Sustainable Jersey Listening Sessions

With a strong movement in place after ten years of hard work, we want to engage all of our partners, and all of you, to think about how we can rise to the occasion of the next ten years. From climate change, to water, waste and equity issues, so many of the big sustainability concerns are reaching a crisis point.

Join us at one of three listening sessions this Fall and share your thoughts on what the next ten years might look like for our state and the Sustainable Jersey program. Help us envision the critical issues facing our municipalities and schools that Sustainable Jersey might tackle, how the program may better support the work you are doing on the ground and more.

The challenges we face are sobering. We need everyone on board to work together and build a common agenda for a sustainable New Jersey. We’ve had success, but we are about to enter into the most critical ten-year period, probably in human history. Is that too dramatic? We don’t think so.

Sustainable Jersey has had an impact because we thought creatively and were laser-focused on having a measurable impact on communities. We want to continue to be creative and push the envelope. As we look to the next ten years, what is the role of communities in securing the future? What should the role of Sustainable Jersey be? How can we work together to play our parts to solve these problems?

The process will end with change. This is not just process for the sake of process. We are committed to this being a meaningful exercise and are committed to finding and enacting big and small ideas that can help us rise to the occasion of the next ten years.
