Working with the Upper School Sustainability Club, Riverdale Country School has adopted the following policy statement:
We, the Riverdale Country School Community, commit to the following:
- Upholding sustainable practices
- Educating about Sustainability
- Considering how our individual and institutional actions affect the environment
We acknowledge that we, as both a school and a community of individuals, have a responsibility to recognize the state of our planet and the actions we can take to help, however small. We also acknowledge that we, as a community of educators and learners, must reflect upon our role as global citizens to learn and teach through a sustainable lens. We will think about Sustainability in an environmental, societal, and economic context.
