Urban Green Lab’s Households Division trains professionals at the neighborhood level to create sustainable living education systems that inspire residents and families to be part of the solution.


Sustainable Households

Are you a nonprofit or civic association passionate about making sustainable living education a part of your outreach? At Urban Green Lab, we work together with you to create a plan for teaching neighborhood residents the basics of sustainable choices that inspires, empowers, and moves our community to action. No matter your social sector or population, we organize, train, and connect teams of visionaries within your group known as “Sustainable Household Professionals” who weave sustainable living into everything you do, and make it a permanent part of your group’s mission, values, and culture.

Our Households Division works closely with nonprofit organizations, neighborhood associations, property managers and volunteer HOAs, music venues, and sports leagues, and includes personalized team trainings, access to sustainable living curricula and tools, and connection to resources that help solve your sustainable living challenges. The Division also hosts the Nonprofit Sustainability Roundtable for Nashville, in partnership with the Center for Nonprofit Management, uniting professionals from organizations large and small to exchange best practices, tour member nonprofits, and advocate collectively.

Come see Urban Green Lab’s Mobile Lab (our “classroom on wheels”) at family festivals and fairs year-round and learn how you can be sustainable every day.
