John spoke at C2 Montreal in 2014. His talk has now been released.

You might call John Hardy the Bamboo Missionary. Since having his life “ruined” by Al Gore’s global warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, the Bali-based Canadian jewelry designer has been on a mission to help save the planet. His solution? The Green School, a pioneering, open-air educational centre that blends holism with a traditional British curriculum. Built entirely of locally- grown bamboo and surrounded by gardens that students tend themselves, the Green School currently teaches some 275 kids from more than 40 countries to see the world as a complex, inter-related whole. John calls the Green School a “Cathedral to Green Education”. He’s the kind of missionary you can feel good about.
