Students for a Sustainable Stanford was formed in the Spring of 2000 to encourage green building on campus and to reduce Stanford’s greenhouse gas emissions. Since then we have grown and evolved into one of the most prominent environmental-focused student groups on campus and have extended our work to all kinds of issues, from local topics like water and food to international problems like climate change.
