Thursday, November 21 from 6:30-8pm
Alumni Center, 716 Columbus Ave, 6th Floor, Boston, Mass.
In 1963, Jacques Cousteau spent 30 days at the bottom of the Red Sea, studying in an underwater habitat built for the most dedicated of sea life enthusiasts. In the coming months, Fabien Cousteau, grandson to the famous oceanographer, will embark on a 31-day project called Mission 31, to mark the 50th anniversary of his grandfather’s memorable underwater mission – and Northeastern University scientists and students will be with him!
Join Fabien Cousteau and Marine Science Center faculty for a lively discussion about Mission 31 and understanding the impact of stress on the marine environment due to human activities. Learn about the threats facing coral reefs and the sustainable practices coastal cities can employ through effective policy.
Light hors d’oeuvres, coffee and dessert will be served
