On Wednesday, June 10, Sustainable Jersey will host the 2015 New Jersey Sustainability Summit from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The College of New Jersey in Ewing.
The program is designed to provide participants with a clear sense of the sustainability movement in New Jersey, 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.
In addition to networking opportunities and two general session speakers, the summit will offer a total of 16 concurrent sessions to discuss the Sustainable State of the State Report, share perspectives on Sustainable Jersey and dig deeper into the issue of sustainability. Experts and industry professionals will lead each session, review current challenges and lead an audience discussion on strategies for making progress.
NJSBA’s executive director, Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, will be featured as a speaker during Education: Sustainability, Skills and Enrichment, and NJSBA’s Green Schools Fellow, Kara Angotti, will be featured during Changing the Way Buildings and Communities are Designed, Built, and Operated.
The Summit also features information on the Sustainable Jersey for Schools program, a voluntary sustainability certification-recognition program for school districts, launched at Workshop 2014 by NJSBA and Sustainable Jersey. The program currently has more than 200 participating schools and 70 participating districts.
