An Annual Environmental Fest at Bali is Coming Up This Year: Sustainable Solutions 2019
We are pleased to announce the coming of annual music, arts, and environmental festival of
Green School Bali, Sustainable Solutions 2019, which will be held on 2-4 May 2019 with the theme
’Connect, Respect, Protect’.
Last year, this festival was successfully carried on and attended by 800 people with 45
international and local speakers and 40 solutions makers.
This time, 5th edition festival focuses on youth connections, activism and Indigenous
wisdom and will involve students from Green School and across Bali, the region and all around
the world. Locating at Green School Bali (Bali Island, Indonesia), the wall-less bamboo school in
the middle of Bali jungle, Sustainable Solutions aims to involve, connect, inspire and equip the
community to live more sustainably.
This three-day festival would be enlivened by inspiring speakers across the world, workshops,
talks, panel discussions, music and dance performances, and artistic activities as well as vendor
showcases, farmers market, and many more. The event is great for childrens and teenagers, as
activities and experiences help to educate them on sustainability and environment. Particularly,
they shall learn about indigenous communities.
