Bali Training the World’s Green Leaders

UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon Visits Bali’s Green School and Praises it Revolutionary Commitment to Sustainability


(9/1/2014)

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in Bali to address world leaders at the Sixth Global Forum of the Alliance of Civilization, paid a visit to the internationally renowned Green School near Ubud to witness the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on “Green Schools for Sustainable Development” between Green School Bali, the National REDD+ Agency (Agency for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation) and UNORCID (United Nations Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia).

The MoU establishes the framework for collaboration between three signatories for a knowledge exchange on embedding sustainable development into education system and structures, which will serve as input for the facilitation and development of green schools across Indonesia. MoU signatories committed to have 1 million ‘green youth ambassadors’ within schools across Indonesia by 2017.

“The signing of this MoU is a truly ground-breaking moment for the National REDD+ Agency and for Indonesia’s future. Sustainability is away of life and all of you in front of me today are pioneering the way, a new way of life and a new identity as true citizens of the world. There is so much to learn from all of you, not only for today but for years to come” said H.E Heru Prasetyo, Head of the Indonesian National REDD+ Agency (BP REDD+).

At the Green School, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with the 412 students of Green School from pre-kindergarten up to high school level, accompanied by leading significant climate change actors that included H.E. Morten Høglund, Norwegian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs; H.E. MStig Traavik, Ambassador of Norway to Indonesia;  John A. Hardy, Founder of the Green School Bali; and John Stewart, Head of School of the Green School Bali.

In a speech at the school, the Secretary-General commended Green School’s commitment to educating the younger generation to become future green leader of the world, adding: “this is the most
unique and impressive school I have ever visited. Thank you very much for your strong commitment and vision to make this world green.”

Before leaving the Green School, the Secretary-General and Mrs. Ban released two of Bali’s endangered Bali Starlings, which are being bred at the Begawan Foundation Breeding Center within the School as an effort to restore the population back from the brink of extinction.
