About the project:
How are social enterprise, indigenous rights, orangutan rehabilitation, sustainable forest products, documentary film and solutions-based environmental activism all connected? Come find out from those working for the forests, people, and wildlife of Indonesian Borneo!
This is a unique event to Entrepreneur Social because it addresses multiscale social enterprises, sustainable development, cultural survival, biodiversity conservation, and truly collaborative projects of cross-cultural community and education all in one event. It will be highlighted by two episode screenings of the series The Eco-Warriors storying the ongoing struggles, transformations, and successes of these intersectional projects in Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo).
"The Eco-Warriors" summary:
Forests are being destroyed at a devastating rate, threatening endangered orangutans and contributing to climate change. A group of adventurous young people leave their known worlds behind and travel to the heart of Borneo to confront one of the great global challenges of our time. Jojo and Juvi, two orphaned baby orangutans, are entrusted into their care and they must find a way to halt the destruction and return them to their forest home. Time is running out, the odds are against them but they never give up. This is a story about what it takes to be an Eco-Warrior, an individual willing to step up and do something to avert a global catastrophe.
