What is Earthbound?
Earthbound is Green School, Bali’s traveling semester program. Attracting students from around the world, Earthbound offers a holistic, universal approach to education for sustainability through journalism, performance, cultural exchange and climate action.
Earthbound is more than just a school program; it seeks to involve students in the world around them, combining Green School’s rigorous high school curriculum with social and environmental activism in order to create a community of aware and motivated students.
Students on Earthbound earn school credit while exploring the world and learning in a way that allows them to both pursue their passion and get a world-class education.
Earthbound students gain a deeper understanding of the complexity of global issues, get their hands dirty, and connect with others involved in the global movement for a sustainable world.
Students attending Earthbound learn on the road while developing their multiple intelligences: intellectual, kinesthetic, interpersonal, and emotional, helping students to grow in a holistic way. Earthbound recognizes that there should be no divide between subjects: the best classes are those that intertwine algebra and literature, biology and journalism, history and theater.
Earthbound offers an education without borders…inspiring students and invigorating them with a new passion for learning. Our learning is rigorous and relevant. We encourage our students to find deep meaning in our experiences and to take an active role in creating a world that works for all. We believe that with knowledge comes responsibility.
