About the School

One of Green School Bali’s long-term goals is to remove the school from the grid to become a completely sustainable and self-sufficient building, and to help find solutions to the country’s electricity shortages. Thanks to a mix of renewable energy resources in the school, Green School Bali produces 72 kWh of its own energy. It also provides a wide range of learning experiences for their students. The students themselves, guided by teachers, experts and community members, implement and lead each and every aspect of the school’s projects. This level of involvement allows them to build both their skills and the confidence to make a difference through community-based, entrepreneurial education.

Project Description

Green School Bali’s project will help create awareness in the community concerning the dangers of batteries as hazardous waste at the same time as helping to reduce Indonesia’s growing electronic waste problem. Approximately one million phones and 35,000 laptops are replaced every year in Bali. The project will create new opportunities for cooperating with the Balinese community by collecting used batteries and collaborating on building a battery bank. The project will also reduce current CO2 emissions by a third (from 33 tons of CO2 a year to 11 tons).
