John Hardy is renown for having unconventional ideas and making them happen.
After graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design, John set off to travel the world and settled in Bali.
In 1975, he started a small jewelry business that grew into an international company.
In 2007, John stopped working in the company to dedicate his time on advocating for and building a more sustainable world through education and design.
As his first major project, he and his wife Cynthia conceived and created the Green School in Bali, Indonesia to deliver pioneering education for the future with a curriculum based on the Three Frame Day by Alan Wagstaff.
The school commits to providing internationally recognized academic education that prepares the students with the ability to be competitive and successful in the wider world.
The uniqueness of the school lies in the integration of traditional subjects, creative arts and green studies wrapped in rich layers of experiential, environmental, and entrepreneurial learning.
