This study attempts to identify the potential of utilizing the Outstanding Universal Values (OUVs) of Subak through a qualitative study involving teachers and students in primary and secondary education. In-depth interviews and focus group discussions were conducted to dig deeper into the individual perception and group understanding of the use of OUVs to be part of the teaching materials and to design recontextualization of English learning, particularly in Bali. The results showed that both teachers and students demonstrate a positive attitude toward the possibility of designing recontextualization of the subak’s OUVs in English teaching and learning. Several teaching materials are proposed, namely environmental vocabulary, a part of speech that students can use to describe the environment, farming, and the beautiful scenery of the natural surroundings. Meanwhile, the learning activities considered contextual and authentic are speaking, writing, reading, and listening, with specific topics like describing the places of interest in the students’ village, farming activities, and the practical role of Lake Batur as the supreme water source of subak in Bali by conducting fieldwork to the lake. The perspectives and expectations of the students were in line with the teachers’ views. From the student's perspective, they felt that the OUVs are important aspects to be utilized in learning English. The results of the investigation may also be beneficial to demonstrate how the design of a green textbook may be potentially realized in Indonesian education.
