EarthEcho International believes youth have the power to change our planet.

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.


Enter the OurEcho Challenge

The OurEcho Challenge is a STEM innovation competition that empowers U.S. middle school students to take a closer look at biodiversity in their communities. Students will first identify threats to local ecosystems and then propose solutions to help preserve, protect, or repair those natural resources.  

10 finalist teams will join EarthEcho International in Washington, DC, where they will present their ideas to restore or protect local biodiversity. The top three teams will be awarded grants to turn their projects into a reality.
