Student Sustainability Working Group

Stanford students have a long-standing history of sustainability leadership.  From starting the campus recycling program in 1978 to petitioning fossil fuel divestment from in 2015, students have proven their ability to set ambitious goals and build partnerships to achieve them. Beginning fall 2015, Office of Sustainability formed a Student Sustainability Working Group (SSWG) to support the culture of student innovation and collaboration on campus. 

Every month SSWG brings together students, academic staff, and sustainability staff to share updates, solicit project feedback, and brainstorm partnership opportunities. By increasing communication and project support among organizations, SSWG will help ensure a cohesive approach to sustainability at Stanford. 

Who can be part of the SSWG?

Any student interested in campus sustainability (environment, economic, social) is invited to participate in the SSWG.  You do not have to be part of a sustainability student organization to attend.

When is the next meeting?

The next meeting will focus on best practices for planning sustainable student events.  It take place during the first week of spring term, which is the week of March 28
