Georgia Tech is not alone in its ambitious mission to transform the way our campus, students and faculty and staff relate to our natural environment.  Join us as we hear about the efforts and experiences of some of our peer institutions in their own efforts to reduce their energy and water consumption and minimize material waste on their campuses.  We will be joined by experts at Stanford University, UC Santa Cruz, and Biohabitats.
