Green School Bali - Change Maker Challenge
Your chance to activate a new generation of green leaders!
It’s game on for sustainable solutions and ridiculous rewards!
It’s not every day that you get the chance to support a new generation of young green leaders who are taking matters into their own hands and developing sustainable solutions now. Green School students are taking action - from school BioBuses that run on used cooking oil, to waste solutions, growing food and establishing renewable energy solutions, they are on it! Local Balinese and children from all corners of the globe have come together at Green School and they are mobilized and ready for more action, to create a better world for themselves and future generations. It’s up to us to give them the chance.
The students of the not-for-profit Green School, are sending a big shout-out your way to join forces with them and become the change makers the world needs.
We can help you make a difference in the world. Join us in raising $500K to fund Green School scholarships for Balinese children and to build a multi-purpose Community Innovation Hub that will deliver better waste management solutions and scale up youth activism activities locally and globally.
“…I have visited many different places and many schools but Green School is the most unique and impressive school I have ever visited." Ban Ki-Moon, former UN Secretary General.
We have a lot to do, and in partnership with you, we can do it. We are talking about serious, grassroots action, with seriously impressive impacts. Take a look at some of what we have achieved so far:
- 40 Green School scholarships to Indonesian students empowering them to be the change they want to see in their own country and beyond.
- Engaged 328 students from local Balinese partner schools in Language and Sustainability Learning.
- Established a waste management and recycling facility on a mission towards zero waste. Over 1 ton of trash each month is sorted, re-used or recycled - saving it from ending in the ocean and landfills.
- Waste management solutions rolled-out to six local schools in Bali, reaching over 4,000 students.
- Reduced 3.5 tons of CO2 emissions per month through the student-led BioBus transport service.
- Student activists represented the voice of youth at Climate Change Conferences (COP21, Paris and COP22 Morocco) and the Conference of Youth (COY11).
- Raised awareness of the waste crisis across Indonesia through a performing arts production, ‘Noble Material’, led by Indonesian students, for Indonesian students.
Let’s do even more, together! Every single donation will be used to support local children and waste-related educational and learning activities. We happily share all our creative sustainable solutions with the 100,000+ people who connect with Green School each year. With your donation we will:
- Build a Community and Waste Recycling Education Centre (Innovation Hub) - over 700 children will be able to incubate, investigate, implement and share even better waste management solutions. $100,000 of campaign money will allow us to build this and fling the doors open to students and their ideas.
- Expand waste management solutions - let’s turn even more trash into desirable treasures by expanding the current reuse-recycle program. Turning plastic waste into usable products and art, up-cycling fashion design using repurposed/used clothing, maker-space equipment to repair household items, plus more, can all happen with $50,000 of campaign money to kit-out the innovation lab with the right equipment.
- Activate young people through the arts: we know that performing arts is a powerful platform to educate and inspire youth movements to tackle real world problems. We can scale-up performances, such as ‘Noble Material’, take them on the road even more, promote activism and create kits for other schools to use with $50,000 of campaign money.
- Activate more local change makers within Indonesia: let’s give even more opportunities for Balinese children to access an international standard of education and be the change they want to see in their island, their country and the world. Indonesia faces some of the world’s biggest environmental problems and $300,000 of campaign money will fully fund the current 31 full-time Green School scholars enrolled and allow us to welcome 3 more scholarship students into the School.
