One World Women
Celine Cousteau is an activist, advocate, explorer, and filmmaker who follows in the footsteps of her grandfather, famed explorer Jacques Cousteau, in making the public at large more aware of the world we live in. She first experienced diving just before the age of nine, when her grandfather gave her a quick but integral lesson in the waters off the coast of Monaco. In this video, Cousteau and Deepak discuss the state of the ocean today, and the ways in which she utilizes her production company, CauseCentric Productions, to share the stories of people working to make a difference around the world.
