Last night was the biggest turnout of any JC Tech Meetup I’ve run, and I couldn’t be more excited about the outcome and enthusiasm from the group.
We had a productive open conversation with the community on how sustainability and resiliency measures are making a huge impact on Jersey City, the tech scene and the world we live in.
Debra A. (Deb) Italiano of Sustainable JC moderated the discussion, shining a light on some of the impressive sustainability initiatives taking place in Jersey City. My key takeaway was that we all need to be a part of this conversation instead of ignoring the ongoing issues we are creating for our environment.
We also had some killer presentations from our panelists: George Thomas Vallone of Hoboken Brownstone Company, Tony Borelli of Bike JC, Michael Mazur of Greenspot, and Matt de la Houssaye, MS of Global Green USA. A huge thanks to all of these speakers for their unique insights and for sharing how they incorporate green measures within their organizations. Loved hearing these different perspectives.
Come join us on January 17th for another fun night of JC Tech where we’ll learn about some of the tech behind local sustainability and resiliency efforts, as well as their environmental, social and economic implications. Not sure what both or either of these words even refer to? We have a panel of local rock stars who will be diving into these topics to help you understand exactly what they mean, how they are affecting the world around us, and what YOU can do in your everyday life to be a part of the positive change that this planet needs. Don’t miss out on this important night!
