Working toward regional sustainability by progressing the way we live, work, and build in Chattanooga and the surrounding region.
green|spaces is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Our mission is to work toward regional sustainability by progressing the way we live, work and build in Chattanooga and the surrounding region.
The impetus of green|spaces is to address the lack of awareness and application of sustainable best practices in Chattanooga and the surrounding region. As a community resource center, green|spaces serves as a forum in which people are always welcome to gather and discuss all things ecologically sound. Educational and technical classes, informal lunch and learns and a materials and methods library are all accessible to the public.
green|spaces also works with commercial and residential builders to encourage and educate them to make construction less wasteful and more environmentally responsible. Today's design and building best practices can do away with unnecessary waste and improve performance. Living green, working green and building green will benefit the triple bottom line; improving Chattanooga’s environment, economy and social equity.
