Gang Motor IMUT - Small Is Beautiful Project

0.0 ·

Gang Motor IMUT (GMI) are not your average motorcycle gang.

They are a community of activists, inventors, engineers and educators from Kupang, a city in Nusa Tenggara Timur, East Indonesia. GMI create and distribute appropriate technologies to small farmers in the hope of transforming small scale organic farms and creating a shift in Indonesia back to sustainable agriculture. They took us to the island of Semau, a half an hour boat ride from Kupang, to meet with farmers there and see the impact of their technologies.

A simple pump sprinkler system made of cheap and easily accessible materials has reduced Alfons' labour time by 50% and at the same time increased his yields. GMI use the proceeds of sales to fund sustainable agriculture programs in the local juvenile detention centre.

Watch the film and be inspired by GMI's commitment to their community and their vision for sustainable agriculture!

This is the third installment in a series of little films about big change-makers by Small is Beautiful Project. You can follow us on Facebook here:

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
