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 & 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 also 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 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 sustainability movement in Jersey City.

Overlooking the Bergen Arches, this is a fabulous location with parking !  Come checkout the P.E.A.C.E. Garden, whose harvest contributes to The Sharing Place Food Pantry (also onsite) and the newly installed RAIN GARDEN.  St. Paul’s is a great sustainability demonstration site, also implementing a commercial solar array on the community hall out back – Bravo !

August Monthly Meeting – FOLLOW-UP DISCUSSION to #BeTheChangeJC meeting hosted by The Citizen’s Campaign July 21st at St. Paul’s located in the emerging Five Corners Eco District.  

This follow-up discussion will build on our June & July monthly meetings where we discussed 1) strategies available to City Hall to design future focus of Eco Sustainability into the City’s Budget Process, and 2) opportunities to take a ‘systems approach’ to sustainability / climate change planning,  for ALL development projects in Jersey City.   

MANY folks turned out for the Citizen’s Campaign event in mid-June and hopefully many will gather to continue to self-organize into cluster groups of interest.  The Citizen’s Campaign has fabulous training which can benefit YOU, especially if you are interested to collaborate with SJC to move a Sustainability (Environmental, Social and Economic Impacts) Agenda forward for Jersey City.   We strongly support their evidence-based, no blame approach and is the way we conduct business.

For example . . . .

SJC is aligning our Greener Buildings, Green Infrastructure, Solar / Alternative Clean Energy Project Teams and digging in with some work streams this Summer that will support -

  • the emerging Five Corners Eco District neighborhood revitalization model we are designing,
  • changes we seek to the Jersey City Building Code, and
  • assessment of current green ordinances and policies currently on the books for Jersey City – this is an opportunity to present useful checklists and policy / ordinance proposals, to City Council and other officials to help move JC forward.

If you are interested to join this working group, please let us know !

Our planning activities also include deepening our educational outreach activities and launching more innovative demonstration projects for Jersey City.  We are very excited about the support we can provide to neighborhood initiatives through our project funding platform with charitable donations partner ioby.org and SJC is looking for more folks to join our ranks to make this happen.  Let us know if you would like to be involved in these areas !

If you have any grant writing experience please indicate that on our Welcome Survey, which we ask everyone who wants to volunteer with us to take; is very quick and will also put you into our system so you can receive all of our notifications.

Please attend our August meeting if you are interested to work with us

SJC Monthly Meeting – EAT, MEET, TALK !
Apr 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
SJC Monthly Meeting - EAT, MEET, TALK ! @ City Hall - Caucus Room 204,  1 block walk from Grove St. PATH | Jersey City | New Jersey | United States

August Monthly Meeting – FOLLOW-UP DISCUSSION to #BeTheChangeJC meeting hosted by The Citizen’s Campaign July 21st at St. Paul’s located in the emerging Five Corners Eco District.  

This follow-up discussion will build on our June & July monthly meetings where we discussed 1) strategies available to City Hall to design future focus of Eco Sustainability into the City’s Budget Process, and 2) opportunities to take a ‘systems approach’ to sustainability / climate change planning,  for ALL development projects in Jersey City.   

MANY folks turned out for the Citizen’s Campaign event in mid-June and hopefully many will gather to continue to self-organize into cluster groups of interest.  The Citizen’s Campaign has fabulous training which can benefit YOU, especially if you are interested to collaborate with SJC to move a Sustainability (Environmental, Social and Economic Impacts) Agenda forward for Jersey City.   We strongly support their evidence-based, no blame approach and is the way we conduct business.

For example . . . .

SJC is aligning our Greener Buildings, Green Infrastructure, Solar / Alternative Clean Energy Project Teams and digging in with some work streams this Summer that will support -

  • the emerging Five Corners Eco District neighborhood revitalization model we are designing,
  • changes we seek to the Jersey City Building Code, and
  • assessment of current green ordinances and policies currently on the books for Jersey City – this is an opportunity to present useful checklists and policy / ordinance proposals, to City Council and other officials to help move JC forward.

If you are interested to join this working group, please let us know !

Our planning activities also include deepening our educational outreach activities and launching more innovative demonstration projects for Jersey City.  We are very excited about the support we can provide to neighborhood initiatives through our project funding platform with charitable donations partner ioby.org and SJC is looking for more folks to join our ranks to make this happen.  Let us know if you would like to be involved in these areas !

If you have any grant writing experience please indicate that on our Welcome Survey, which we ask everyone who wants to volunteer with us to take; is very quick and will also put you into our system so you can receive all of our notifications.

Please attend our August meeting if you are interested to work with us
