Inspiring Minds: An Evening with the Cousteau Family – May 7th

AUT Book

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity on May 7th as Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of Jacques-Yves), and his children Céline and Fabien, help open up our minds to a world of sustainability, conservation, climate change and innovation.  It is often said that the world below the ocean’s surface is a world otherwise unrealized and unknown to those who walk on dry land.  In fact, it is a world that will force us to take pause and consider the future of our existence on earth–the blessings and the challenges.  Order Tickets and Learn more.
