Events

3 films_EVENTBRITE BANNER_updatedSustainable JC hosts a large number of workshops, talks and fun events that create awareness about various topics and educate the community – everyone is welcome.  Many of these educational outreach activities fall into one of our three primary CSC tracks –

  1. Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle (including Food Waste)
  2. Built Environment Energy Efficiency Opportunities, Stormwater Management & Water Conservation; Green Infrastructure Opportunities
  3. Urban Food Systems 

Most often, these activities relate to the Projects we are working on or Campaigns we are running.  For example, our Greener Buildings / Green Infrastructure advocacy work and SJC’s Rain Gardens +ART Campaign, represent two approaches we take to educating the community about the need for policy change in Jersey City, and we often address these topics at our events.
