2015 New Jersey Sustainability Summit
Jun 03, 2015 06:05PM
Sustainable Jersey will host the 2015 New Jersey Sustainability Summit from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., June 10, at The College of New Jersey, in Ewing.
The benefits of having clean air, fresh water, alternative energy options, waterways filled with fish, garbage in its proper place, parks, open spaces, and a healthy place to work, live and go to school are obvious. Achieving these goals is the challenge facing the more than 400 municipalities and 275 schools and districts now participating in Sustainable Jersey. The objectives of the 2015 Summit are to establish a vision for the movement by releasing the Sustainable State of the State Report, share resources and strategies that can be implemented in municipalities and schools today, and discuss new things that the organization can do to support progress.
Keynote Speaker Shelley Poticha, of the Natural Resources Defense Council, will discuss the challenge of coordinated state and federal action in support of local sustainability and how to track that progress. The event will feature 16 concurrent sessions designed to share resources and take feedback about the Sustainable State of the State Report, sharing perspectives and digging deeper into the dimensions of sustainability with experts and industry professionals. Networking opportunities will also be available.
Cost $35 for state, county, municipal, non-profit or Green Team volunteers, $75 all others. Location: 2000 Pennington Rd. For more information or to register, visit SustainableJersey.com.
