We got involved in sustainable development first during the time when our adviser was still working in Germany for a environmental technology fund and having his first experience by taking a 6 month unpaid leave to introduce a waste to energy technology to the major of Denpasar back in 1998.
Ahead of the time he soon learned that there are more factors to be considered and after a few experiences back and forward and working as a volunteer for 2 years with Art for Tourism Foundation on sustainable and responsible tourism initiatives.
It was after the first Bali terror attack that he got involved with other expats and Balinese leaders to initiate the Kuta Small Business Association and a recovery program through the Kuta Karnival the first truly international community event in Bali .
After this experience he developed a project concept for capacity building of local SMEs in the sector of handicraft, which lead to the setup of CV Bali Komunika Internasional (branding under Bali International Consulting Group) our initial legal entity.
Through this we were able to get EU funding for the project and facilitated a range of other projects and programs and both our company founders area also founders of the Business and Export Development Organization.
