Alexandra Cousteau is an environmentalist, film-maker, and global advocate of the importance of conservation, restoration and sustainable management of water resources. She is currently a Senior Advisor for Oceana, presides on the prestigious Young Global Leaders Council and serves on the Global Agenda Council on Oceans of the World Economic Forum.

In 2008, Alexandra was honoured as a National Geographic “Emerging Explorer”—an elite group of eleven visionary young trailblazers who push the boundaries of discovery, adventure, and global problem solving. Alexandra was also made an “Earth Trustee” by the UN, was named a “Principle Voice” by CNN International, and regularly delivers testimony on critical policy issues before governmental agencies. In 2010, Alexandra and her brother Philippe were named to Vanity Fair’s coveted “Next” list.

Alexandra’s latest initiative, Blue Legacy, was created to inspire people to take action on critical water issues, and to help shape society’s dialogue to include water as one of the defining issues of the century and a critical component of climate change.

She is currently working on a book that will redefine what it means to live on a Water Planet through the exploration of different water ecosystems around the world and how they are interdependent. She is also planning a series of expeditions around the world to chronicle the connectivity of global water issues and their impact on our lives.
