About Graphic



The GW Sustainability Collaborative is just that—a collaboration between the many institutes and centers, hundreds of faculty and students, and dozens of local and national community partners working to find innovative solutions to the pressing challenges of our times.

At the Sustainability Collaborative, we promote interdisciplinary research and teaching because we know that sustainability is not something that can be achieved from just one perspective. We believe that partnerships between universities, businesses, non-profits, and governments are vital in piloting and deploying new technologies and policy solutions.
