Sustainability Lab

Purpose

The Sustainability Labs are hubs of collaboration for people working on, learning about, and advocating for sustainability. The Sustainability Lab was initially established in partnership with T-Rex to give the many organizations working on projects related to OneSTL the opportunity to meet regularly and share their successes, lessons and challenges. By forming a ‘sustainability lab' we have provided space for innovation, creativity, and collaboration; merging the often independent efforts of public and private sectors; and strive to achieve shared goals for the region, for organizations, for our communities and for ourselves on positively impacting equity, the environment and the economy. The Sustainability Lab has been expanded to Alton and St. Peters to make it accessible for more community members in the region.

If you have any questions or comments about the Lab, leave a message here.

4:45 - 6:30: Open House and Networking

We will use the June 2022 Sustainability Lab to talk about issues related to water and stormwater management. Roland Biehl from the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District will discuss what’s working in the realm of community stormwater best practices, including positive trends and changes in individual actions. Following his presentation Aaron Young will give a brief overview and history of Water Matters and how it’s involved with OneSTL. He’ll then lead a discussion on recent activities around Water Matters and using it as a platform to raise awareness and promote action on water issues in the region.
  • Roland Biehl, Environmental Specialist, Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District.
  • Aaron Young, Sustainability Planning Manager, East-West Gateway Council of Governments.

(As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we ask that all attendees take appropriate precautions such as getting vaccinated, maintaining social distance, wearing a mask when in proximity to more than three people, and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer frequently.)
