Assemblyman Tim Eustace, center, speaks with students and faculty at Ramapo College of New Jersey.
MAHWAH, N.J. – Ramapo College of New Jersey welcomed Assemblyman Tim Eustace ’78 on April 18 for a forum on sustainability issues.
Assemblyman Eustace, Chair of the Environment and Solid Waste Committee in New Jersey, participated in a mutual exchange forum with students in the College’s Environmental Studies program, 1 Step sustainability club members, and members of the faculty and staff.
“I’m a zealot for environmental issues,” said Assemblyman Eustace. “There is nothing more important in our lifetime than water; it is a finite source. There is a crisis on all seven continents and I want to make sure that young people, all of us, get the message that we need to be more judicious moving forward. Not for you or me, but for everyone who comes after us.”
The Assemblyman engaged with the audience in an informative exchange of ideas on topics, including solar energy, recycling, wind power, fossil fuel use, rain water collection, community gardens and the concept of “gleaning” – “Taking what you don’t use and re-purposing it in another way,” he said, adding “There is far too much waste. We have to learn to think bigger and smarter.”
Assemblyman Eustace, who also is Vice-Chair of the Health and Senior Services Committee in New Jersey, is a Ramapo College alumnus, Class of 1978.
