Sustainable Schools

Concord mothers are organizing for safer, healthier, cleaner schools and buses!

Our Goal

An All-Electric & Net Zero Middle School

Concord is in the process of designing a new middle school to replace two aging facilities. This is an opportunity for Concord to become a leader in energy efficient school design! Mothers Out Front members and allies want the Town of Concord to design and build a school that is:

  • All-electric (fossil fuel-free)
  • Highly energy efficient
  • Net zero (equipped with solar panels & energy storage)
  • Constructed with building materials that have low embodied carbon

Mothers Out Front knows that schools powered by renewable energy are safer, healthier, and smarter for our kids. That is why we’re pushing officials to build its first all-electric, net zero fossil fuel free school. Help us bring sustainable schools to our community!

Background

In 2017, the residents of Concord overwhelmingly passed a Town Meeting Article (Article 51) which committed the Town of Concord to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050 (from a 2008 baseline). The largest contributor to the Town’s greenhouse gas emissions is from the built environment (60%). In order to meet our emissions reduction goals, the Town of Concord must systematically replace and/or retrofit inefficient buildings with efficient ones.
