EarthEcho International is a global nonprofit founded on the belief that youth have the power to change our planet. It was established by explorer and advocate Philippe Cousteau, Jr, in honor of his father, Philippe Cousteau Sr., and grandfather, legendary explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau. EarthEcho leverages adventure, storytelling, and STEM education to empower and inspire young people worldwide to act now for a sustainable future with a focus on ocean health, water quality, and biodiversity. EarthEcho reaches more than 2 million people in 146 countries, providing original content, immersive experiences, and trusted resources free of charge for youth and the educators and community leaders who work with them.
We concentrate our work in three areas that leverage the organizations rich legacy and unique strengths:
Facilitating the preservation and protection of the environment;
Amplifying youth leadership development; and
Training teachers and educating students
These priorities inform our signature programs that equip individuals and groups to identify local needs, develop plans, and take action related to ocean health, water quality, and biodiversity.
