Georgia Tech needs more sustainable food options!
Students Organizing for Sustainability is a student organization at Georgia Institute of Technology devoted to running grassroots campaigns on a wide range of environmental, political, and social issues in order to promote the greater goal of building a more sustainable campus, community, and world. These issues may include, but will not be limited to: improving on-campus recycling; bringing more nutritious, local, and organic foods to our dining halls; converting the shuttles to run on renewable fuels; and working to bring new sources of clean, efficient energy to the institute. SOS will also look to form coalitions with other like-minded organizations to create an effective network of student activists. Members will develop leadership and organizational skills that will allow them continue advocating sustainable practices long after graduation. We plan to reach our goals by holding weekly meetings, fundraising, organizing service projects, building support for our campaigns within the Georgia Tech community, raising on-campus awareness about issues related to sustainability, and working with the Student Government Association and other institutional authorities.
