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.
