Our Mission: The Sustainability Center (tSC) is an inclusive community space that promotes resources and tools to engage conversation, education, and the creation of an ecologically sound, socially just, and prosperous future. The Sustainability Center is a place where local residents, professionals, visitors, and students can learn about the broad range of sustainability projects and programs underway in Tompkins County and the Finger Lakes Region. We place particular emphasis on activities and programs that simultaneously advance the three pillars of sustainability: economic prosperity, social equity and environmental stewardship and show how they are interrelated.
