More Green, The Green School in Indonesia

More green, more beauty.....
Located in Bali, the Green School was started as a way to promote sustainable education and green building. It's a beautiful example of what can be accomplished using local sustainably-grown bamboo.
Each and single construction of these green schools from Indonesia are made from bamboo and other very natural materials. And the greatest things about the buildings are that they blend with nature and build in nature, one in fact was built next to the river where the roof stands between each big rocks standing at each of the banks of the rivers. It’s a great way to support healthy living and coming back to the nature. 

How it started

The Green School has recently been shortlisted for the Aga Khan Awards for Architecture for its sustainable merits.

  1. I'd love to attend a school like this!

    I've had some classes meet outside, and I got the most out of them because I wasn't tempted to stare out the window to alleviate my boredom. Wouldn't it be great to learn while experiencing that connection with sunlight and nature?

    It's better for the students and for the environment. :)
