2017 New Jersey Sustainability Summit

Local Action = Collective Impact

Over 300 change-makers from across the political, private and public sectors met at the 2017 New Jersey Sustainability Summit on June 21, 2017 to take stock together on a path for a sustainable New Jersey.  The one-day sustainability summit included a keynote address from Chris Daggett, President and CEO of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and a total of 12 breakout sessions with topics ranging from "promoting a clean energy future at the local level" and "protecting our natural resources, local action/regional impact" to "strengthening leadership at the local level."  This year's agenda addressed issues and showcased the innovative solutions that are most relevant in 2017 against a backdrop of an increasingly complex national landscape.  We thank everyone that participated for lending their time and talents to this endeavor.
