The sustainability resources provided here represent only a smattering of the vast array of relevant books, articles, reports, videos and other materials available.  Arranged in broad themes, the collection reflects the particular perspectives and interests of some of the faculty, staff and students involved in sustainability education at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities.  In addition, the Environment and Sustainability portal contains links to nearly all related academic programs and centers across the University of Minnesota five-campus system.  Suggestions for additional themes or specific materials to include on these pages are always welcome at



The Sustainability Education website is administered by the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment.
