The Center for a Livable Future of Johns Hopkins University works to improve human living conditions worldwide while protecting the environment and conserving natural resources for the future. The Web site features information about its research, educational opportunities, and its ongoing programs: Farming for the Future, Eating for the Future, and Living for the Future. While the Center has a worldwide scope, it offers many ideas for sustainable choices on a personal level.
