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. Labs have also been held in Alton and St. Peters. 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.

How can we be more strategic about tree canopy in order to support an expanded, resilient urban forest delivering the biggest benefits? Join Meridith Perkins, Executive Director of Forest ReLeaf of Missouri and Erin Godwin, President of STL TreeLC to discuss how we need to have all the players at the table aligned around ensuring that trees reach their full potential and deliver on the eco-services we need for climate adaptation.
