2016 Lowell Lecture

Philippe Cousteau will share stories of how his father and grandfather inspired him to carry on a legacy that fostered the environmental movement in the 20th century. He will discuss his latest projects, which extend from Wall Street to Hollywood, and talk about how new approaches to storytelling and sustainability are needed if we are to solve the critical social and environmental issues facing us today.

Philippe is an Emmy-nominated TV host, author, speaker, and social entrepreneur, and the son of Philippe Cousteau Sr. and grandson of Jacques Cousteau. Cousteau has established himself as a prominent leader in the environmental movement, focusing his global conservation efforts on solving social and environmental problems. In 2004 he founded EarthEcho International, a leading environmental education organization dedicated to inspiring youth to take action for a sustainable planet. His life's mission is "to empower people to recognize their ability to change the world."

This event is free and open to the public.

The Lowell Lecture is an annual event cosponsored by Harvard Extension School and the Lowell Institute of Boston. Since 1980, the Lowell Lecture has served the Cambridge community with a platform to discuss the major issues of our time.
