Earthwatch: Our Offer to Business - Employee Engagement and Professional Development


Start a conversation with us to get your company involved.

Our award-winning and unique programs help develop employees into environmental leaders. Employees return to work with an increased awareness of their organization’s sustainability agenda. Whether it’s a two-day experience, or an immersive week long program, our goal is to motivate your team to act on your business risks and opportunities with a heightened focus on sustainability.

By connecting people with nature through hands-on experiences in environmental research, their learning is more deeply embedded. They are more likely to identify and act on risks and opportunities that arise as you evolve your sustainability strategy.

“Achieving a more sustainable world requires participation at every level, from large sweeping actions of many to meaningful individual actions. My favorite part about our partnership with Earthwatch is seeing how our creative employees implement their learnings in their communities upon their return, creating a ripple effect of change, hopefully for years to come.”
