Events

Sustainable 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
  2. Built Environment Energy Efficiency Opportunities, Stormwater Management & Water Conservation
  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.

We alsMonthly Mtg Imageo hold our SJC Monthly Meetings, which are held on the first Tuesday evening of every month from 7pm – 9pm at City Hall, Council Caucus Room #204.  These EAT, MEET, TALK programs provide an opportunity to network over delicious local fare, listen to relevant Community Org / Expert Presentations and be included in discussion about SJC Business / Project activities.  All are welcome and is a great way to plug-in to the JC sustainability movement.

SJCpostcard2014Sustainable JC also hosts a monthly social and business networking event for the community called SJC Green Drinks +ART.  This event usually takes place the 3rd Thursday evening of the month from 7 – 9pm or so . . . Come check out our outdoor patio parties for Summer, indoor Jazz / Acoustical Lounge Vibe for Winter.  Great food, music, spoken word and other artistic talent is braided together with community info-sharing, sustainable lifestyle demos and marketplace updates.

 

Photos of past events.

Upcoming details about all of SJC events will be posted on the Home page of our website, our Fan Page, Linkedin and are Tweeted; also feel free to join our Meetup and Facebook communities to stay in touch.

Details for ongoing event series will be updated each month, closer to the event date.

SJC Monthly Meeting – Project Leaders Roundtable
Sep 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

TIME FOR A CHANGE !

Greetings and hope everyone had a terrific summer 🙂

SJC has been quite busy working in the field this season and we’ve made some organizational decisions about how we would like to continue our work as Jersey City’s Community Green Team.

We will be celebrating our 6th Anniversary this September and have met many of the original objectives framed in our Mission Statement & Charter, which you can view on our homepage.  So it’s time to pivot and focus on taking SJC to the next level.

Please note the following –

•  First, we will now be hosting two events each month, with this 1st Tuesday Monthly Meeting now taking the form of a Project Leaders Roundtable – it is intended ONLY for those of us who are actively working on projects, both SJC and, Community led where SJC is playing a supporting role, and will be a working session.  This month’s Agenda will focus on #ConnectingTheDotsJC, a look at where our projects connect with the City’s priorities, or not, and the interconnections of our project work – we will explore the touch points across our activities and plan for the future.  WE WILL NOT BE CONTINUING WITH LAST SEASONS FORMAT & AGENDA.

•  Second, on every 3rd Thursday, starting with a Sept, Oct, Nov Film Series, we have partnered with NJCU, HCCC & Ramapo College of NJ, to launch a Public Education Forum for the community.  This continues our cornerstone commitment of educational outreach and will allow us to efficiently provide both general sustainability and resiliency planning education + build up our Certificate Program in Urban Sustainability, in collaboration with these institutions.   WE ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS !  here is the link for the Fall Series, which will take place on NJCU’s Main Campus.

We hope this provides a clear context for those who would like to 1) focus on getting educated through these film discussion forums on 3rd Thurs evenings, and / or, 2) directly work on building SJC’s organizational capacity through our 1st Tues monthly meetings.

If you would like to work with us and have not yet filled out our Welcome Survey, please do.

Thanks and look forward to continuing to learn and work with you all, in making Jersey City a more sustainable place to live and work.

Best,

Debra
