“In Bali we held a 110 person workshop under one of the world’s largest bamboo structures. It was on a Tuesday. On Wednesday ten people came to a facilitator training. On Thursday one of them (Frans Sugiarto, an experienced World Climate facilitator) translated the materials into Bahasa Indonesian. And on Friday Frans and his colleagues ran En-ROADS for cross-sectoral influencers across Indonesia.”
