Common Home is an online magazine edited by Georgetown students that explores the broad topics around environment and sustainability. Through our expert guest contributors and student journalists, we nurture an interdisciplinary approach to share stories as interconnected as our planet.

In our pages, we aim to celebrate innovation and research across sectors, stare straightforward at challenges, amplify diverse voices, and engage audiences of all backgrounds. 

The views present in Common Home are the views of the authors and not of Georgetown University.
