Advocating for clean, healthy, smart schools in Concord
Integrating sustainability into Concord's school system
Mothers Out Front knows that schools powered by renewable energy are safer, healthier, and smarter for our kids. We know that embedding sustainability principles in our educational system will better prepare students for the challenges posed by climate change.
Concord is in the process of designing a new Middle School to replace two aging buildings. This is an opportunity for Concord to build its first Net Zero School and become a leader in energy efficient school design. That is why we are keeping sustainability in the spotlight by pushing for a high-performance, energy-efficient middle school.
We are also partnering with allies to reduce cafeteria food waste, purchase electric school buses, and integrate sustainability into the curriculum.
