Indonesia is launching a monumental project to construct its new capital city, Nusantara, from scratch in Borneo. This enormous undertaking has the potential to change the face of the nation and create a prosperous future for generations to come.
The construction of Nusantara is an unprecedented investment in Indonesian infrastructure, and will bring many economic opportunities that can help lift Indonesia out of poverty. The city has already welcomed its first inhabitants and is expected to become home to millions by 2024.
Nusantara will be a state-of-the-art metropolis built with cutting edge technology and modern amenities. It will feature an efficient public transportation system, wide green spaces, eco-friendly housing, and high quality public services. Additionally, Nusantara is built on principles of sustainability, with renewable energy sources accounting for most of its power needs.
This ambitious project has been captured in award-winning documentary “Building Paradise” which offers a unique glimpse into the story behind this effort. By following construction workers and local leaders’ struggles and successes over a two year period, Building Paradise provides an insightful look at the challenges associated with constructing a city from scratch.
