Holistic Learning | The greenest school

(Next World TV | Bibi Farber) Here is a school in Bali, Indonesia, designed to have the smallest environmental impact of any school. The structures are made of bamboo, the kids grow food in a permaculture garden, they use composting toilets, and electricity is provided from a hydro electric system.

They is a private school, offering nursery through primary school that teaches an original version of the Waldorf pedagogy, pioneered by Rudolf Steiner.

There is no air conditioning, no rigid desk setting. Although academic standards are established to meet international private school standards, the kids are learning and creating a green curriculum as they go, sometimes taking initiatives like going paperless for a semester!

This holistic curriculum is designed to foster the creative individual inside us, and what could be more relevant than teaching kids to connect with and honor our earth?
