We teach communities how to live sustainable, healthy lives.

At Urban Green Lab, we want to make sure everyone knows the basics of sustainable living.  By 2100, our globe must keep temperatures from rising 2 degrees Celsius to avoid irreversible ecological change that affects all life.  For these reasons, we foster a holistic approach to urban sustainability education, with a focus on energy, water, and food waste in the places where culture begins - classrooms, households, and workplaces.  All of us are part of the solution, and together, we can protect Earth's resources for generations to come.

what's new AT Urban Green Lab

Urban Green Lab has done so much for the Nashville community and I’m so impressed with how the organization has grown. I’m especially excited for the Mobile Lab to make a lasting impact on a younger generation in Nashville.

Students learn what they can do in their homes and communities to save money and be more financially sustainable, live healthier and protect the planet. Just this year, more than 1,000 MNPS middle and high school students have participated with the Mobile Lab!
