Matthew Jenkin from The Guardian interviewed John Hardy on the Green School’s classroom design  for this great article on sustainable schools.

He explains that the open design of the classrooms means there are more distractions for students from the outside environment – a tropical downpour or a lizard crawling across the floor, for example – but teachers are encouraged to integrate these into lessons to make learning more exciting and engaging.

“Everywhere in the world kids are learning how to be green but in completely unsustainable environments,” Hardy says. “Green school kids are learning about the same things, but they are living it instead.
