TEDxPearlRiver - John Hardy - The extraordinary Green School in Bali

After selling his jewelry company in 2007, John Hardy and his wife, Cynthia, endowed a thrilling new project: the Green School in Bali. At the Green School, kids learn in open-air classrooms surrounded by acres of gardens that they tend; they learn to build with bamboo; and meanwhile they're being prepared for traditional British school exams. The school is international—20 percent of students are Bali locals, some on scholarship. The centerpiece of the campus is the spiraling Heart of School, which may be called Asia's largest bamboo building. Hardy has long been an advocate of the use of bamboo as an alternative to timber for building and reforestation...(Acknowledgment: TEDxPearlRiver is very grateful to Podge Dimagiba for video editing, AJ Libunao for photography at www.flickr.com/photos/TEDxPearlRiver/sets and Victor Zhang for video transcoding, as well as the production crew) www.TEDxPearlRiver.comAbout TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
