Engaged Living’s Greenbelt Community is a residential learning community for approximately 22 upper class residents who are interested in learning about and living an environmentally sustainable life. Furman defines sustainability as an exploration of "…the dynamic relationships among social, economic, and environmental systems so as to enhance the long-term quality of life." The purpose of the Greenbelt Community, which is located along the lake next to the Furman Bell Tower and adjacent to the David E. Shi Center for Sustainability and the Furman Farm, is to serve as an living/learning incubator for sustainability leadership on the Furman campus with the goal of developing community leaders in the area of sustainability.
This living/learning community is designed to serve as an incubator for the training and development of sustainability student leaders on campus and in the surrounding Greenville community. The primary goal of this community is not only to promote sustainable living, but also to empower students to make a difference in sustainability initiatives at Furman and beyond.
