Sustainable and green practices are a growing concern in today’s world. Specifically, how does a society meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs?

That is the basis of Rio’s academic certificate in sustainability and ecological literacy. You can gain an understanding of sustainable living practices, and the skills necessary to become ecologically and environmentally aware throughout this program.

As human consumption of resources continues, green living becomes an increasingly important global concept. With an understanding of sustainability and environmental awareness, students trained in this area can work in a variety of fields such as industry, consultancy, utilities, regulatory agencies and non-profits, as well as local, state and federal governments.
