Inspired and Connected – People and the Natural World (session)
Céline Cousteau is an environmental activist, international speaker, documentary filmmaker, facilitator, and author committed to sharing the vital message of interconnectivity between humans and the natural world. With a degree in Psychology & a Masters in Intercultural Relations, Céline weaves storytelling and experiential practices to help people reconnect to self, community, and Nature.
Founder of CauseCentric Productions, Céline creates impactful, cause-focused content including her feature film, Tribes on the Edge, made at the request of the Indigenous Peoples of the Vale do Javari in the Brazilian Amazon. Catalyzed by the film, Céline co-founded The Javari Project, a for-purpose organization that implements tangible actions for the Indigenous Peoples of the Javari.
Fluent in three languages, Céline’s career has taken her around the globe to the United Nations and the World Economic Forum, to corporate events and universities, and in retreats, workshops, and television programs. Her new podcast Interconnected (in development) will bring the voices of today’s leaders in diverse fields ranging from neuroscience and climatology, from business to music, to entertainment and wellness, focusing on an interconnected approach and mindset to today’s most pressing questions and the part we play in the answers.
In 2024, Céline will join an incredible expedition that will map the length of the Amazon River from a newly discovered spring in Peru, to the Atlantic Ocean : Amazon River: From Ice to Sea.
Céline sits on the board of directors of the National Aquarium in Baltimore, USA – the first in the nation to plan the move of their dolphins to an ocean sanctuary. Her first book, Le monde après monde grand-père is published by Editions Fayard.
