Georgetown RISE — A UN Regional Center of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development

Education and Community Engagement

Our goal is to guide our community in science based research and decisionmaking, education, and collaboration between all citizens. We will work hand in hand with community members, educators, businesses, elected officials, and our youth to initiate a sustainable and resilient future for Georgetown County. This will ensure that Georgetown County has an empowered and informed citizenry that safeguards its natural resources for future generations to enjoy a quality of life as we have. The first projects of this group are to develop a Sustainable Business program for the County, promote the Georgetown County Rain Barrel Initiative, and developing Flooding and Sea Level Rise Role-Play-Simulations.
