Our Vision

  • Georgia Tech graduates are using their disciplinary expertise to help “create sustainable communities” where humans and nature flourish, now and in the future
  • Universities around the globe are asking, “What does Georgia Tech think?” about the role that a technological institute can play in creating sustainable communities
