Welcome to Sustainability Programs 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. 

To find out if you’re living a sustainable life:

We are looking for After School Garden Program Teachers for the Spring 2021 semester!

The Garden Program takes place at five elementary schools in Statesboro, and is a partnership between the Bulloch County Parks and Rec After School program, Sustainability, and the Office of Leadership and Community Engagement. The students learn a variety of topics from plant life cycle, types of soil, pollination and much more to help create a connection with their food as well as better understand how to grow their own food. This is a great opportunity to gain volunteer hours and work with children!  See the graphic below for information and click the link to fill out an application if you are interested.
