!! Background info to Green School in Bali:
Set up in 2008 by John Hardy, a successful Canadian business man, visionary genius and a committed ecologist. The school exists without any outside institutional funding. Most families are Western, only around 10% of the students are Balinese, often from the surrounding villages, who receive scholarships to attend. Western families come initially for a year, often with the idea of going back, renewed and refreshed with a newly found desire to learn, and a new philosophy about life to take back to the west.

They came back with a film, Green School Stories, and the conviction that learning must also include the notion of fun..." - Doolittle Magazine (March 2018)
