    Earthwatch: Inspiring a World of Connections

    At Earthwatch, we’re all about inspiring connections: In science to understand and preserve our natural world, in education to nurture new generations of environmental leaders, in people to bring them closer to our planet and each other, and in business to empower companies to adopt more sustainable methods. This celebratory booklet showcases more than 40 years of Earthwatch connections and the results they have achieved within our broad and diverse mission.
