What would help make Jersey City more sustainable, in your view?

In my opinion, sustainability begins with educating the people on how to create and maintain a sustainable environment. This begins my developing realistic goals and benchmarks for people to attain and inspiring an appreciation for all things organic and holistic. The development of a Green Curriculum in schools is a great start. Community improvement programs to build more gardens, recycle, and encourage tapping in to our natural resources such as going to the library, reading books, writing more, and having more open public discussions is key. Becoming a partner in the city's policy-making by working with legislators to promote clean energy in such an industrial city as Jersey City, is paramount. Also, building and developing sustainable, earth friendly structures allows one to take pride in their community.
