Study abroad and sustainability in the world's largest city

Students in the Japan Program on Sustainable Development traveled all over Japan during the first week of the program and saw some iconic landmarks, like this "floating" torii gate on the island Miyajima. The group includes students from Georgia Tech, Tokyo Tech in Japan, and faculty members from Tech’s College of Engineering. (Photo: Alexandra Akosa)

Tokyo, the largest metropolitan area in the world, is home to almost 38 million people. While “sustainability” might not be the word that comes to mind upon hearing about a city of this size and magnitude, the city manages to grow without depleting of Japan’s natural resources. That's why Tokyo was chosen as the setting for the new Japan Program on Sustainable Development — a collaboration between Georgia Tech's College of Engineering and Tokyo Tech.
