    Nov 16 2012: My idea of a green school is very close to John Hardy's school in Bali. The building structure might be impractical because of the unavailability of the materials , varying weather conditions. However ,when the weather permits, the classroom can be moved outdoors. The students need to connect more with nature and feel comfortable in their natural surroundings. Schools and families can encourage and cultivate eco-friendly living and behavior in the students.
