EarthEcho International

EarthEcho International’s mission is to inspire young people worldwide to act now for a sustainable future.  We are a nonprofit 501c3 organization founded in 2000 by siblings Philippe and Alexandra Cousteau in honor of their father Philippe Cousteau Sr., son of the legendary explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau.  Philippe Sr.’s belief in “a world where every single child can breathe fresh air, drink clean water, and walk on green grass under a blue sky” serves as our vision to this day.

Our approach is simple; EarthEcho’s 21st century tools and interactive resources equip youth to identify and solve environmental challenges starting in their own communities.
