What is Green Lab?

Green Lab came into being as an initiative of CEA (Environmental Studies Centre) in order to tackle issues related to Vitoria-Gasteiz city and surrounding area. It works as an experimental lab where new strategic prototypes related to sustainable development and life quality improvement are treated.

This aim is intended to be achieved by means of boosting different research programs, along with educational and employment plans. Dissemination of researches and results among population is also regarded as necessary, according to the goals of the project.

Green Lab´s headquarters are in the Farmhouse of Olarizu.
