Center for Sustainability
Green Gus with CfS Director Lissa Leege
Welcome to the Center for Sustainability (CfS) at Georgia Southern University. What is Sustainability? Sustainability is often defined as the ability to meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In other words, sustainability requires careful use of our resources, including water, air, energy, biodiversity, soil, etc. so they will be in adequate supply for the foreseeable future. Calculate your ecological footprint! Find out if you’re living a sustainable life!
