EarthEcho Expeditions represents the culmination of more than a decade of working with educators and youth from around the world. EarthEcho Expeditions uses the thrill of adventure to inspire a new generation of environmental champions. – Philippe Cousteau, Jr., Founder, EarthEcho International
EarthEcho Expeditions is an annual program that leverages the rich Cousteau legacy of exploration and discovery to bring STEM education content alive for today’s 21st century learners and their educators. Each EarthEcho Expedition begins with a week-long exploration of a geographic area facing an environmental crisis, examining the impacts that humans have on communities and water resources across the globe. In conjunction with local research and advocacy partners as well as the Expedition Fellows, we film and produce an education module for each Expedition. Each module combines:
- Vibrant exploration videos
- Environmental audits
- Examples of environmental actions championed by youth
- Profiles of STEM professionals
A series of live virtual events are also hosted throughout the school year to engage students with voices that inspire action around environmental challenges from Expedition.
In Fall 2017, the EarthEcho team will join educators and scientists in Southern California to examine drought and water scarcity. Twenty five exceptional middle school teachers (Expedition Fellows) will be selected to join in this exploration.
