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!

Recycle to Win! 

greenhandedRecycleMania is an eight week competition among colleges in the US and Canada to see who can recycle the most. From 2/7 – 4/2/16, Georgia Southern will be weighing all campus recycling and reporting the numbers weekly. With your help, we can recycle more than ever, and will compete for the Sunbelt Championship! CfS will host recycling events throughout RecycleMania and we will be looking to catch you green handed! If we spot you using a reusable mug/water bottle or recycling, you will win a prize and we’ll post your face on social media. You can help Georgia Southern be True Blue and Green Too!   

To see all of information, please go to our RecyleMania page
