Mission Statement:
“Sustainability is continued economic and social development which does not cause damage to the environment and natural resources. Our mission is to educate students, faculty, staff, and the Cape community about such issues and encourage community involvement.”

Purpose Statement:
Students for Sustainability is a social organization focused around the concept of Sustainability. In a sustainable world, we imagine society would celebrate cultural diversity and increase the biological diversity and complexity of the ecosystems on which we all depend. Simultaneously, we would have stabilized population and resource consumption at a level that is within the carrying capacity of Earth's ecosystems. To attain this, we must reinvent the world socially, economically and environmentally. At Cape Cod Community College, Students for Sustainability will integrate this philosophy with the current socio-economic and environmental issues of our community. It is our goal to educate students and faculty and implement these ideas into the curriculum as much as possible.

Are you a Student for Sustainability? This new club is now in an organizational process. Passionate Cape Cod Community College students in the arts, sciences, technical, and other fields of study will find opportunities for creativity and networking. The goal is to bring our human activities into balance with our wondrous natural environment, and to promote sustainability on campus and Cape Cod, for healing and for a bright future.
