Sustainable Jersey City
Sustainable Jersey City is a Collaborative Network of green community groups and individuals within Jersey City who have come together to advance efforts to move the city toward a more sustainable future.
Sustainable Jersey City is a catalyst organization that educates, empowers and activates community stakeholders, to make Jersey City NJ a more sustainable place to live and work.
Our vision is for Jersey City to become the greenest and most sustainable city in New Jersey, with community stakeholders that are educated about and committed to environmental, economic and social justice.
SJC Project initiatives include programming for our Community Sustainability Curriculum (CSC), Community Composting Project, Good Food Now! Project, Green Infrastructure Project, Greener Buildings Project. Government Relations is an ongoing function within the organization. Education, Team-building and Innovative Demonstration Projects are what we do.
Engaging the public toward neighborhood and citywide innovative demonstration projects, through educational outreach, technical assistance and mobilizing teams of people to take action, is thrust of our work. Since we launched in 2011, we have engaged over 5K community members in educational outreach, we are in our 6th year of the Certificate Program in Urban Sustainability we host each Spring at Hudson County Community College (first of its kind), provided various sustainability focused interactive community maps (more underway), built the first series of rain gardens and green wall in Jersey City, in the process of planning a large scale green roof demonstration project, launched energy efficiency training for commercial building operators just this past year.
