Re3’s CEO, Professor Deborah Boyd, says new graduates represent “the most important generation of our time.

Speaking at the South Eastern Regional College’s 2009 Graduation Ceremony, in the Waterfront Hall, in Belfast, Professor Boyd said the graduates had inherited an “ailing world” but they would be responsible for creating and implementing many of the big environmental solutions our planet so desperately needs today.

"You are the new generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians,” said Professor Boyd.

"Like no generation before you, you need to get involved in solving climate change. You must be innovative and entrepreneurial. You must put your fine young minds to work. This planet depends on it. We depend on it."

Professor Boyd said the environmental technology industry, in Ireland and Britain, had already become a major employer and, in the years to come, the industry would exceed the wealth and influence of today’s leading industries such as IT and Communications.

"Re3 will need people like you to think outside the box; to invent more eco-friendly products and services; to create new ways of protecting our planet and our rich biodiversity; to discover new methods of food production; to take science, technology, engineering and mathematics to a new level. From Healthcare to the High Street, each and every one of you will have an important role to play in the future prosperity and well being of our world,” she said.

Ends.
