The Campus is the Classroom

The Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in the belief that we have the opportunity to present all of our visitors, students and collaborators with an incredibly unique environment.  Situated in southern Eleuthera, The Bahamas, our remote location has always necessitated a high level of self-sustainability, our community size is ideal for the creation and testing viability of working models, and our vision demands that we live well in this place.  Many of our successes have been centered around environmental management: our water supply is harvested via rainwater, we boast one of the largest renewable energy systems in the country, we strive to be a zero waste campus, we manufacture our own biodiesel.

We’re building upon those successes, looking to new challenges,  and continuing to educate in one of the world’s most sustainable classrooms, our campus.
