Sustainability Week is a long-running collaboration between Sustainable Blacksburg, the Town of Blacksburg, and Virginia Tech's Office of Energy & Sustainability. First held in 2007, this annual week-long series of events in mid-September embodies its tagline, "Celebrate. Educate. Motivate." by highlighting sustainability programs and practices that help build a more sustainable campus and town. This unique and successful partnership, now in its 13th year, has continued to grow and improve over time. The partnership was honored to receive state level recognition as the recipient of a 2016 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award.
If you have an idea for next year's Sustainability Week, which is held during the third week in September, or would like to join the planning team, please contact the town's Sustainability Manager at 540-443-1617 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
