Written by service learning expert Cathryn Berger Kaye and celebrity ocean spokesperson Philippe Cousteau, Going Blue educates young people about the earth's water crisis and gives them tools and inspiration to transform their ideas into action. With lively photos and practical suggestions, the book helps teens plan and do a meaningful service project that benefits our planet's water system. Along the way, readers learn about issues such as clean water access, coral reef damage, runoff pollution, trash islands, factory fishing, bottled water, and much more. This combination of academic learning and community service is at the heart of the fast-growing teaching strategy known as service learning.

Cathryn Berger Kaye, M.A., is an international service learning consultant and a former classroom teacher. She works with state departments of education, university faculty and students, school districts, and classroom teachers on a variety of education issues such as service learning, civic responsibility, student leadership, and respectful school communities.

Philippe Cousteau is the son of Jan and Philippe Cousteau Sr., and the grandson of Captain Jacques Cousteau. As a member of the legendary family, Philippe is continuing the work of his father through EarthEcho International, the nonprofit organization he founded with his sister and mother and of which he serves as CEO.

EarthEcho International is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster extraordinary leaders to take action to restore and protect our oceans. Led by Philippe Cousteau, EarthEcho?s programs are dedicated to the legacy of his father, Philippe Cousteau Sr., whose devotion to the conservation and restoration of the oceans is one that can be shared by all people.
