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:

  • 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.

“I have some fabulous data about the impact of the STEMExplore videos and reflection on my middle school students. My students overwhelmingly loved the videos. Many of them are now considering a STEM career highlighted in the videos.”  Susan Tate, Middle School teacher

“Being a part of the EarthEcho Water Challenge has not only highlighted the importance of taking care of our fresh water resources, but has provided our student leaders the opportunity to teach others, be connected directly to the forefront of water quality issues, and a platform to share our results with the planet. EarthEcho and its vast resources, network and their willingness to collaborate with our organization has been a significant component of our growth and success in delivering conservation leadership education.”  Casey Sokolovic, Founder, Love A Sea Turtle

“Just as water is the most vital resource we have in our bodies, it is the most vital resource we have in our communities: ubiquitous in countless forms. Monitoring water and preserving water quality is key to maintaining the health of a society.” Gloria Li, EarthEcho Youth Leadership Council member

“Living Lands & Waters is proud to partner with EarthEcho International by engaging its students in the Water Challenge! By using LaMotte water quality testing kits, students from around the Mississippi River Basin collect and analyze data on LL&W’s floating classroom. LL&W is excited for this partnership to bring more real world examples of water preservation into the classroom!” Meghan Elgan, Education Coordinator, Living Lands & Waters

“We all learned the value of what it meant to have clean water and what we can do collectively to keep our waterways clean. As we taught the students, they taught us." Xylem Watermark Volunteer, Cheri Hinton on her experience leading students through the EarthEcho Water Challenge
