Ready - Can remote collaboration and coworking burst small-world complacency? - Form Text Source

My name is Faye Alund and I’m the CEO and co-founder of Kumpul, a co-learning platform that provides quality programs as an engine for ecosystem builders. I am also president of Coworking Indonesia association, supporting the development of Coworking in Indonesia.

Our tech platform is a marketplace of four programs that ecosystem builders can tap into, but I think the key to my work is the power of community, and local heroes. When we started, it was so difficult to explain coworking and why it’s important for economic development of a country. We really believe that coworking is one of the most effective ecosystem builders, and now there are 300 spaces across Indonesia.

When people get stuck in their bubble they meet the same people again and again. It’s important to burst that bubble, and coworking is accelerating that serendipity. Our yearly Unconference is a big part of that.

How is this financed?
This Community Journalism project and publication is part of the NGI Forward initiative. Launched by the European Commission in the autumn of 2016, NGI stands for Next Generation Internet. It has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 825652 from 2019-2021. You can learn more about the initiative and our involvement in it at

Where does this lead?
The contents of Edgeryders “Internet of Humans” NGI Forum and the Community Journalism project are analysed using the SSNA method. The results are then sent to EU lawmakers to be incorporated into policy recommendations. It will also inform a conference at the end of the project and selected articles and contributions will be published in book form as the “Next Generation Internet - Edgeryders Digest”. The authors of the selected articles who agree to them being published in that book will also be invited personally to the final conference.
