Mejlgade Lab is a voluntary organization and urban laboratory, which aims to create local and sustainable solutions to global challenges, such as climate change and resource scarcity. Our goal is to make urban life greener, sustainable and consequently more livable.
Mejlgade Lab is based in the Latin Quarter of Aarhus, Denmarks second largest city – and in particular on the street of Mejlgade and acts to create local, community-based development, through a various of activities, green tests and pilot projects that support a sustainable transition in the specific areas. Our vIsIon is to inspire and engage locals in the specific areas. Our vision is to inspire and engage locals in green networks and communities, where Mejlgade Lab functions as an intermediate green and sustainable 1:1 laboratory.
In order to facilitate a sustainable transition in the Latin Quarter, we employ a user-driven methodology that engages citizens, municipality, local businesses, studens and speciallists among others in a series of cross-disciplinary projects, processes, workshops and events that inspire to concrete actions. A few of our current themes are waste management, intelligent rainwater solutions, biodiversity, green mobility and greening schemes, as well as others, mainly targeted the densely populated city.
