Student Green Guide

The Johns Hopkins University Green Guide is made by the Sustainable Hopkins Innovative Projects Student Group for students to learn how to be eco-smart during their time at Johns Hopkins. 


The Office of Sustainability offers internships for current Johns Hopkins University students. Intern programs range from greenhouse gas emissions assessment to outreach and marketing. Opportunities for fall 2017 will be posted soon. 

Green Lead Training Program

The "Green Lead: Whole Impact Training" program provides a volunteer, professional development opportunity for Johns Hopkins University first year students on the Homewood campus that: introduces them to campus sustainability programs and initiatives; exposes them to critical concepts in behavior change and strategic project management; fosters a network of like-minded peers who can leverage each other’s potential to engage their peers; and equips them with the skills and knowledge needed to be effective change agents and leaders on campus and beyond. Look for applications for the 2017 program in December.

Academic, Internship, and Research Opportunities

Environment, Energy, Sustainability, and Health Institute (E2SHI) is an interdisciplinary research and educational initiative focused on sustainability and health. Their website is a resource that compiles sustainability-related academic courses, job, research/fellowship, and internship opportunities, academic programs, and other learning opportunities

Student Organizations

There are a multitude of student organizations and clubs that focus on different issues and areas of opportunity on campus, within the Baltimore region, and beyond. These span the various Johns Hopkins campuses. All community service, service-learning, and civic engagement is housed in the Center for Social Concern at the Homewood campus and at the Student Outreach Resource Center (SOURCE) in East Baltimore.

Climate Showcase

The Johns Hopkins Climate Showcase Project was a community-outreach initiative committed to creating a more sustainable non-profit sector in Baltimore from 2010 through 2012. Funded by a US Environmental Protection Agency grant, and in partnership with the City of Baltimore, the project focuses on strengthening Baltimore’s non-profit sector by providing city non-profits with dynamic free student-led energy and sustainability assessments.

Ideas in Action

Think before you print.

Office paper is highly recyclable, but a lot gets wasted. Waste reduction is more cost-effective than recycling because it reduces the amount of material that needs to be collected, transported and processed.
