Sustainable Seas: The Vision, the Reality
Oceanographer and National Geographic explorer-in-residence Sylvia Earlewill headline an entertainment-filled evening looking at the wonder of Earth’s “blue heart”—its oceans. Distinguished as Time magazine’s first Hero for the Planet and named a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, Earle has conducted pioneering research on marine ecosystems and led more than 100 expeditions beneath the sea. Folk-rock musician Mason Jennings will open the evening with an acoustic performance. Visit the Momentum 2011 event site for full details on the evening event and to purchase tickets. 

The May 12 event is the third of three environment-themed evenings sponsored by the Institute on the Environment as part of its new Momentum 2011 series. The other two will be held March 10, with eco-entrepreneur Majora Carter, and April 26, featuring international health guru Hans Rosling.
