Phillipe Cousteau, grandson of legendary global environmental activist Jacques Cousteau, is teaching a new generation about current environmental issues as host of CNN’s Going Green series.
“As a special correspondent reporting on environmental and humanitarian issues around the world, I work on compelling stories that meld advocacy, amazing adventure television and new media to engage people across the globe in positive change.” Cousteau travels to the Arctic Circle to explore climate change. He explores the island of Sumatra in Indonesia to showcase “30 Hills,” which is subject to wanton deforestation.
As the co-founder and president EarthEcho International, Phillipe Cousteau engages and empowers young people to take action for a brighter future. He uses education, balanced advocacy and a commitment to action.
