Multiple groups are coming together at Georgia State University to promote sustainability on campus this week!

There is also an ongoing campaign among student organizations, like Sustainable Energy Tribe, and the student government to assess student interest through surveys and get some of the student fee reallocated to cover sustainable initiatives.
