Bye Bye Plastic Bags is a social initiative driven by children, driven by the youth to get the people of Bali to say no to plastic bags. Founders and sisters, Melati (15) and Isabel (13) Wijsen started Bye Bye Plastic Bags 3 years ago when they were inspired by a lesson in class about significant people like Nelson Mandela, Lady Diana, Mahatma Ghandi. They went home that day and thought “What can we do as children living in Bali, what can we do NOW.” Bye Bye Plastic Bags was born in 2013 and now has a volunteer team of 25-30 students from all schools around Bali, local and international. And has become a well known international movement of inspiration, youth empowerment, and of course, saying no to plastic bags.

Silicon bali is a pop-up decelerator where global catalysts, entrepreneurs and innovators meet for two reasons: to work together as a collective and grow individually as people mentally, emotionally and spiritually

 

During 5 days in Canggu, Bali, hands-on workshops and discussions are alternated with meditation and yoga sessions. Silicon Bali is as much a platform for personal development, networking and entrepreneurship as it is aimed to generate social value by leveraging on the collective intelligence of participants to solve social challenges

We believe that self-awareness, interdisciplinary intelligence and business solutions must go hand in hand

We created Silicon Bali as a platform for change, both at personal and collective level

 

Silicon Bali will be an annually recurring event where driven individuals get together to express their creativity, learn and grow together in meaningful ways
