This o2 Indonesia site is kept as a journal relevant to design and sustainability issues, as a liaison for the o2 Global Network. o2 Indonesia was initiated on January 25th, 2008 and is currently activated by Singgih (Temanggung), Joshua (Jakarta), Tita (Bandung) and Ipam (Helsinki). Our intentions are to share ideas and experiences of sustainable practices, especially those (but not limited to) that have been happening in Indonesia, and to preserve positive values that come out of those practices.
