Most people see the benefits of having clean air, fresh water, alternative energy options, waterways filled with fish, garbage in its proper place, parks and open space and a healthy place to work, live and go to school. The big question is how do we achieve this as a state? With over 400 municipalities and 275 schools and districts participating in Sustainable Jersey, now is the time to ask big questions.
Sustainable Jersey has been engaged in a collaborative process to create a vision and track our progress in terms of practical goals with indicators that describe observable outcomes at the state level. Indicators help us recognize milestones on their way to sustainability; taking their readings a report card on performance. Building on the 2013 Sustainability Summit at Duke Farms and the feedback received, the objectives of the 2015 New Jersey Sustainability Summit are to:
• Establish a vision for the movement by releasing our Sustainable State of the State Report
• Share resources and strategies that can be implemented in municipalities and schools today
• Discuss new things that Sustainable Jersey can do to support progress
Participants will come away with a clear sense of the state of the movement, new ideas about what can be done to make progress, an expanded network of fellow practitioners, and the inspiration to go back and continue to drive change one municipality or school at a time.
The New Jersey Sustainability Summit will provide an understanding of how we are doing as a state. Through information-rich educational sessions designed to share existing efforts and test emerging best practices, attendees will take home valuable resources to make progress in the community.
