To promote our mission of engaging Blacksburg residents in healthier, more sustainable lives, Sustainable Blacksburg partners with local groups and organizations to put on events throughout the community. Most notably, we partner with the Town of Blacksburg and Virginia Tech every September to celebrate Sustainability Week, in an effort to bridge the gap between efforts in our wonderful town and the university we share it with. Sustainability Week was recognized at the state level in 2010 with a Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award, and at the national level in 2013 with the Best of Green Schools Best Collaboration award. You’ll also find us at town festivals like Solstice Festival and Steppin’ Out!
