The Green Educator Course is awarded for the second year in a row by HundrEd as one of 100 global innovative impactful and scalable innovations in sustainability education and one of the ten leading training programs for sustainability around the world.
HundrED is an organisation from Finland which seeks and shares inspiring innovations in K12 education. A team of researchers investigated innovations from around the world to determine 100 projects that are already changing the face of education. Over 1,000 innovations were identified through research, events and recommendations and then 160 were evaluated by HundrED’s academy made up of educational experts, educators and students (ages 11-19 years old) from 28 countries on their innovativeness, impact and scalability. They came to Green School to make a short video which you can watch here.
We had four courses in semester 1 all focusing on different themes and topics and with great guest speakers. This is a short impression of our courses in English and Bahasa Indonesia:
“The Green Educator Course is the best educator course I have ever attended. Thank you so much for the team efforts to organise and thank you to all the other educators who were so inspirational.
We had so much fun within the 5-day course and I would strongly recommend attending to anyone who is thinking about it.”

“Attending the Green Educator Course at Green School Bali was a birthday gift from my father. He paid for everything and told me, “Go and learn from its best.” He gave it because joining GEC 2018 was in my wishlist. This experience was a powerful turning point for me to know what I can do better for the earth and how I can start it from myself then to others. So much story and learning to share and make it into actions!”

Our next course is coming up from 25 February to 1 March focusing on Sustainable Consumption. Please check our website for more information.
