of Bali Island in Indonesia. The development program was co-curated in collaboration with the support of local champion organisations such as Denpasar Tourism Development Board, Indonesia Creative Cities Network, Global Shapers Denpasar Hub, KemBali and others.

The PPP by Youth development programs were conducted in 2 consecutive years to primarily explore the tourism policies and industry development landscape in Bali Island with the support of local government (Mayor Office). With the local social venture (Sun Sang Eco Village) identified in the first program, the second program focuses on the local project assessment and consultation with the support of the Masters and Lecturer from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. With the final project assessment and recommendations presented in the program, Good City Foundation selected the feasible development paths for implementation.
