Bali's Eco-Friendly Green School

Large arrow left

When he sold his jewelry company in 2007, Canadian expat John Hardy and his wife reinvested much of the money into the Green School, an innovative K-12 school in Sibang Kaja, Bali. The curriculum is very experiential—the international and Balinese students learn everything from aquaculture to Balinese puppetry. The school, named greenest school of 2012 by the U.S. Green Building Council, is worth a visit, if only to see the far-out architecture. Many of the complex buildings are constructed entirely of bamboo.
