First off, a big thank you to everyone who turned out last night to make the final installment in DEP’s Summer Speaker Series a great success. The diverse viewpoints of Andrew Faust, Kaled Alamarie and Dr. Paul Mankiewicz supplied fodder for an intense debate about how best to achieve “A Sustainable Future”, one I wish we’d only had more time to pursue. Lastly, I want to honor Julia Perciasepe and Jessica Bergeron, my collaborators and consecutive Special Events Coordinators with the Visitor Center at Newtown Creek who made it all possible. Stay tuned for future collaborations…
And while we’re waiting, make sure to check out BOB the Pavilion, the communal composting toilet currently on display at Columbia University. In fact, why not do it tonight AND catch a show? I’ll be in attendance; hope to see you there!
