TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The unique approach of addressing civil society issues with design ingenuity won an Indonesian social enterprise organization the Grand Jury prize at this year’s Asia Pacific Social Enterprise Summit (APSES) in Kaohsiung.
Cigondewah Fashion Village Lab, devised by Bandung Creative City Forum, took home the summit’s top prize, along with a separate Social Progress award. The lab is a “closed-loop creative economy ecosystem for the fashion industry” that aims to generate a sustainable economy and living environment for people that are currently heavily dependent on textile factory outputs.
