Welcome to the Center for Sustainability

We support the definition of sustainability which can be traced to the 1987 United Nations Conference:
"Sustainability:  the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

The Center for Sustainability is taking a leading role in education and training; preparing Charlotte and Mecklenburg County for a sustainable future.

We invite you to check out the tabs to the left, learn more about our programs and join us as we foster sustainable development and explore new green technologies while protecting our natural resources.

"Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species - man - acquired significant power to alter the nature of the world."
