Green school students Dali and Finn Schonfelder attended school in India in 2011. Every year they returned to the same place but when Dali turned 13 she discovered something that she did not like- most of her friends were missing. They discovered that after 12 years old the government stops paying for the compulsory school uniform which causes enormous school drop out levels in these poor communities. Wanting to help, they started designing t shirts to raise money to buy school uniforms for their friends so they could stay in school. 3 years ago Nalu started out as a green school grade 8 quest project and now they sell in 17 countries and have gained some international recognition on their path to keep the world's poor children in school.

Alexandre Tsuk - Propelling Businesses Into a Wealth of Sustainability

BookGreener is the invisible hand that propels tourism businesses in solving social and environmental management challenges in their communities.

Facilitator Biography:

Overcrowded yet awe-inspiring places, inquisitive and discerning travellers, hot-blooded yet committed staff, and a feast of hectic yet innovative kitchen, properties and suppliers.

These are the things I take from my years spent setting up and managing hotels, restaurants and guiding services from Paris to Vientiane, via Delhi.

But I also witnessed paradises slowly vanish beneath my eyes. And that got me closer to the people I worked with, and the places I lived in. I started seeing through different eyes. That is when I decided that I wanted to turn the hospitality industry into a force for good. So I seized the day, and set out to create the booking.com of sustainability.

I reached out to my business community, and we got together to activate change! It is this inspirational, impactful and successful journey that I bring with me, to take BookGreener to the next level.

Rodney Westerlaken - How children can change the world, after they what is going on...

Soul surf project Bali is around on Bali for the past 10 years.. In 10 years we have educated more than 1000 underprivileged children about how to stand up for the environment and to be a soul surfer. A soul surfer is someone who enjoys the sport of surfing, but takes care of others and the world around him/her. In 10 years time we had big successes, but also major setbacks. We have role models, children from orphanages that became instructors, surf photographers, etc, but above all: still protect the environment. Even though the program is small and quite unknown, the impact on the children that have joined the program is big!
