Reimagining the Future of Sustainability at MIT

The MIT community has demonstrated remarkable resolve in the face of COVID-19.   In order to explore how this experience has impacted the community’s perspectives on sustainability, the Sustainability Leadership Committee hosted a Community Sustainability Forum on April 30 in collaboration with the Office of Sustainability, the Environmental Solutions Initiative, Terrascope, and the MIT Energy Initiative.  Over 100 participants – students, staff and faculty across the institute – worked in small groups to reflect upon three guiding questions:   

What parts of the response to COVID-19 are positive and aligned with the principles of sustainability?   

What proposals for action on sustainability would we like to bring forward to the MIT community?   

How can MIT lead the way?
