SJC Monthly Meeting - EAT, MEET, TALK !

 June Monthly Meeting - FOLLOW-UP DISCUSSION to the excellent presentations at the May 17th Jersey City Budget Forum.

Budgeting for Sustainability In Municipalities Budgeting with special guest Dr. Kevin Lyons / Rutgers Business School and supportive presentations by Anna Lukasiak / Open JC

SJC’s goal this year is to establish the economic case for sustainability and climate change planning for Jersey City.  Procurement and strategic investment policies, transacted thru the City’s Budget Process, are key pathways toward integrating sustainability planning into the governance culture, which is why we brought in Kevin Lyons to talk about his successful work with other municipalities and the tools we can use to get us going in a better direction.

This follow-up discussion will build on Kevin's presentation at the Budget Forum and is tee-up for the Sustainability Working Group activities we are launching in partnership with the Citizen's Campaign as part of the Impact JC launch coming June 14th.

Please RSVP here to help us organize attendance and food !

Suggested food donation $5.00

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
