Student Sustainability Forum

Two students discussing ways to promote sustainability.

Each month, the Office of Sustainability hosts a Student Sustainability Forum to bring together student groups with a commitment to sustainability.

The Student Sustainability Forum is held once a month during the fall semester and more frequently in the spring. In the fall, the forum provides student groups with the opportunity to discuss ways they can better collaborate to achieve common goals. The student groups also meet with the Office of Sustainability team, other representatives from Virginia Tech offices, and the Town of Blacksburg’s sustainability leaders to discover the support these organizations can provide. In the spring, the forum is opened up to Virginia Tech employees as well as community members to facilitate the planning of Earth Week activities. 

Students who are not currently part of a student group, but who are interested in sustainability are welcome to attend to learn about the projects and goals of each group. This allows the forum to serve as a recruiting tool for the organizations involved in sustainability on campus.
