As part of Columbia College’s Schiffman Ethics in Society Lecture series, the college will host Jean-Michel Cousteau, who will present his lecture: “Ethics and Science.” The Schiffman Ethics in Society lecture, which will be held March 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Launer Auditorium, was designed to engage students, faculty, staff and the Columbia community about ethical issues in contemporary society.
Jean-Michel Cousteau is an explorer, environmentalist and film producer. For more than 40 years, Cousteau has explored the oceans, educating audiences around the world on the importance of protecting our global waters. In 1999, Cousteau founded the Ocean Futures Society, a nonprofit marine education and conservation organization that creatively promotes the importance of wise environmental policies.
In addition to his work as a marine explorer and educator, Cousteau also is an accomplished film producer, and has received the Sept d’Or, Cable Ace Award and the Peabody Award.
In addition to the lecture, the college also will host a panel discussion with Cousteau at 3:30 p.m. in Dorsey Gymnasium; the panel is open to students, faculty and staff. For more information, please visit: www.ccis.edu/schiffmanlecture/ethics/
