Powering Down: Student Engagement in K-12 Schools, with Kate Crosby
Tuesday, June 28, 7:30 - 9 AM Harvey Wheeler Community Center, Clock Tower Room, West Concord
In May, 2012 the Acton-Boxborough Regional High School (ABRHS) was awarded the prestigious Eco-Schools USA Green Flag award, in recognition of the school’s outstanding sustainability achievements and an unusual level of student leadership and engagement that made this happen. ABRHS was the second school system in Massachusetts and the fourth in the nation to be honored in this way.
This month’s speaker, Kate Crosby, is the Energy Manager for the ABRHS. In that capacity she facilitates a variety of energy and sustainability initiatives, including a focus on behavior-based energy conservation. She was instrumental in creating and implementing the school system’s award-winning energy conservation program. She is also the lead author of “Powering Down: A Toolkit for Behavior-Based Energy Conservation in K-12 Schools,” a white paper that documents successful behavior-based programs in five K-12 schools across the country. She has a Master’s Degree in Resource Management and Conservation from Antioch University New England.
Come learn how a school system can go beyond having “green” features in their facilities to having a thoroughly committed top-down sustainability policy and practice, with significant engagement of both school staff and the student body.
As usual, come right at 7:30 AM to enjoy our delicious hot beverages and local breakfast goodies, and to connect with other sustainability advocates. The event is free and open to the public. You can expect a lively dialogue after the presentation.

Climate Justice Film Series
Oil and Water
Tuesday, June 28, 6:30 PM
St. Anne’s-in-the Fields Church 147 Concord Road, Lincoln
"Oil and Water offers no easy solutions to the problems of oil contamination and the presence of the oil industry in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Instead, this documentary searches for answers through the lives, pressures and actions of two young men, who are growing up with a heavy burden of decision: to negotiate, to regulate or to resist the oil companies. Watch it, and ask yourself: how could I resolve the ongoing injuries of oil? Then remember that these two young men are working and studying to be the leaders that they want to be--in order to solve the harms of an industry, or ills that were not created by them and in many cases that predate them." Patricia Widener, Associate Professor of Sociology, Florida Atlantic University, Author, Oil Injustice: Resisting and Conceding a Pipeline in Ecuador
"This film offers a compelling narrative of the unique social, cultural, and activism experiments of two young men whose political commitments are entangled with the complex and dangerous system of oil production in Ecuador...[This is] a sophisticated argument about why such struggles matter and why their stories should be shared. In the words of David Poritz, the experiments of the Cofán and Equitable Origins have been launched to address a very real issue: the 'indirect genocide' of oil. The question is no longer whether it is possible to talk about sustainable oil; the question is how to make it a reality." Gabriela Valdivia, Assistant Professor of Geography, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
This film series is free and open to the public
