EarthEcho International

Washington, D.C.
United States

EarthEcho International is a nonprofit organization founded on the belief that youth have the power to change our planet. Established by siblings Philippe and Alexandra Cousteau in honor of their father Philippe Cousteau Sr., and grandfather legendary explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau, our mission is to inspire young people worldwide to act now for a sustainable future.  

EarthEcho’s programs are developed for and by youth and the educators and community leaders that support them. All of our resources are designed to equip new generations of trailblazers and problem solvers to identify and tackle environmental challenges in their own communities and beyond. Our work is focused in three main action areas:

Inspire – EarthEcho’s STEMExplore highlights relatable voices and exciting life experiences to make careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) come alive. STEMExplore kindles youth interest in solving problems and becoming critical thinkers about the world around them. The program features a series of interactive videos profiling STEM experts and thought leaders from around the world meeting a critical need by fostering the next generation of STEM professionals.

Cultivate – EarthEcho Expeditions is an annual program that leverages the rich Cousteau legacy of exploration and discovery to bring STEM education alive for today’s 21st century learners and their educators. Grounded in current real-world issues, each Expedition combines adventure, exploration, and engaging teaching in order to provide students with the tools they need to address today’s increasingly complex and changing environment, starting in their own communities. Our efforts also reach youth directly. EarthEcho’s Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is comprised of 19 diverse leaders from across the country and Baghdad, Iraq, ages 15-22, each YLC member is an emerging trailblazer that has demonstrated an ability to engage and mobilize their peers and their communities to change the world. Through EarthEcho’s platforms, YLC members are empowered to develop programs and conduct outreach to youth around the world.

Activate - The EarthEcho Water Challenge is an international program that equips anyone to combat the global water crisis starting in their own communities. Through the simple actions of testing and sharing data about a community’s water, EarthEcho Water Challenge participants become part of a growing movement of 1.4 million citizens in 143 countries who are working to conserve and protect water resources around the globe.
