UN Sustainable Development Goal No. 11
urbanlab (sometimes also urbanlab_am and/or urbanlab.am) is a Yerevan-based independent urban think-do-share lab, aimed to promote democratization of urban landscape toward sustainable development in its broader understanding.
With its origins deep in the grassroots civic movements for protection of urban environment, urbanlab team finds it important to pair professional capacities with the spirit of activism as a more efficient and sustainable strategy of realization of the set goals.
Meanwhile, strong appreciation of the importance of exposing the younger generation to urban cultural capacities and social resources has been a motivation for the foundation to initiate and be involved in various formal and informal educational endeavors.
urbanlab’s (sometimes also urbanlab_am and/or urbanlab.am) multi-disciplinary platform enables the organization to operate in a diverse range of activities of self-initiated and/or commissioned research, content creation for public and professional reference (see we think) , alternative and informal education (see we share), consultation, management and execution of community involvement environmental/urban policy projects (see we do).
