Welcome to the Center for Sustainability!

We welcome everyone on campus, in Decatur and metro-Atlanta to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink with Agnes Scott.
 As part of our mission to live honorably, we accept the challenge of environmental stewardship, commit to education and leadership in sustainability, and seek to balance what the college takes from and returns to the world’s natural resources.

Sustainability is a major focus in today's world, and will continue to be relevant in the future. It includes how we relate to the globe, and what we can do to understand the impact of global changes, and how to be aware of the effects we have on our surroundings. 

Together we can spread sustainability, and the ideal of being green, so that these concepts become customary instead of clichéd. We can work together to make these buzz words a permanent part of the collective vocabulary, and to raise awareness of the importance of a sustainable Earth. By starting at a local level and on a smaller scale, we can help change the world. 

Get involved with sustainability.
