SLS is an experiential learning program, and partnerships are key to all of our work. SLS collaborates with diverse partners - from communities, nonprofits, government, academia, and business - on key sustainability challenges. We focus especially on building long-term relationships with partners in Atlanta and Georgia. We also collaborate with other units on-campus working to create a sustainable Georgia Tech. We focus especially on implementing the U.N. Sustainable Development goals here at home, through projects advancing four priority issues: Community Health, Equitable & Sustainable Development, Green Infrastructure, and Climate Change & Energy. Through our partnerships, GT students learn to use the knowledge and skills they are acquiring at GT to help "create sustainable communities."
We have too many partners to list all of them - but here is a list of some of the partners we work with most, through our Partnership Advisory Council, Signature Programs, course partnerships, and ongoing projects.
