RCDS Students and Faculty Present at Sustainability Conference

Ruiy Shah '16, Hanna Kopits '17, and Sustainability Committee Co-Chairs and faculty members Kerry Linderoth and Clemmie Everett presented at the NYSAIS Sustainability Through Student Voices conference at Calhoun School. In their session, entitled "Going Green from the Bottom Up," the RCDS presenters explained the accomplishments of the RCDS Sustainability Initiative, presenting them from an instructive angle to demonstrate not only what steps have been implemented here, but how they took ideas and made them reality. The Sustainability Committee often takes ideas generated from members of the RCDS community (students, faculty, staff), investigates the possibility of implementing the ideas, and advocates for those ideas to the administration. We hope that peer schools learned some techniques to follow our lead in sustainability!
