The Plymouth Public Schools has made great strides in reducing overall energy consumption and costs through conservation efforts, efficiency upgrades, and renewable energy project development. These accomplishments have helped financially by offsetting other rising costs and have also demonstrated the commitment this district has towards sustainability.
Though there are many definitions of sustainability available today, a commonly accepted definition would include meeting the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. With this definition is the realization that the world is interconnected across social, economic, and environmental boundaries.
With this understanding of sustainability, and through our actions and instruction, we hope to demonstrate for all Plymouth students how an organization such as ours and the individuals within it can have an impact and promote positive change both locally and globally.
