  • EarthEcho International
    Co-Founder and President

    EarthEcho International was founded in honor of my father Philippe Cousteau Sr. and is well on its way to becoming one of the leading names in environmental education, with broad partnerships that allow our organization to reach educators across the country. Our mission is to empower youth with the knowledge and tools to take action that protects and restores our water planet.  Working with our sponsors and partners, we provide our resources free of charge to thousands of educators, youth, and families across the United States .  Research consistently shows that young people play a major role in environmental decision-making at home, influencing their parents’ behaviors and guiding family decisions with regard to recycling, energy use, and water use and believe it or not…even how they vote on environmental issues.
