Welcome to the Global sustainability (G.S.) Community of Interest. G.S. involves crucial issues (Technology, Ecology, Ecosystems, Energy, Water, Food, Population, Civil Systems, Policy, Architecture, Socialization, Transportation, Industry, Health and others) that impact us all in the local, regional and global realms.  Especially in Louisiana there are significant needs based upon these issues and they can be expanded to other geographic areas easily.

This is a wide-reaching area of research with many potential social, educational, economic and policy implications.
