GETTING THERE

The school is situated in the rural village of Sibang Kaja in beautiful Bali Island. The campus can be easily accessed by motorbike or car and– it is located about 30-mins from Ubud or Canggu; 1 hour from Seminyak, Sanur and 1,5 hour from the Airport. A list of taxis, drivers, car-share providers and helpful tips for transport is provided for our participants prior to arriving in Bali.

I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali - there are many flights in and out of Bali each day, which makes it easy to get to and from Bali from multiple locations.

Bali is full of amazing accommodation options and you may wish to book some extra time prior to, or after the course to explore and enjoy Bali. You will find options and various priced offerings via these websites: Booking.com, Agoda, Tiket.com, Traveloka, or AirBnb. You can also extend your stay in the unique Green Educators accommodation, at a modest additional charge.  

Bali is a very safe place for single travelers and it is likely you will make many friends during the course.

The facilitators will be our own Green School Faculty Members. Tapping into the creativity and wisdom of some of the world’s most seasoned Green Educators, these masters will be your guides through the program.

Yes, during the week there will be one or two days where we take the group to go out, learn and experience nature, local community, culture and tradition. You may also get an opportunity to join students’ projects/activities outside the school.

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • This course is designed for anyone who is passionate and interested in putting sustainability at the center of their daily life, especially for school teachers and administrators.
  • Basic English speaking, listening and reading comprehension is required.
  • Participants have to be over 18 years of age and committed to engage actively during the transfer of learning process with facilitators, colleagues and peers.

Participants will stay in the Green Camp located across the river on the east side of campus. It is a shared community housing built from bamboo and local renewable resources. There are different types of accommodations in the Green Camp: the Lodge, Yurt, Islands Room, and Community Houses (where you stay will depend on the availability, we’ll announce a few months before the course starts). Each room is equipped with bamboo bunk beds, blankets, towels, mosquito nets - cooled by ceiling fans, shared toilets and bathroom facilities with hot water. The houses were built around the perimeter and a common area in the middle. Laundry service is available with extra charge, please contact the team member upon arrival.

The price of the course is all inclusive and we highly recommend this. Staying together with your peers builds connections and bonds that last for a lifetime. For those who are already residing in Bali, you can choose to return to your own home in the evening but there won’t be any discount on the price.

We will serve a variety of tasty Indonesian and Western vegetarian organic food, prepared by Green School’s amazing kitchen team. Coffee, tea and snacks are also provided throughout the course. Any dietary restrictions can be listed on the registration form.

Participants are expected to be punctual and encouraged to participate in the whole program. If for some reason participants need to leave and couldn’t attend some sessions, please make sure to inform us in advance.

Certificates of Completion will be given to participants at the end of the course.

REGISTRATION

The Green Educator Course focuses on teachers and school administrators, but we are also excited to welcome people who would like to learn more about education for sustainability and sustainable lifestyle.

Courses have varied in size but we try not to exceed 25 participants in one course, to maintain a more intimate and conducive learning environment.

We love having groups participate but do not offer group rates or discounts.

Please see our policy.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

We have our first aid stations with experienced nurses on standby during regular school hours and there are a number of hospitals that we can call on in case of an emergency and also a 24-hours security team on campus. Emergency procedures will be discussed upon arriving at Green School. For any further concerns about health related issues, please contact us directly.

Feel free to step away from the group at any time for your religious practices. We’re happy to suggest a quiet location on campus to step away to as well. There are some church and mosques nearby but participants have to arrange their own transport to and from there.

Participants will be on campus during school hours but we make all efforts not to disturb classes and regular programmes of students and teachers. There may be moments built into the course where participants will engage with our students but these will be planned and discussed. Please be aware not to take pictures of our students and teachers as this is against our School policies.

We do not provide any childcare and we ask that you don’t invite visitors or children to the campus during the course for community privacy and safety reasons.  All visitors may join a public tour of the School which runs from 9 - 10 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Details about the public tour can be found by visiting our website here.

We aim to offer the programme 3 times a year (excluding any potential customized courses).
