Sustainable Jersey Actions
The NJ Safe Routes to School Recognition Program, Sustainable Jersey, and Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification programs all reward actions that help make communities more walkable and bikeable. It’s a great partnership!
Municipalities and Schools that meet the requirements for the NJ Safe Routes Recognition Program can also earn points toward Sustainable Jersey and Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification. Included below are tutorials that provide guidance on how to implement actions under the Sustainable Jersey program that make communities walkable and bikeable.
