Continuing a Legacy
Philippe Cousteau explores his iconic family legacy and their contributions to global oceanic exploration and conservation, and describes how that experience inspired him growing up. Explorer, social entrepreneur and environmental advocate, he is continuing the work of his father through EarthEcho International to engage and empower people to take action for a brighter future with education, balanced advocacy and a commitment to action. A special correspondent for CNN International, he is also Chief Spokesperson for Environmental Education for Discovery Education, the #1 provider of K-12 broadband delivered educational content to U.S. schools. He was appointed founder and co-chair of the Gulf Action Network for the Clinton Global Initiative. He will reveal not only the discoveries but also the challenges in a rapidly changing world, and why oceans and water are the most important systems on the planet. Using video clips from his father's films and some of his own TV work, he'll explore ways all of us can share in the adventure of building a sustainable future.
