The grandson of Jacques Cousteau is coming to Western Connecticut State University Thursday to talk about his grandfather's legacy and taking it one step further. The Jane Goodall Center for Excellence in Environmental Studies is hosting Fabien Cousteau for a discussion about Mission 31. He will explain the epic expedition that's one day longer and based twice as deep as his grandfather's expedition 50 years ago this year.
Cousteau will discuss connections between water, the planet and our health. He will also talk about how innovative ideas are shaping environmental policy reform.
The lecture by the deep ocean explorer is at 8 pm on Thursday, in Ives Concert Hall in White Hall on the Midtown campus. Tickets for “One Ocean, One People” are on sale at www.wcsu.edu/tickets or by calling (203) 837-TIXX.
