Scholars, Community Partners Come Together to Create a More Sustainable Charlotte

City of Charlotte, Clean Air Carolina, Carolinas HealthCare System... these are just a few of the places our Sustainability Scholars have worked this summer to address critical sustainability issues. The 10 scholars were embedded with a variety of community partners to work on a wide range of projects, all with the goal of enhancing the quality of life in the region—check out our #SustainableDavidson Snapchat story to hear directly from the students as they share their summer experiences, or tune in on Friday, July 28, at 11:45 a.m. on Facebook Live as the scholars deliver their final presentations from The Duke Endowment in Charlotte.

The Sustainability Scholars program is a summer leadership program that immerses students with private, public or nonprofit community partners to engage in real-world sustainable projects. Learn more about the program and our 2017 scholars.
