PLEASANTVILLE, N. Y. — More than 150 high school students from schools in Westchester and Rockland counties will participate in Pace’s Environmental University Day on Thursday, October 26, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Kessel Campus Center. High schools that plan to attend the event include Sleepy Hollow High School, John Jay High School, Pleasantville High School, Woodlands High School, Katonah Lewisboro School for Experimental Education, Nyack High School and North Rockland High School.

Throughout the day, students will be divided into groups to participate in environmental studies mini-classes and hands-on field experiences focused around the campus’ pond, streams and nature trails. Interactive classrooms topics include Is the Water Safe to Drink?, Using Bugs to Determine Stream Health, The Influence of Religions on our View of the Environment and Its Value, The Life of the Pond and West Nile Virus vs. Spraying.

“High school students should be made aware of the effects that humans have on their environment. For example, while the West Nile Virus threatens humans and birds, spraying insecticides has benefits but can also pose health risk,” said William Ventura, Pace’s resident toxicologist and biology professor. “The goal of Environmental University Day is to help these students develop skills and knowledge and an appreciation of their role in preserving their health and the health of the environment now and in the future.”

John Cronin, former Hudson Riverkeeper and Pace resident scholar in environmental studies, will offer a special lecture on the Hudson River and environmental advocacy. The program also includes a birds of prey flying demonstration with the birds housed in Pace’s Environmental Center.

Pace is a comprehensive, independent University with campuses in New York City and Westchester County. Nearly 13,500 students are enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and professional degree programs in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Lubin School of Business, School of Computer Science and Information Systems, School of Education, School of Law, Lienhard School of Nursing and the World Trade Institute.

NEW YORK – Pace University School of Law and the Great Atlantic & Pacific
Tea Company (A&P), in participation with the Elizabeth Haub Foundation for
Environmental Law and Policy, will honor two ambassadors for their work in
furthering international environmental causes. Tan Sri Razali Ismail of
Malaysia and Bo John Kjellen of Sweden will receive the inaugural Elizabeth
Haub Prize for Environmental Diplomacy during a dinner and ceremony at the
New York Marriott Financial Center Hotel at 8 p.m. on May 11.

The Haub Prize was established in memory of the late Elizabeth Haub, grand-
mother of A&P President and CEO, Christian Haub, who is hosting the dinner
and commemorative tribute to Elizabeth’s life and contributions. This year
marks the 100th anniversary of her birth. During her lifetime, Elizabeth
Haub was a great philanthropist and conservation enthusiast. She established
the Karl-Schmitz-Scholf-Fund for Environmental Policy and Law in Germany to
provide financial support to projects that have proved vital to the development
of international environmental law and policy.

Tan Sri Razali Ismail of Malaysia has advanced the fabric of multilateral
environmental diplomatic negotiations through his leadership in the United
Nations. He was instrumental to the U.N. Conference on Environment and
Development in 1992 and served as chairman of the 1st Session of the U.N.
Commission on Sustainable Development. He forged effective working relation-
ships for the involvement of the Civil Society in the United Nations’ efforts
for sustainability. While President of the 52nd U.N. General Assembly, Razali
continued to bridge the divides among nations. As President of the 19th
Assembly on Environment and Development, he kept alive the “Spirit of Rio.”

Bo John Kjellen of Sweden brought his resourceful and wise participation in
the negotiations of several important agreements, including the Climate
Convention, and participated in the U.N. Conference on Environment and Develop-
ment in 1992. He chaired the Intergovernmental Committee for the Negotiations
of a Convention to Combat Desertification and led its interim secretariat.
He ensured that the Rio recommendation to establish a global approach to
desertification was realized.

The Elizabeth Haub Prize for Environmental Diplomacy was established by the
International Council of Environmental Law (ICEL) and Pace University School
of Law in 1997, and announced in 1998. An independent jury deliberated on
the selection of the honorees. Based in Germany, ICEL is a public interest
organization with the aim of promoting the exchange of information on the
legal, administrative and policy aspects of environmental conservation and
sustainable development.

“A&P is the oldest supermarket chain in the United States and has a long
history of supporting environmental causes, including our annual consumer
education program called Project Earth,” said Christian Haub. “This initial
awarding of the Elizabeth Haub Prize for Environmental Diplomacy is another
important way for A&P to help support worldwide environmental concerns.
Elizabeth Haub was an environmentalist long before that word was coined.
We wish to recognize her outstanding leadership in protecting the environment.”

A&P operates combination food and drug stores, conventional supermarkets and
limited assortment food stores in 18 U.S. States, the District of Columbia,
and Ontario, Canada, under the A&P, Waldbaum’s, Food Emporium, Super Fresh,
Farmer Jack, Kohl’s, Sav-A-Center, Dominion, and Food Basic Trade Names.

N.Y. Governor George Pataki Credits Pace University Students During Earth Day Address

New York Governor George E. Pataki today credited Pace University students with assisting in his newest initiative to clean up the Hudson River. During an Earth Day address on the Beacon, N.Y., waterfront, Pataki announced that New York will ask the federal government to designate a section of the Hudson River a “no discharge” zone. Pace students’ research demonstrated that a 153-mile stretch of the river would likely qualify for the Environmental Protection Agency designation. The “no discharge” designation, based on the number of adequate pump out facilities, would prohibit boats from dumping sewage in the Hudson River.

Pace University Political Science Class Drafts Proposed Environmental Bill,
Lobbies Albany to Protect Hudson River

PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y., April 22, 1999 — New York Governor George E. Pataki today credited Pace University students with assisting in his newest initiative to clean up the Hudson River. During an Earth Day address on the Beacon, N.Y., waterfront, Pataki announced that New York will ask the federal government to designate a section of the Hudson River a “no discharge” zone. Pace students’ research demonstrated that a 153-mile stretch of the river would likely qualify for the Environmental Protection Agency designation. The “no discharge” designation, based on the number of adequate pump out facilities, would prohibit boats from dumping sewage in the Hudson River.

The students also worked with Assemblyman Richard Brodsky resulting in a bill (Assembly 958a) that would require the State Department of Environmental Conservation to maintain the number of pump out facilities required by the EPA. The New York State Assembly Environmental Conservation Committee passed the bill unanimously this week. The student-inspired bill, “Hudson River Marine Sanitation Act,” was amended from a statewide initiative proposed and defeated for at least the past 20 years.

So, for all those cynics who believe that Generation Xers are apathetic to social causes – meet the students in Professor Greg Julian’s and John Cronin’s political science class at Pace University. These “20-somethings” conducted extensive research, amended an environmental bill and lobbied state senators and local assembly members in an effort to prevent boats from dumping sewage into the Hudson River.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about public policy in a democracy by practicing citizen advocacy,” Julian said.

“Issues in Public Policy: The Hudson River,” is co-taught with Hudson Riverkeeper John Cronin, an Environmental Studies Lecturer in Pace University’s Dyson College of Arts and Sciences. The class introduced students first hand to the political process: their efforts included face-to-face lobbying of state senators and assembly members in Albany; providing every marina along the Hudson River with a grant application for proposed funding toward pumpout facilities; and constructing a class Website to highlight the students’ activities: http://webpage.pace.edu/pol222

During the semester, the class sponsored a series of guest lectures to learn how to advocate for the environment and actively collaborate to write legislation. The series featured five of New York State’s leading advocates, including John Cahill, commissioner of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Chris Meyer, director of New York Public Interest Research Group, Pete Seeger, musician, songwriter, and founder of Clearwater movement, Richard Brodsky, chair of the New York State Assembly Environmental Conservation Commission, Judith Kimerling, renowned author, professor and environmental lawyer, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental litigator and Pace University law professor.

WHITE PLAINS, NY — The Pace University School of Law will celebrate
World Environment Day beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 5, by
honoring David R. Brower, chairman and founder of the Earth Island
Institute. During the event, the School also will inaugurate The
Brower Public Interest Environmental Loan Forgiveness Program Fund,
enabling public interest-minded students to receive up to $15,000 to
pay back their loans and begin their environmental public interest
service career immediately upon graduation.

The event includes a ceremony and dinner on the lawn being held at
the Pace Law School campus, 78 North Broadway, White Plains, NY. For
more information, please call Karen Ferro at (914) 422-4142.

The Pace University School of Law and the Center for Environmental
Legal Studies are honoring David Brower for his commitment to
raising the environ-mental consciousness of three generations of
world citizens.

“Many students who graduate from law school have to forego a career
in public interest law because their debt outweighs their calling
for service. We hope that this program at Pace will help alleviate
that,” said Richard Ottinger, dean of the Pace University School of
Law. The loan program will be funded through contributions to this
event and private gifts.

Brower’s long battle to raise awareness about the environment began
at age 21 when he joined the Sierra Club. Eventually becoming
executive director, he helped to create one of the world’s major
environmental advocacy organizations.

In 1969, he founded the Friends of the Earth organization and, in
1982, founded the Earth Island Institute, expanding international
consciousness and a philosophy about environmentalism that embraces
peace and social justice world-wide.

In 1994, Brower co-founded the Ecological Council of Americas to
focus on problems associated with environmental and economic
integration. He co-authored Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers
Run, released in 1995, pioneering “tree-free publishing.” For
Earth’s Sake: The Life and Times of David Brower, and Work in
Progress is a two-volume autobiography available from the Earth
Island Institute.

Brower’s current advocacy issues include the creation of a National
Biosphere Reserve System and the replacement of the Bureau of Land
Management with the National Land Service. Both initiatives
acknowledge the limits of ecological survivability and the profound
connectedness of all life.

Founded in 1976, the Law School has nearly 4,000 alumni and
offers day and evening classes on its White Plains campus. The
School of Law, which is recognized as having outstanding specialized
law programs, such as the environmental law program, is part of a
comprehensive, independent and diversified university with 14,000
students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate degree programs in
Pace’s Dyson College of Arts, Lubin School of Business, School of
Computer Science and Information Systems, School of Education, and
Lienhard School of Nursing.
