The New School is committed to environmental and social justice. Here at The New School students explore the interconnections of humans and nature through engagement with a variety of activities that promote balanced change. We encourage students to find ways to apply what they learn about sustainability at the school, at home, and in their greater communities.
Currently, a group of students and teachers are working with the Energy Efficiency Council in Kennebunk to provide research and recommendations to decrease our town’s carbon footprint. Over the summer these groups worked together to encourage and successfully convince the town to sign on with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy.
