About the Taman Petanu Eco Neighborhood

The Taman Petanu Eco Neighborhood is a visionary project whose time has come. 

Bali is renowned worldwide for its natural beauty, rich culture and social serenity. But today, over development of the island with unsustainable practices is a serious concern for many Balinese. The island's limited resources are being stretched to their limit. 

Aware of these challenges that are being face by this precious island a group of concerned Indonesians and local Bali residents came together to brainstorm what could be done to facilitate the development of a more sustainable pathway.

Together they came to the conclusion that a sound model that clearly demonstrates how the inevitable development of the popular island can be conducted in a more socially, culturally and environmentally sound manner was of great importance. 

A legal body, The Taman Petanu Perkumpulan (non-profit association), was formed under which the development of the neighbourhood is now underway, with residents slowing starting to live on site, students and visiotrs coming to learn from Taman Petanu's experiences... the neighbourhood is naturally developing and achieving the initial vision: providing a living - learning model for better development in Bali, Indonesia and beyond.

Sincere thanks to all of those who have helped this amazing vision come into reality!
