Events

Sustainable JC hosts a large number of workshops and talks on various topics – everyone from the community is welcome.  Many of these educational events fall into one of our the three primary CSC tracks – 1) Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, 2) Energy Efficiency & Water Conservation, and 3) Urban Farming &  Gardening – or are about the Projects we are working on, for example SJC’s Rain Gardens +ART Campaign and Green Infrastructure Policy opportunities for Jersey City.

We also hold our Monthly Meetings, which are held on the first Tuesday evening of every month from 7pm – 9pm.  SJC’s EAT, MEET, TALK program includes Networking over local fare, SJC Business Update, Community Org / Expert Presentations and are held at alternating venues at both downtown and uptown locations – see specific event details for more infomation:

Film Screening and Public Forum: ‘The Future of Food’ / Special Focus on GMOs !
Apr 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Time To Act -  A Special Earth Day Event !

You’ll never look at dinner the same way again.  (Or Breakfast, or Lunch, for that matter…!)

A free public screening of THE FUTURE OF FOOD, the acclaimed American documentary that exposes how our food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that put profits ahead of consumer health, the farmer, and our environment.

The film will be followed by a discussion on the SAFE FOOD movement that’s sweeping the country.  Learn about GMO’s (genetically modified organisms – plants and animals) and how you can help make GMO Labeling Laws a reality here in NJ.

Pending legislation is now with our State Legislature and needs your support to pass;  this forum will be an opportunity for those attending, to understand actions you can take on behalf of SAFE FOOD CHOICES FOR YOU AND OUR COMMUNITY.

JERSEY CITY can make a difference in making this happen if we all work together and LET TRENTON KNOW THAT THEY MUST PASS THIS LEGISLATION.

More about GMO’s here.

Sponsored by: Sustainable JC, Ramapo College and NJCU, with Food & Water Watch and Sierra Club of New Jersey.
