GREEN SCHOOL TULUM
Green School’s mission is to create a global community of learners, making our world sustainable.
From our origins at Green School Bali, we have become a global movement in education, with schools opening in New Zealand South Africa, and soon, Tulum. Our ‘living’ curriculum educates for sustainability through community-integrated, entrepreneurial learning, in wall-less and nature-immersed environment.
We strive to champion a new model of education that nurtures the whole child, giving them agency in their own lives and learning, so that they can thrive with purpose in our ever-changing world. We invite you to join our global community and discover the difference for your family.
“Our shared vision is motivated by a deep concern for, and attention to, the wellbeing of our students and our planet.”
EIM CO-FOUNDER, KAREN YUNG
In May of 2021, Green Schools welcomed a new partnership with Education in Motion, a growing family of pioneering education brands. EiM began in 2003, when co-founders Fraser White and Karen Yung built their first school in Shanghai in order to provide the type of holistic education they wanted for their own children, one that would prepare children for the future and empower them to make a positive difference in the world. Today, EiM schools worldwide, including Green Schools, nurture more than 11,000 students to have a positive impact on society and the planet.
“Green School is a model we built for the world.”

“MY GREEN SCHOOL DREAM”: WATCH CO-FOUNDER JOHN HARDY’S TED TALK
The global Green School movement first began with the opening of Green School Bali in 2008 by life-long entrepreneurs, John and Cynthia Hardy. After years of homeschooling, they wanted their daughters to attend a school that they believed in. When John read Alan Wagstaff’s Three Springs, he was so inspired by the vision of a holistic learning community that he began building one in Bali in collaboration with master craftsmen, architects, permaculturist, academics and philosophers.
Since opening, Green School Bali has become a beacon for the future of education, with a growing community that includes Green Camp, Green Educators Course, and new Green School locations around the world.
