A GREEN SCHOOL IN BALI

Images from Mount Kilimanjaro or mountain ranges of Himalayas and Alps melting encouraged a Canadian jeweller, John Hardy, to try to improve world with a “green school” in the Indonesian island of Bali, whose registration costs between 10,000 and 14,000 Euros per year for children from 3 to 18 years.

 


An inconvenient truth, ecologist documentary that former U.S. President Al Gore presented in 2006, was his inspiration to build a school made with bamboo and without walls in the Balinese jungle, in the order to educate “children to be different”.

These, maybe, may become into the next green leaders to contribute to make a change of paradigm in a world in which people work for everything is perfect, but don’t pay attention to true problems”, the jeweller Hardy explained EFE.

School opened its doors in the midst of the jungle in 2008, with 90 students and today has more than 400 students from 33 different countries. The 9 per cent are native.

The students don’t wear shoos and sit on the floor in a classrooms without walls to receive a holistic education that are divided in four sections: intellectual, socio-emotional, creative and physic, according he explains.

“Not only they study in green but also live in green”, says founder of a school that graduates its students with the projects that they have designed and materialised in their inner journey “to became into leaders of the sustainability”.

Some of the projects that have been materialized on the island, as the creation of Bio Buses, that reuse oil from the kitchens to transport students ans staff of the school, or Bye bye plastic bags, that seeks to eliminate plastic bags.

Indonesia

Indonesia, with close to 250 million of inhabitants, is responsible -together China, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, of the 60% of the plastic that is launched to oceans and threat of sea ecosystems, according to a report published last March by Science journal.

At Green School, buildings are made with bamboo and the complex is equipped with 87 solar panels that generate 30% of the energy that is consumed in the area. The permaculture and the organic farms provide 550 food rations each day to the school.

In the scholar centre, the annual registration cost between 10,500 and 14,3000 Euro and 40 boys, know as changemakers (people that makes changes) has already left from this to enter the workforce or to train at university.

His satisfaction is such, that Hardy has decided to start a new adventure in the American continent, with a project of green school that seeks to settle on Tulum, famous by its Mayan archaeological ruins, in the south-east of Mexico.
