On Facebook, we want to make the world closer together. It starts by connecting different communities to learn from each other. This is the reason why we established Ruang Komunal Indonesia, a comfortable collaborative space in Jakarta, where communities can gather and connect more meaningfully. We want to create a place for various communities to learn from each other and for community activists to share their stories and experiences with each other. You never know, your story can be a source of inspiration for others. All of this for the sake of a better and stronger Indonesia.
