Concord’s Fenn School participates in sustainability contest

The Fenn School in Concord recently wrapped up a monthlong faculty and staff competition designed to teach students about sustainable habits in and out of school. Using the sustainability-themed mobile app JouleBug, Fenn faculty and staff logged their sustainable behaviors in the classroom, at home, and on the go. JouleBug users earn points and badges for everyday sustainable activities, like recycling, reducing wasted water, and conserving energy. Cameren Cousins, Fenn’s sustainability coordinator, initiated the contest after learning about JouleBug online. While the official competitors were faculty and staff, Fenn’s 320 boys in grades 4 through 9 were also engaged in the contest. “The faculty wanted to model sustainable behavior for our boys,” said Cousins. “We ask them to do a lot. We wanted to show them that the adults in the Fenn community are just as committed to sustainable behavior as the boys.”
