Our founder, full-time changemaker Melati Wijsen, spoke to over 1 million students in every corner of the world over the years. And, again and again, there was always one question the students asked: “How can I do what you do ?”
That is why YOUTHTOPIA exists. To provide an answer to that question. To help harness Gen Z’s energy for change. To one day empower millions around the world to be catalysts for change.
Today, we are powered by the sun through our solar panels. We have a flourishing permaculture garden out front that welcomes lots of butterflies and bees to buzz around.
Inside our recycled shipping containers we have a team of 7 full time staff. It is a new team and a young team. We are a group of passionate and determined individuals who come from all over Indonesia.
To achieve change, we must work together. YOUTHTOPIA believes in an intergenerational approach. Alongside our signature Circle of Youth network, we also have a Circle of Wisdom. To compliment and synergise the youthful energy with some deep wisdom.
