In 2013, Rockcliffe introduced the Center for Sustainable Technologies to the Rockcliffe Second Life and OpenSim Campuses. These centers serve two purposes. The first is to engage and encourage a dialogue about issues of conservation, awareness, research, and technologies that have an opportunity to reshape the economic future of society. The second is to provide a play ground to prototype virtual the way in which those technologies can be used to tackle real world situations.
