Director of the Zayed Future Energy Prize, Nawal Al-Hosany said:

“We are impressed with their vision that ensures sustainability (in the energy sector) for future generations.”

So, what did the school do to win this prize? Let’s find out.

Since they were retired and living in Bali, they decided to give back to the locals. Thus Green School was born.

John Hardy said during Ted Talk:

“I know it doesn’t look like a school, but it is extremely green. The classroom has no walls. The teachers are writing on bamboo blackboards. The desk is not square.”

To make the school even more polar bear friendly, an alternative energy company from Paris built a vortex for them which can produce 8,000 watts of electricity when the turbine is engaged.

“The Green School sits on a 20-acre of rolling garden. There’s an amazing river travelling through it and you can see how we managed to get across the river.”

In terms of education, they do learn the essential reading and writing skills, and arithmetic. But they also learn something extra such as bamboo building skill and mud wrestling which is a Balinese art. Let me enroll please!

Since it’s a green school, bamboos instead of concretes were used to build the buildings.
