In honor of the United Nations’ International #EducationDay, we brought together a panel of experts to discuss the potential impact of teaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in schools, and provide educators with tangible steps to make it happen in their own schools. Moderated by a renowned conservationist and former Green School Bali parent and ‘Activist in Residence’ on campus, Alexandra Cousteau, panelists include Bill Sal Gordon, Green School Bali’s Head of School, Courtney Kimmel, Vice President at the Captain Planet Foundation; Elizabeth Crawford, HundrED ambassador and Associate Professor at University of North Carolina at Wilmington; Kinvara Jardine Paterson, Senior Campaign Manager at The World’s Largest Lesson and Mike Long, Director of Operations Parley for the Oceans.

The World Economic Forum Calls Us a School of the Future. What is a Green School Education?

(Watch the Full Panel Video Here)
What does it mean to be a “School of the Future” ? Why are traditional models of education proving inadequate in preparing students for the real world? Now, more than ever, students need the knowledge, lifeskills, and values that are interdisciplinary and transferable, in order to navigate a rapidly evolving world. Hear our Green School educators discuss these topics and the Green School way. Panelists include Leslie Medema – Head of Learning for Green School International, Chris Edwards – CEO for Green School New Zealand, Andy Wood – Head of School for Green School South Africa, and Gede Witsen – Green School Bali Alumni. This panel discussion is moderated by Rebecca Sykes, ex- Head of School at Phillips Academy Andover, and prior President of the Oprah Winfrey Foundation.

Panel: Green School Food Program

(Watch the Full Panel Video Here)
At Green School, we are leading a movement in student-led sustainability and environment conservation in the realm of food. Our students develop a healthy relationship with food from an early age, grow and cook their own food, and learn the impact of their eating and consuming habits on themselves and on the environment around them. On World Food Day, 2020 Green School Bali hosted Orin Hardy – Co-founder of The Kul Kul Farm, Simon Jongenotter – Creator of food at Zest Ubud & Founder of New Earth Cooking School, and Ida Rahayu – Green School’s Food Education teacher for a Live Discussion on the role of food in our lives and how we can all become more conscious and ethical in our growing, eating and waste management practices.
