Get Involved

Sustainability Lab @ T-Rex

3:30 - 7:00 PM @ 5th Floor, 911 Washington Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63101

Purpose

The Sustainability Lab @ T-Rex is a hub of collaboration for people working on, learning about, and advocating for sustainability. This event was initially established 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' in partnership with T-Rex, we will provide space for innovation, creativity, and collaboration; merge 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.
