MCS Sustainability Committee
After a very successful clothing swap this past week, the MCS Sustainability Committee is glad to continue its Earth Day celebrations with two more events coming up shortly:
  1. Zero Waste Workshop, Wednesday, April 24, at 6 p.m., MCS Library and community space

The Sustainability Committee will offer a full evening of activities, including:
  • a crash course on starting a zero-waste journey
  • practical demos (e.g. jam making, yoghurt making, mending and easy swaps)
  • and the clothing swap finale 
A literature corner and an advocacy table will also be available, with the support of our partners from It’s Easy Being Green, an Upper West Side non-profit organization.
Children are welcome to attend the entire workshop.
Register here by April 23!

  1. Parent-Led Forum (PLF) on racial, social and environmental Justice, Wednesday, May 1, at 6 p.m., MCS Library
A Parent-Led Forum (PLF) presented jointly by the Sustainability Committee and the Racial Justice Committee, will bring together amazing guest experts who will explore how the three pillars of the school, namely diversity, equity and inclusion, social justice & activism, as well as farm-based education & sustainability, intersect. 

The presentations will put the spotlight on how children of color and of socially disadvantaged backgrounds are disproportionately impacted by environmental challenges. It will be followed by a Q&A, and attendees will be called to action. 

Take a look at the event’s concept note for more details, and register here by April 30 to attend the event.

Child care will be provided on a first come, first served basis, upon separate registration by Sunday April 28 at 8 p.m.

Anyone in the MCS community can join the Sustainability Committee!
