The Citizens Campaign and Sustainable Jersey have partnered to host a sustainability workshop—Using the Sustainability Toolkit: Building Healthier Communities—at the Camden County Environmental Center, in Cherry Hill, on Tuesday, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Gentek will be joined by several noted sustainability experts for an interactive discussion slated to follow a session aiming to let area residents know what they can do to get green initiatives going in their communities.
Also slated to sit on the panel, according to The Citizens Campaign, are Lori Braunstein, of Sustainable Cherry Hill, Cindy Randazzo, director of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Local Government Assistance, and Staci Greenberg, a member of the Mantua Township Environmental Commission.
Workshop attendees will have access to ongoing mentoring and coaching by The Citizens Campaign, particularly ongoing assistance in serving on and recruiting people to join green teams and other local environmental boards and commissions, as well as assistance in presenting Sustainable Jersey model ordinances to local governing bodies and school boards.
