Announcing our First Annual Sustainable Teachers Awards!

As part of our largest fundraiser of the year, an Emerald Evening, we are thrilled to recognize Nashville educators going above and beyond to integrate sustainability education into their classrooms. Nominate a teacher who deserves recognition for their work creating a more just and greener world!


Urban Green Lab's mission is to facilitate a range of educational and social programs that inspire Nashvillians to make sustainability a bigger part of their lives in their homes, neighborhoods, and businesses.

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!
