Raw and Unfiltered Holiday Conversations About The Ocean With the Yurasits Family | Shaped by the Sea
Getting to the heart of the matter isn't easy.
Grab a seat at the table with Brian Yurasits and his Italian-American family from Queens, NY for a no-holds-back conversation about our oceans this Holiday season. Gerard (Brian's Father) is a savvy businessman with his fingers on the pulse of the US economy, and Lauren (Brian's Mother) is a former educator, and media researcher. So how did two parents without any experience in the environmental realm raise a son who has devoted his life to protecting our oceans? And what can we learn from these two about the modern environmental movement? In an age of cancel-culture, online shaming, and tip-toeing around tough conversations, this raw and unfiltered family dialogue presents some important ideas that environmentalists should consider. Learn from the 'School of Hard-Knocks' about how to connect new audiences with ocean conservation issues, and get a little reality check that not everybody agrees with you, but that's okay. We can all learn from one another and move forward together for a better future. Only on ASPN!
