Taking a holistic approach to creating a sustainable school in Bali, Indonesia, founders Cynthia and John Hardy designed Green School. The goal was to have a minimal impact on the land, while also teaching the next generation how to be ecologically responsible.
Unlike usual schools, the classrooms have no walls and the desks aren’t rectangular. The whiteboards within the classrooms were made from recycled car windshields with a white paper as the background. Obtaining energy from solar, along with a hydro-vortex, green school achieves an off-the-grid status. The surrounding area is full of lush garden landscaping. This provides food for the lunch, which is cooked on sawdust burners by local Balinese women. The gardens also educate the students on growing organic foods.
