Students for Sustainability, the University of Arizona

Students for Sustainability is an ASUA student government program that works to engage the student body in order to cultivate environmental literacy from many perspectives. SFS works to do this through the ASUA model of empowering student leaders, advancing social justice and equality, and in pursuing institutionalized sustainability at the University of Arizona and within the Tucson community. Sustainability: Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony. Sustainability means that humans are a part of natural systems and must meet their social, economic and other needs while also allowing for the needs of non-human creatures and functioning ecosystems now and for subsequent generations. Sustainability is intersectional and can only be achieved through interdisciplinary thought and action, incorporating all parts of human society and the natural world. Sustainability must also be progressing social justice, not continuing to marginalize the already marginalized in terms of race, class, gender, ability, and sexuality.
