The Blue Ocean Film Festival comes to Auburn March 21-23

We were only given one world to live in, and taking care of this planet should be something that we take seriously. Auburn University has always taken the initiative to help develop sustainability programs that help make Auburn a better campus. 

Next week will be the beginning of “No Impact Week” at Auburn University. Students, faculty and staff are invited to conserve and reduce their impact on the environment with their participation next week. This is going to be a week-long challenge organized by Auburn University’s College of Liberal Arts Community and Civic Engagement Initiative. They are working in collaboration with the CCE Student Club, office of sustainability, and the department of communication and journalism. You can check out this website for a full list of events that will be taking place this week.

The Blue Ocean Film Festival will be March 21-23, in Biggin Hall 05. It’s going to focus on the topic of conservation. The festival consists of three days of free film screenings, and there will also be talks by world renowned filmmakers and conservationists.

Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of the famous ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, will be in Auburn to kick off the festival at 5 p.m. Thursday to screen his film, “My Father the Captain.” He will be available afterward for questions and a book signing.
