Talking about Climate Change

Talking about Climate Change

By Avery Miller - Milton ‘20

In the Independent School Sustainability Coalition, Milton Academy, as well as countless other schools, are working towards being more sustainable and environmentally conscious. Our schools have implemented composting, single-stream recycling, reusable water bottles, and more. While these solutions are great, they also present a problem: they feel distant and disconnected.

Stewardship through Responsible Consumption

Stewardship through Responsible Consumption

By Rwick Sarkar - St. Mark’s

This past summer, I spent a week at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland at the Young Environmental Stewards Conference. It was a great experience during which I had the chance to meet other like-minded high school students from across the country and get first-hand experience in the field by collecting soil and water samples, observing professionals bird-band, and boarding the college’s research vessel on the Chestertown River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay.
