Mission Statement

Urban Green Lab’s mission is to facilitate a range of educational and social programs that inspire participants from all socioeconomic backgrounds to make sustainability a bigger part of their lives-in their homes, neighborhoods, and businesses.

Description

Urban Green Lab is Nashville’s first nonprofit dedicated to improving the health and well-being of our city through sustainable living. We fill a gap by offering programs that inspire people of all ages to incorporate sustainability into their daily lives. Our workshops - on everything from green building to urban agriculture - spark positive changes at home and work that save money, improve health, and conserve resources. Through partnerships with local businesses, government, and nonprofits, we expand our reach in offering this needed service, and team with local colleges to monitor our impact.

Urban Green Lab is building the city’s first mobile sustainability laboratory. This vehicle, outfitted with interactive exhibits and green technologies, will travel to schools, businesses, and community events across Nashville. Our mobile lab enables us to reach diverse and underserved populations and to enhance schools’ science and technology curricula.
