Chapter Projects

ESW projects design, build, and implement solutions to sustainability issues, often with a focus on energy and the environment. Chapters select their own project topics and locations for implementation based on the interests of their members, and the resources and guidance available to them at their respective universities. Some chapters chose to focus primarily on sustainability issues on campus or in their local community, while others work to implement sustainable development solutions for communities in the developing world. Many have project portfolios that include a mix of local and international efforts. Topics vary widely across chapters, but include areas such as clean energy generation and energy savings, water and wastewater treatment/management, and the development of green infrastructure. To carry out these projects, chapters often partner with on-campus staff, community organizations, or other sustainability organizations that have experience and established relationships in the communities where they work.

You can view many of the projects completed or in progress in this directory, and we encourage you to contact the chapter to learn more or help implement a similar project where you are!
