Citizen Journalism Tools & Working With The Media To Green Your Neighborhood

DATE CHANGE TO MONDAY EVENING APRIL 9TH - 7PM

Join Us!! 

Special Event Co-Sponsored by Sustainable JC and Committee For A Green Hoboken

We've invited The Citizen's Campaign, Green Map System & The Hudson Reporter to a special evening discussion about how to get results on your issues as an effective Citizen Journalist and how to use various media tools and channels to bring about desired change.


With the support of Sustainable Jersey and the Dodge Foundation, the Citizen's Campaign and Green Map System are working together to empower communities throughout the state toward working more effectively with municipal officials. 

We are going to use a lite case study approach and discuss Green Complete Streets as a way to understand how to use various media tools to support implementation of neighborhood plans that provide pedestrians, bikers and vehicles balanced access and safe passage while also integrating healthier Green Infrastructure (Rain Gardens & Smart Tree Pits) into our streetscapes.

The goal is be able to offer important feedback to our planning officials, e.g.,  Environmental Commission, City Council, Neighborhood Association, etc.  Working with media tools can assist in that regard and local media organizations like The Hudson Reporter are eager to hear from the community in support of Neighborhood Sustainability Agendas.  Please join this grassroots gathering and learn how to become part of the editorial voice of your community.

Come around 7pm to socialize a bit and we will be serving coffee. 

We plan to start on time at 7:30pm and the program will end around 9pm.

Lauren Sjowronski / The Citizen's Campaign, Wendy Brawer / Green Map System and Adriana Rambay Fernandez / Reporter - Staff Writer for The Hudson Reporter available for additional Q&A after the program.

    Great insight on how to get your point across through online publications. Also found different avenues to take when dealing with city agencies. I thought the Green Mapping part of the evening was informative and discovered new websites to explore on biking communities.

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.
