EcoWatch's annual Green Gala with Philippe Cousteau

EcoWatch's third annual Green Gala will feature Philippe Cousteau, Jr., the grandson of Captain Jacques Cousteau. Cousteau is continuing his father?s and grandfather?s work of protecting the planet?s water through his advocacy and organization EarthEcho International.

Cousteau is the chief ocean correspondent for Animal Planet and Planet Green channels, where he works on various ocean and water-focused documentary programs. He is the chief spokesperson for Environmental Education for Discovery Education - the number one provider of K-12 broadband-delivered educational content to U.S. schools. Cousteau serves on the board of directors of The Ocean Conservancy, Marine Conservation Biology Institute and National Environmental Education Foundation, as well as the advisory board of Discovery Communications Inc.?s Planet Green.

Cousteau is the author of Going Blue, a book that seeks to inform youth about the issues surrounding our waters and provide the strategies and examples they need to see themselves as change agents. The book is divided among the five stages of service learning?investigation, preparation, action, reflection and demonstration. Teenagers will get an opportunity to meet Cousteau at a pre-event the evening of the Green Gala and receive a copy of the award-winning Going Blue handbook.

EcoWatch's Green Gala will educate, inspire and provide information on the Great Lakes watershed, update on the impacts of the Gulf oil disaster nearly one year after the spill and what you can do to save our planet?s most precious resource.
