Gunung.org was founded in 2018 with the goal of promoting high level thinking skills to as wide a readership as possible. This covers a complex and wide range of areas but perhaps the core is good decision making. How to make good decisions ought to be central to all education, including self-education.

The name ‘gunung’ means ‘mountain’ in Indonesian and Malay, and indeed many of our best ideas come to us as we hike in the mountains, gain new perspective and have time to reflect on the ultimately trivial matters of our day-to-day lives back down below in the cities and towns.
