Our mission is to be a catalyst for sustainability change in Winston Salem area and surrounding region.  We strive to create a more sustainable community, economy and environment through collaborative partnerships.  


Sustainability definition: meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.  By balancing social equity, ecological health and economic vitality, we create a livable community now and tomorrow.  

The Sustainability Resource Center assists the community with the adoption of sustainability measures through targeted research, access to vetted and reviewed information, appropriate referrals to additional resources, and low- or no-cost advisory services. The center provides quality research and qualified information in response to community requests, designs and conducts educational workshops, enhances educational partnerships between institutions and the community, and performs on a self-sustaining basis.

“The City of Winston-Salem is committed to becoming a more sustainable community.”

 - Mayor Allen Joines, City of Winston-Salem
