WOW's 'Cultural Wealth' Collaborations
Every year, the world loses a staggering three million hectares of agricultural land to soil degradation and an additional four million hectares to urban development such as highways, housing, and factories. In Asia and Bali, this not only leads to land loss but also threatens the cultural wealth and spiritual conscious culture that is so vital to our way of life and food abundance. We must take immediate action to reclaim and preserve our land, cultures, and heritage.
WOW's Cultural Wealth collaborations are dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional and indigenous cultures through sustainable solutions, mutualism, creative economics, and active learning exchanges. By working together and embracing the spirit of community, we can overcome the challenges of globalization and keep our cultural heritage alive. Our WOW Dynamics Framework, also known as the "Path towards Freedom," and eco-tourism programs offer a unique opportunity to experience traditional culture in a modern context. Come visit our "smart center" sites, such as WOW Sekar Bumi, WOW Batur, WOW Malaka, WOW Taman Sari in Tampaksering and more, currently in development. These are not just tourist destination but also a unique cultural immersion experience.
