Fabien Cousteau keynote speaker
Fabien Cousteau is keynote speaker at the 4th International OTEC Symposium. Fabien Cousteau is aquanaut, oceanographic explorer, conservationist and documentary maker. Fabien grew on the boat of his grandfather, oceanographic explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and learned diving when he was four years old.
Fabien Cousteau is active supporter of increasing sustainability and advocate of OTEC. Fabien Cousteau: “OTEC is a clean energy source, a prime example on how to sustainably make use of our oceans without harming the marine environment. Now we’re at a consciousness level and an urgency level that makes it of paramount importance. You know the island nations in general, whether it’s the Maldives, the Bahamas or Curaçao, are maybe twenty to thirty years ahead of nations that are landlocked. On many levels Curaçao and other island nations are at the forefront of possibilities, of need, and hopefully of desire to integrate these things for the future.”
