The 2018 New Jersey Sustainability Summit will explore how individual and community behaviors can impact the quality of necessities for better or worse, such as our air, water, health, economy, and so much more.
Sustainable Jersey brings together a unique mix of public and private, state and local partners to support communities in achieving remarkable progress. You will participate in thought provoking conversations that focus on engaging government, community, schools, business and academia in sustainable action. The event attracts over 300 diverse participants from across New Jersey.
The 2018 Sustainability Summit will focus on research, successful models, and available resources that contribute to each of us working together to build local capacity for change.
This event offers an exciting opportunity to network, engage and collaborate with a wide range Sustainable Jersey and Sustainable Jersey for Schools green team and task force members, academics, elected officials, state and local agency representatives, non-profit staff, business people, and the interested public.
This year's keynote speaker is First Lady Tammy Snyder Murphy. The First Lady comes with decades of experience supporting research, service and advocacy efforts focused on the environment, education, healthcare, youth and family services. Tammy has been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, clean energy and is working to support local government efforts and the critical role that communities play in achieving our statewide sustainability goals. It is her belief in problem-solving through coalition-building and participation that makes Tammy the ideal person to keynote our 2018 Summit.
