At the Energy and Sustainability Extravaganza at The George Washington University (GW) on February 24, 2017, attendees learned about what universities in the DC area are doing to reach their sustainability goals and commitments.

At some point in almost any project, whether in higher education or elsewhere, partners are needed.
