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 Tulum. Our ‘living’ curriculum educates for sustainability through community-integrated, entrepreneurial learning, in a natural 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.
“Green School is a model we built for the world.”

“MY GREEN SCHOOL DREAM”: WATCH CO-FOUNDER JOHN HARDY’S TED TALK
Green School was conceived in 2006 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 wanted to build it in Bali.
The catalyst came when John and Cynthia watched Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Truth’ – it compelled them to take up his call to action, and create a school that educates for sustainability.
In collaboration with master craftsmen, architects, permaculturist, academics and philosophers, Green School Bali opened in September 2008. Since then it has become a beacon for the future of education, with a growing community of Green Schools opening around the world.
