In 2010 John Hardy introduced to the world at the TED Conference his dream: his Green School in Bali. When it opened in 2008 the Green School was met with a mixture of admiration, astonishment and ridicule. Skeptics shouted: ‘it’s just a bunch of hippies in a bamboo hut, it’s not a proper school’. Five years later Green School has captured the imagination of a global audience as children’s paradise, parent’s dream, architectural wonder and a solution to environmental crises. Today, regardless of material status more and more parents are pulling their kids out of a standard or even prestigious education, packing theirs bags, changing their lives, moving to Bali and enrolling their children in the greenest school on earth. Are they mad or is it the best thing they have ever done?
