About the Stone Living Lab The Stone Living Lab conducts transformative research and outreach to make vulnerable coastal regions adaptive to climate change while enhancing natural and built environments.
Together with researchers, students, and the public, we test innovative, nature-based approaches to climate adaptation, coastal resilience, and ecological restoration in and around Boston Harbor.
A living lab brings research out of the lab and into the real world by creating a user-centered, open, innovative ecosystem that engages scientists and the community in collaborative design and exploration. 12
Our Guiding Principles Where Innovation Meets Land and Sea
Conducting experiments in science and engineering to increase the resiliency of natural and developed coastal systems while maximizing co-benefits and promoting ecological restoration.
Promoting creative, equitable, and flexible coastal adaptation while preparing for and responding to climate change.
Engaging our communities in education and outreach programs that promote innovation and environmental justice, and facilitate hands-on research activities inclusive to all.
Collaborating broadly to conduct research on policy and planning, disseminate scientific findings, inform policy development, and implement the lessons learned from the Stone Living Lab.
The Stone Living Lab is thrilled to announce Melissa Hoffer, Massachusetts’ first ever Climate Chief, will join us as a Keynote Speaker during our April 2023 Conference, Nature-Based Coastal Resilience in Urban Settings.
