Georgetown’s Office of Sustainability and Earth Commons institute bridge the university’s ambitious sustainability practice with the institute’s environmental education and research capacity to develop urgently-needed, scalable solutions for the campus, local communities and planet.

This collaboration will support Georgetown in leading on actions ranging from campus construction and operations to the goods and services we use, as well as the creation of courses, degrees and scholarship that inform today’s policymakers and shape tomorrow’s environmental leaders.
