Everyday Wonder: Living with positivity and compassion to help escape or elevate the everyday.

As Indonesians seek comfort amidst uncertainties and challenges, many are looking for ways to understand and connect with one another. Some escape into fantasy worlds while others turn to astrology and folktales. 

One Planet: Supporting a more sustainable future with a desire to do better, together.

While the environment and sustainability aren’t new conversations, they have entered the mainstream. As Indonesians become more knowledgeable and empowered, they’re voicing their concerns and forging conversations in hope of making a difference.

Tech Life: Share your vision for the future to create a more connected way of life.

Irreversible and widespread integration of tech into our everyday lives has inspired a new dialogue about the way we live, work, and create.

My Identity: Empowering people to embrace their individuality and speak up for their values.

People are feeling more supported — and celebrated — to be their true self. And Indonesians become emboldened to stand by their beliefs and voice their concerns — purposefully, truthfully, and authentically.
