Object Mejlgade Lab is an voluntary organization and urban laboratory, which aims to create local and sustain-

able solutions to global climate change and resource challenges. Their goal is to make urban life more

green and sustainable and consequently more liveable.

Mejlgade Lab is based in the Latin Quarter, Aarhus – Denmark 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. Their 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. students and speciallsts among others in a series of cross-disciplinary projects, processes. workshops and events that inspire to concrete actions. A few of their current themes are waste management, intelligent rainwater solutions, biodiversity, green mobility and greening schemes, as well as others, in the densely populated city.
