Sustainability Week is a week-long event held by Virginia Tech in partnership with the Town of Blacksburg and the local citizen’s group Sustainable Blacksburg. The goal of Sustainability Week is to celebrate all of the wonderful progress both the Town and the university have made in creating a more sustainable community, educate students and citizens alike about how to make their personal lives more sustainable, and motivate them to take real, tangible actions towards being a model green citizen.

Founded in 2007, Sustainability Week was recognized at the state level in 2010 and again in 2016 with Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards, and at the national level in 2013 with the Best of Green Schools Best Collaboration award.
