This is our vision for the future of Silimalombu, Samosir Island, Lake Toba and beyond. This is the work we are already doing, the projects we are working towards and the dream that drives us. This is the network of individuals, organisations and partners who believe that this vision can be a reality and who are already taking action themselves.

Our vision is a ecosystem of related values.

We believe in collective empowerment. We challenge the world view that wealth is based on money. Instead we value our relationships to each other and the riches that we are surrounded by in the natural world. We harness the power of the natural world such as solar energy that is plentiful and free. We want to share this with our community and empower them. We want to be self-reliant and propose an alternative, resource-based economy.

We believe deeply in ecology our relationship to Nature and how we can restore the balance between the natural world and how we live our lives. We defend our environment against those that damage it, or threaten it, for the sake of profit. We turn to the earth and the lake for our sustenance and sustainable living.

We believe in innovation fusing our old cultural wisdom with new technology. Learning, giving and sharing will enable us to evolve towards a future that is fertile and beneficial for all.

We believe in connecting with ourselves, each other, and nature.

We want you to join us.
