Improve Environmental Health in Your Community

Philippe Cousteau’s EarthEcho International has partnered with Discovery Education to launch the Water Planet Challenge, designed to engage and empower youth to bring about environmental change starting with water-focused projects at a local level. The Web-based program provides interactive tools and resources for middle and high school–aged youth to design, create and implement service-learning projects that address environmental concerns in their communities, from water conservation to beachfront cleanups. Among the free resources are step-by-step action guides that walk students through a project from investigation to completion; standards-aligned lesson plans that allow middle and high school teachers and students to explore the impact of local action in the context of the recent Gulf oil disaster; and video segments on a variety of environmental topics educators can seamlessly integrate into existing curricula, as well as a link to Philippe Cousteau’s recent webinar on his experiences in the Gulf of Mexico following the oil spill. In the coming months, additional action guides and lesson plans on other water-related environmental issues and additional video clips will further support the Water Planet Challenge.
