ECo Newsletter

The ECo Newsletter is intended to inform, excite and engage on all things environment and sustainability at Georgetown University and beyond. This month, we focus on Earth Week events, affiliated faculty research and new ways to engage with the Earth Commons and our collaborators.

This Earth Day and every day, we wish you the opportunity to appreciate our planet and join together to protect it.
