Announcing a new Meetup for Chicago Rock Climbing MeetUP!
What: Earth Day 2010 Keynote
When: Thursday, April 22,[masked]:00 PM
Pick-Staiger Concert Hall
50 Arts Circle Drive
Evanston, IL 60208
Okay, this is not climbing-related but I figure that most climbers have a love of adventure and a love of the outdoors in general. And, c'mon, it's the son of Jacques Cousteau so it's got to have both of those points, right??
And admission is **free**! The keynote is scheduled for 7:00-8:30pm on Northwestern's Evanston campus.
> Join us as we welcome Jean-Michel Cousteau for a presentation titled
> "The Other 70%: Understanding the Earth's Underwater Ecosystems".
> Jean-Michel, the son of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, has
> investigated the world?s oceans for much of his life. An explorer,
> environmentalist, educator, and film producer, Cousteau has received
> an Emmy and the Peabody Award, and was further honored with the
> Environmental Hero Award during the Clinton administration. Jean-
> Michel founded Ocean Futures Society in 1999, an organization intended
> to serve as a ?Voice for the Ocean?. OFS has tirelessly communicated
> through all media the critical bond between human and oceanic
> ecosystems, and the fundamental importance of responsible
> environmental stewardship.
