Changing The Course of the Blog...Green News

The TED Conference (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a U.S private nonprofit foundation best known for its conferences, now held in Europe and Asia as well as the U.S., devoted to what it calls "ideas worth spreading".   Speakers from all over the world are invited to participate in the event and it truly makes it an incredible event if you are lucky enough to go.  I'd like to share two of these speakers with you....

John Hardy- A designer and creator of the Green School in Bali.  He talks about integrating the local culture into a completely green school made of bamboo!  Really cool to see a similar concept of our e-labs project in other parts of the world!

Sir Ken Robinson- is an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources. He discusses how schools are designed by the same people who design sanitariums; prisons; how schools need to be a place of creativity.  Truly an amazing speaker!
