We would like to invite you to our 5th Acting Locally for a More Sustainable World Conference in January 25th, 2020.  Our annual conference has become one of the largest gatherings of environmental and community activists in New Jersey. Forty-two organizations were represented at the event in 2019, and we are expecting over forty-five for the 2020 conference. Please see below the information about the event, getting tickets and tabling opportunities.

General Information: This is a great opportunity for people to connect with groups focusing on different environmental and sustainability projects in our region. More than 42 community groups attended the 4th Conference in January 2019.  At the conference, you will have the opportunity to meet community leaders and groups from northern and central Jersey to network on environmental issues including local food, sustainable communities, alternative transportation, renewable energy, clean air and water, and climate change activism.

By the end of the day, we hope for new partnerships for mutual support.
