BALI [7/11/18]: The Green Educator Course, a professional development program for educators around the globe to learn about education for sustainability, has been announced by global education non-profit HundrED, as one of 100 most inspiring K12 innovations across the world. The Green Educator Course was one of the innovations selected from 36 countries to be recognized.

HundrED aims to share best practice ideas and K12 innovations across borders to help improve the future of education globally. To achieve this, 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.

The Green Educator Course was chosen due to its unique pioneering status and ability to create a scalable impact, reaching as many as 53 countries all around the world, such as Indonesia, Hongkong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, China, Japan, UK, USA, South Africa, Russia and UAE. The Green Educator Course was first initiated in 2013 and the main focus of this five-days immersive program is to learn about holistic learning & incorporating “IRespect” values into their own curriculum (Integrity, Responsibility, Empathy, Sustainability, Peace, Equity, Community, Trust) as what Green School has done.

Sanne van Oort, the Programme Coordinator at The Green Educator Course said: “We’re so pleased to have been selected as one of HundrED’s 100 global innovations. The Green Educator Course was created to ensure teachers are able to engage learners, and improve outcomes. Being offered the opportunity to extend this beyond Indonesia using HundrED’s platform, a network of global educators and innovators, is amazing and we are excited to see just how much further our work can be scaled.”

The selected 100 K12 innovations cover various fields of education from learning environments and holistic wellbeing to collaborative learning and game-based education, as well as a range of themes including small teacher-led practices, ambitious not-for-profit initiatives, viral edtech products and unique whole school models.

Saku Tuominen, CEO of HundrED, said: “Spreading innovations such as The Green Educator Course across borders can be a gamechanger for education, worldwide. We will continue to encourage as many stakeholders as possible including schools, educators, administrators, students and organizations to get involved so that we can work towards a positive future.”

To share the K12 innovations, HundrED has created an online platform so that educators around the world can trial and review The Green Educator Course, and all the other innovations using the resources, for free. To explore the global innovations, please visit: www.hundred.org

About:

The Green Educator Course developed by Green School Bali in 2013. These courses are 3-5 day experiences for educators who are seeking to learn more about Green School’s holistic, student-centred, nature-based curriculum. The Green Educator course brings together like-minded educators from around the world with interests in progressing education in our changing environmental, social, and economic global landscape. The program provides opportunities to not only learn from what Green School has to offer, but creates a platform to explore, share and expand ideas with others. Learning is a collaborative process between Green School and the participants. Ultimately, the program will encourage educators to learn about the sustainability compass and its four elements: Nature, Economy, Society and Wellness and how to integrate them into the learning process.
