Have you completed a sustainability or environmental report or project? Looking for inspiration for your next sustainability-related project? Need guidance on where to find sources? Or are you just interested in reading past student projects dealing with sustainability? Well, look no further…

The Office of Sustainability Student Project Database in the Tufts Digital Library provides students with the means to view each other’s work and learn from previous projects. It can be used to inspire new ideas or build off the work of others.

Additionally, the Office of Sustainability has a file cabinet full of student and faculty sustainability-related projects stemming across disciplines and stretching all they way back to the 1990’s. Stop by today to sign-out a project to take home to review.

You can also check out a full listing of these older projects here. Projects are organized alphabetically and also indexed by subject matter at the bottom of the document.
