Empowering Leaders to Take Action 

The mission of the Sustainability Initiative is to provide the best education, apply academic rigor to real world problems, and empower leaders everywhere to act, professionally and personally, so that humans and nature can thrive for generations to come.  We do this through the joint efforts of MIT students, faculty, alumni, researchers, and partners in business, government, NGOs, and hybrid organizations. 

If you are ready to make an impact, and can envision a day when both humans and nature can thrive, we hope you will join our community. Let’s make our vision of a just and equitable future a reality in our lifetimes.
