~While so much of our attention is turned towards the impending war(s) and evils of the world right now, I thought it would be good to focus on some of the GoodStuffs that are also happening on this crazy-wonderful planet of ours. ~
Green School in Bali, Indonesia is giving its students a natural, holistic and student-centered education in one of the most amazing environments on the planet…The U.S. Green Building Council’s Center for Green Schools awarded Green School the “2012 Greenest School on Earth“. This was an affirmation of the program we provide to enrich and nurture our students.
“Green School was conceived by its founders in 2006 following their excitement at reading the Three Springs concept document for an educational village community, authored by Alan Wagstaff. The school opened its doors in September 2008 with around 100 pupils and a tailor made campus that had only recently emerged from the jungle and rice fields. Since then it has grown physically and in student numbers.”
“Green School combines the talent of several and very differently gifted individuals. Its founders, John and Cynthia Hardy, have been residents in Bali for more than 30 years and recognise a unique opportunity to create something truly inspiring and outside of the structural, conceptual, and physical limitations of many traditional schools. Alan Wagstaff, educational consultant and the author of Green School’s original curriculum, has been involved in cutting-edge education for more than a quarter of a century. Jürgen Zimmer, professor at The Free University of Berlin, brings his hands-on educational experience to the School that has helped him develop a global network of schools.”
