The Voices of Social Change spring 2017 lecture served as a launch-pad to invigorate student curiosity and individual research into the intersections between the environment and environmental activism. The Jean-Michel Cousteau Voices program on April 18, 2017 addressed how students could use their voice and vote in powerful ways exercising  their civic duty to best represent their individual positions on the salient issue of climate change. In addition, Mr. Cousteau guided students to avenues on how to get involved politically in effective ways: writing letters and meeting with their congressional representatives and lobbying campus administration to divest away from non-environmentally friendly practices.
