Wow Bali Prospectus

  1. 1. YAYASAN GLOBAL BANJAR INTERNASIONAL WOW BALI INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVE Bali, Indonesia About WOW Bali Wow Bali is an internationally recognized program on regenerative sustainable development that started in 2012 in Bali, Indonesia. WOW Bali Co-founder and Creative Director Hai Dai Nguyen developed the Sustainable Dynamics Framework based on his case studies of grassroots sustainable community-based ecotourism best practices in Bali, Indonesia since 2008. “Sustainable Dynamics” are the forces and properties that enable a community to coexist and operate interdependently. WOW Bali program and projects are sustained through mutualism and creative economics with its partners, allowing for the regeneration of new initiatives. The program used to operate under the Yayasan Tri Hita Karana Bali, an organization founded on the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana—the core of the Balinese belief system, which traces the “causes of goodness” on a harmonious relationship between God, people, and nature. Tri Hita Karana Bali exists to educate both adults and children about organic farming practices. Through its various projects and workshops, it is able to sustain its advocacy towards preserving the Bali culture and raise environmental awareness through the principles of permaculture. In 2015, after three years of developing sustainable local initiatives, WOW Bali evolved from being a program into its very own Yayasan Global Banjar Internasional with the support of its long-term local partners. Board of Directors: Contact Information Address 1: No. 8 Jl Cocoa II, Desa Kedewatan, Ubud, Bali 80571– Indonesia Address 2: WOW Smart Center Sekar Bumi Tropical Farm Jl. Raya Sekar Bumi No.99, Br. Buhu Desa Kerta Payangan, Gianyar, Bali 80572 – Indonesia Tel. No. +62 819-9954-5666 Email: wow@wowbali.com oxoxhd@gmail.com Website: www.wowbali.com Hai Dai Nguyen Sienara Arsyad Ketut Subagia Tracy Nguyen This initiative for international collaborations on sustainable development builds upon the existing efforts and aspirations of people behind Wow Bali, a program in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, that has a mission to co-develop “regenerative” processes for a more “Sustainable Dynamic” living and learning (with)in 21st century communities.
  2. 2. Vision | Mission WOW Bali envisions a world in which everyone is happy, healthy, and prosperous by virtue of living in complete harmony with the “dynamic” (forces and properties) of human culture and the natural ecosystem. This would be an evolutionary systemic solution of sustainable cultures here in Asia and most indigenous and traditional cultures of the world. Our mission is to co-develop “regenerative” processes for a more “Sustainable Dynamic” (S|D) in living and learning for 21st century communities. (S|D) designs are based on human-centered processes and evolutionary design system for the integration of local wisdom (native intelligence) with applied modern methodologies. WOW Bali aims to develop systemic, holistic, transrdisciplinary, and participatory learning experiences to cultivate human’s “creative potentials”. The goals for international collaborations in various areas of sustainable development (such as, but not limited to sustainable ecotourism and agrotourism) are premised upon the “regenerative” (easy- to-do; simple-to-share) processes that WOW Bali fosters, based on today’s living culture. We believe that sharing of practices, when sustained, can yield valuable impacts not only for individuals and groups involved but also for the communities within which they work or function. Through collaboration, we seek to co-develop ecological communities in the long run so that sustainable practices can thrive and regenerate. They will be showcased in various platforms to serve as models for others to emulate. Programs | Offerings LEARNING EXCHANGE For WOW Bali, learning is a dynamic process and is unique for every individual. We support and apply ‘active learning’ (action research) methodologies to inspire creativity and maximize individual learning experience. DYNAMIC WELLNESS (aka ‘WOW Dynamics’) Learning about the natural dynamics of the human body has a lot to teach us about sustainable living, our relationships with others, with nature, and with the divine. We have researched and affirmed simple regenerative wellness processes (universal modalities) based on traditional cultures and native intelligences that connect us back to nature. These are simple reminders of own creative human’s autonomy, which inspires experiential dynamics towards sustainable human transformation. SUSTAINABLE TOURISM WOW Paradise authentic learning tours fuse ecological, academic, cultural and adventure tours to give you a one-of-a kind travel and learning experience. The sustainable eco-villages (WOW Smart Centers) we are co-developing in Bali will welcome you and share a piece of paradise that you can bring with you long after your visit. CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS
  3. 3. Building a sustainable future requires us to work together. WOW Bali International Initiative supports and practices creative collaborations with various stakeholders through mutualism partnerships in sustainable dynamics.

WOW Bali consulted for Netflix Dance Documentary “We Speak Dance” this year, showcasing how affective cultural dance via WOW ‘sustainable dynamics’ can affirm cultural uniqueness; beyond the aesthetic of dance and into using dance and the arts as effective tools in socio-cultural development. This process goes back to the backbone of socio-cultural development—traditional beliefs that came before dance and the arts were monetized in performance-based processes. The return of sacredness within dance and the arts connect to one’s creative autonomy; a self-directed course of one’s wellbeing as an offering to their highest self and divinity. This connects people to human’s highest aptitude—creativity for connecting the dots in everyday living. WOW Bali in a partnership with Bali Flow Temple for a dynamic exchange in collaborations to integrate WOW Dynamics framework within creative movements that reconnect one’s flow; fused by the elementals for a deeper understanding of connectedness and intentions. Develop one’s action learning as an inspiration towards creative movements; inspiring creative autonomy as a sacred offering that is imprinted in our cognitive minds via the elementals of fire, water, wind or earth. In short, where ever creative mind goes, blood follows and where blood goes energy manifests; impregnate this manifestation with intentions and imagination then healing begins. WOW Bali launched “Sacred Adventures” in this inaugural cultural exchange with Ratu Pedenda (High Priest of the Balinese Calendar) famous for WARIGA BELOG based on ancient systems used by the Balinese for farming, now has evolved into self-management and personal wellness guidance system, a native intelligence used by collaborative networks. The cultural exchange bridged the Balinese cultural aesthetics with modern cultures and traditional modalities of wellness for global regenerative development. Ratu Pedanda shared the application of the Balinese calendar and how events such as ceremonies and celebrations can help build communities. Under WOW framework and instructional design via technology regenerative development, Ratu Pendanda and WOW Team will co-create wellness, creative autonomy and transformative leadership solutions for sustainable dynamics toward optimum regenerative exchange.
