Tulum has always been known for its biodiversity and Mayan culture. It has recently been recognized for its efforts in green living. Designs and awareness of working with the environment and not against it have become the norm. These changes have been so positive that Tulum has attracted the world’s attention and has been chosen as the location for the world’s fourth Green School.
John and Cynthia Hardy began Green School in 2006 with the hope of creating the “change-makers” of the future. They wanted their children to attend a school with a vision of a holistic learning community. Compelled to take up the environmental call to action, they set out to create a school that educates for sustainability. A collaborative effort opened the first of its kind – Green School Bali in September of 2008.
Green School Tulum
Now, joining the schools in New Zealand and South Africa, the fourth school is also being built in Tulum. Green School Tulum will open its doors in Fall 2021. Located in the heart of Aldea Zama, the Selvazama community is a holistic residential project within the lush jungle of Tulum. Situated only a few miles from the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean and the pristine beaches of the Riviera Maya. Green School Tulum will follow the mission of creating a global community of learners making our world more sustainable.
The philosophy of a student-guided approach encourages students to become critical thinkers who can innovate and create an impact in a world that requires us to reconcile our humanity with the natural order.
Furthermore, the building will utilize low impact materials and will incorporate bamboo and locally sourced woods and materials, as well as permaculture principles into its operation and design. It is also the hope that the Green School’s example will inspire other schools in Mexico.
Besides, Tulum is home to a beautiful earthly paradise located right in the middle of the jungle: Selvazama. This sustainable development is an ambitious project with a whole new concept of lodging, private properties, and tourism. It is a community with incredible green constructions in the middle of the jungle. As a result, residents can enjoy nature and live surrounded by beautiful plants and animals. This majestic space satisfies strict standards of sustainability with each of its constructions.
Art Park – This space is for people who want to relax and coexist. It has a total area of 135,000 m2 of pure jungle.
Holistic Center – The holistic center goes beyond a simple spa. This sanctuary provides wellness for the mind, body, and spirit. You can find here a vast quantity of services from aesthetic and genetic medicine, to yoga classes. It will also provide experts in nutrition focused on vegan and organic diets. The holistic center serves Selvazama’s residents in restoring their inner peace.
