THE POWER OF EDUCATION
Our first initiative: Responsibility awareness through education in Bali.
With more than five million tourists every year, Bali is dependent on tourism for 80% of its economy and is facing a long list of environmental issues; yet most of local people are not aware of how tourism affects the island and its environment.
We truly believe that education is the best instrument through which present and future generations could be involved. Students are the most powerful weapons of our society.
What is needed now in Bali is a global movement with every student in every village learning about challenges and solutions.
At The Punch, we have created a unique program to provide education to more than 5000 students every year around the island in collaboration with the local students of the Kul Kul connection of the Green School.
Thanks to the contribution of this guide members, we are able to provide educational materials to our local kids and students all around Bali.
Our five main educational topics are:
- Waste management & Single use plastic
- Ocean and forest discovery
- Ecosystem conservation
- Natural resources conservation
- Hospitality responsible moves
- The power of a community
We are also contributing to the conservation of Bali wildlife and eco systems working together with multiple organizations.
