This paper describes how a social entrepreneur in Borneo launches a bottom-up change process to tackle wicked problems. The results of the change process to date have been remarkable: the regeneration of forest areas and habitats for endangered species, the redesign of communities and their local economies to support the forests and habitats, the reduction of crime and corruption, and changes in the climate which have generated much-needed rainfall in the area. In contrast to Indonesiaâ€™s top-down initiatives, this bottom-up strategy illustrates how the empowerment of the local people can produce dramatic results.
