Texas City Lab

Austin, Texas Skyline
Year 2013

Grant Amount: $21,620

This project explored the feasibility of creating a local ‘city lab’ that marries the sustainability issues that challenge Austin and other Texas cities with the capacity for The University of Texas to solve these problems. Patterned after a similar program in Oregon, the Green Fee funded a pilot year where a working group was assembled, the first client was selected, and several faculty were encouraged to redesign their courses around environmental issues and their proposed solutions.
