In an effort to spawn Neighborhood Sustainability Projects, SJC began educating community stakeholders through its CSC Program and is supporting those individuals and community groups who Team to make Jersey City a more sustainable place to live and work. Most of our work is designed to strengthen a city-wide Collaborative Network of green civic actionaries – some of their work is reflected on the various Projects listed on this site. If you are interested in joining one of our Project Teams, let us know so we can meetup and get you tracking !
In addition to supporting Project Teams with Education & Tools to make their projects more successful, we are also doing our own Innovative Demonstration Projects. These can be models for new Teams, showing how to develop and implement projects in your neighborhood, and also, how collaboration across communities can create greater impact than going at it solo. We’ve also developed a process to show citizens how to lead, design / install projects, that are in alignment with the Sustainable Jersey municipal certification program and in concert with Jersey City’s own municipal efforts.
