The Sustainability Laboratory
- New York
The Sustainability Laboratory was established in 2008 in order to help address urgent sustainability issues facing the planet.
To guide its activities, The Lab has developed its own unique, action-oriented conceptual framework, which takes a holistic perspective and features cross-sector and cross-disciplinary collaboration.
Applying this holistic approach, The Lab engages in research, development, and education activities focused on key sustainability-related issues. Our growing portfolio of projects demonstrate cutting edge, model strategies for addressing sustainability challenges on a local, regional, and planetary scale.
The Lab’s flagship project is Project Wadi Attir, a sustainable development project with a Bedouin community in Israel’s Negev Desert. It also hosts an annual graduate-level sustainability fellowship for young professionals, The Global Sustainability Fellows Program.
