Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition events
Here are two upcoming events to help Hobokenites act locally on a global issue. One tonight, and another on Tuesday.
Note that the Committee for a Green Hoboken includes three council people, Michael Russo, Dawn Zimmer & Terry LaBruno, and they’re hoping to get a resolution introduced in City Council soon to commit the city to live up to the Cool Cities’ standards put out by the National Mayors’ Council and Sierra Club.
The Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition Says:
“Come down and join these local efforts to make Hoboken greener!”
- Join the Committee for a Green Hoboken, a new subcommittee of the Quality of Life Coalition. Its aim is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the operations of city government (City Hall, multi-service center, police, fire, library, etc.) and to inform and encourage individuals to become participants in the effort to combat global warming in their personal lives.
The next meeting of the group is on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 7:30 p.m.
The Community Church, corner of 6th and Garden St., is graciously opening its doors for the evening. All are welcome.
- Wake Up to Green, the educational discussion series organized by QLC, welcomes Patrick Hossay, PhD, Associate Professor of Social and Environmental Sciences, at Stockton College (Pomona, NJ). One of the most sought-after speakers in New Jersey on the topic of global warming, Hossay is the author of Unsustainable: A Primer for Global Environmental and Social Justice.
Dr. Hossay will be in Hoboken on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 7:30 p.m.
Thanks to The Hudson School, corner of 6th and Park Ave., the event will take place in the school’s Performance Space. Enter on the 6th Street side.
Here is a unique opportunity to literally get in on the ground floor of Hoboken’s collective effort to beat global warming. Please join us.
