Each of Sustainable Jersey's hubs are provided with a Basecamp project so that green teams can coordinate, collaborate and connect with each other. We'll take a look at the "how to's" of using Basecamp, from starting discussion threads, to scheduling events, to sharing files, and private chatting with others.
*It is advised to be at a computer for this webinar as we will be doing a run through of various functions of Basecamp.

The concept of complete streets is to design streets for all users and all ability levels. The successful implementation of this concept requires a focus on context and the unique needs of the community. A variety of resources are available to assist municipal officials, staff, and the public in embarking on a connected and coordinated effort to advance implementation of complete streets at the municipal level.
This free workshop is a collaborative effort by the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA), Sustainable Jersey, the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, the New Jersey Department of Transportation and Together North Jersey. The full day training opportunity is structured in four discrete sections, giving the participants the ability to make the most efficient use of their time by choosing the content that best meets their needs.
