We are pleased to provide this opportunity for our community to learn more about our recently approved, regenerative-inspired LCS Campus Master Plan.
"Designs informed by regenerative design principles will help prepare LCS students for a world significantly impacted by the effects of rapid climate change...With every new intervention on campus, we ask the question – how can this action be informed by regenerative design principles that help to heal the campus and move toward positive, reciprocal outcomes, advancing our school value of environmental responsibility? Regardless of how small or large, each action on campus contributes to the health and wellbeing of the entire learning community." - Christine Lintott
