Energy, Environment, & Sustainability Committee seeks to build new sustainability measures across Georgetown spaces, as well as build knowledge about sustainable living among graduate students. We host events, councils, and public awareness campaigns with students, alumni, faculty, and non-campus partners, including stakeholders from private firms working to make meaningful change to build a better future for our planet.
