Organisation: Green School Bail
Green School operates in Bali under Yayasan Kul-Kul, a non-profit foundation registered in Indonesia. The Mission of Green School contributes to their vision by educating young leaders in global citizenship. The purpose is to champion a new model of learning that connects the timeless lessons from nature to a relevant and effective preparation for a fast-changing future.
Inspired by Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’ & Alan Wagstaff’s “Three Springs”, a jewellery merchant couple, John and Cynthia Hardy were compelled to take up his call to action to build a ‘real’ school for their next generations. They took action in 2006, by building the school’s bamboo bridge, spanning 22 meters across the Ayung River, Bali. Finally the Green School was opened in 2008 with 90 students and a tailor-made campus that emerged from the jungle and rice fields. Since then it has grown to 400 students and to an inspiring example of education for sustainability.
They educate for sustainability, through community-integrated, entrepreneurial learning, in a wall-less, natural environment. Our holistic, student-guided approach inspires and empowers us to be green leaders. They believe in three simple rules underlying every decision: be local; let your environment be your guide; and envisage how your grandchildren will be affected by your actions. The eight Green School iRespect Values that guide us are: Integrity; Responsibility; Empathy; Sustainability; Peace; Equality; Community; Trust.
For 10 years, Green School has been an incubator for students to generate ideas, experiment, design, innovate and get real-life sustainable solutions off the ground. In 2018, they are celebrating their 10th anniversary and running student-led projects through Green Project Hub.
