Regular monthly Green Team Meeting
The New Jersey Sustainability Summit is a momentous event in our state, annually drawing more than 600 change-makers from across the political, private, and public sectors. This exceptional one-day forum spotlights the successes and lessons learned from the people and projects that are helping New Jersey realize a more sustainable future. Last year’s record breaking crowd ended the day with tangible resources and strategies to assist with their own community initiatives. Don’t miss your chance to do the same! We invite all who are interested to be ready to deepen their understanding and expand their network. Registration is open. Seats are limited.
