MAHWAH, N.J. – Ramapo College of New Jersey has been selected as one of the regional hosts for the State of New Jersey’s 2021 “Solve Climate by 2030” initiative, a week-long global project organized by the Center for Environmental Policy (CEP) at Bard College, New York, involving more than 100 universities and colleges.

Ramapo College’s virtual webinar will take place on April 7 from 6-8 p.m. The event, moderated by Ramapo Professor of Environmental Studies Ashwani Vasishth, will include presentations on New Jersey climate solutions and online discussions with participants. The event is free and open to the public. Registration information can be found at: https://solve-climate-by-2030-nj.eventbrite.com

To focus the world on regional-level and local solutions, the CEP at Bard College is organizing simultaneous “global dialog” webinars, one in fifty different countries, and in every U.S. state. Beginning on April 6, discussions will take place from climate solutions experts in Hungary, South Africa, and Kyrgyzstan, as well as states across America — 100 sites worldwide — about ambitious but feasible actions that could happen soon in their state to “spur a just, Green Recovery, get the world on track to solving climate by 2030.”

Ramapo College has been recognized as a leader in sustainability education for decades. The College’s innovative Sharp Sustainability Education Center is a faculty/student driven environmental education facility that demonstrates alternative methods of producing and using resources, particularly energy, food, and shelter, that were not heavily based on depleting and polluting sources of fossil fuels. The Center further incorporates environmental literacy and understanding of sustainability into the Ramapo curriculum across disciplines. Students can take advantage of both volunteer and for-credit internship opportunities available through the Center.
