The Urban Green Lab - August 2019 Share the Plate organization
At Urban Green Lab, we teach communities how to live sustainable lives. Founded in 2009, we work to ensure all of us have access to sustainable living education, with an emphasis on preventing waste. Through a focus on classrooms, households, and workplaces -- places where culture begins -- Urban Green Lab transforms spaces into “labs” for rethinking what it means to live sustainably by training and certifying professionals, organizing and facilitating exchange of best practices, connecting institutions with services, and encouraging people to feel good about being part of the solution." (Mission statement)
Urban Green Lab addresses climate and environmental justice. The problems of climate and environment are continuing to grow, with ignorance and dismissiveness common, led to a large extent by our governments, threatening our planet and humanity. The impact of these problems includes growing intensity of storms, rising sea levels, and poisoning of water supplies, and of land and local air. These problems are definitely inequitable in their having a higher impact on indigenous and economically depressed population areas, who are relatively powerless to defend themselves.
