Bali, Indonesia (July 4, 2013)—Representatives from Green School in Bali, awarded “Greenest School on Earth” by the Center for Green Schools at the United States Green Building Council, will host free community information nights in the Northern Rivers and Brisbane this month. With a mission to educate the planet’s future green leaders, Green School has attracted worldwide attention since opening in 2008. Green School’s information nights will take place at the Crystal Castle in Mullumbimby on July 23 and at the EcoCentre at Griffith University in Brisbane on July 24.

The world-renowned Green School in Bali has a student body of preschool through high school students comprised of 20% Australians, with hundreds of Australians visiting the school each year for tours and Green Camps.  The school offers a natural, holistic, student-centered learning environment that empowers and inspires students to be creative, innovative green leaders. The events in the Northern Rivers and Brisbane will provide several ways Australian students, parents and teachers can join Green School’s mission and get involved with programs to take place both in Australia and Bali this year.

According to Green School Chairman Roger Hamilton, “in a time when environment and education are such critical issues in the world, the fact that Australia’s close neighbour has been awarded the ‘Greenest School on Earth’ highlights that solutions are on our door step. Education of a new generation armed with solutions to Earth’s greatest challenges is crucial, now more than ever. For people seeking new paradigms in education and sustainability, these timely events in the Northern Rivers and Brisbane will provide an opportunity to get involved.”
