We work side-by-side with our partners to address urgent environmental issues, collect critical data, and empower students, teachers, community members, and members of the public to be sustainability leaders in their classrooms and communities.
Over the last few decades, we have achieved incredible results in working with our foundation partners, with a focus on our education and research programs.
In the last ten years alone, we have provided more than 1,500 students and teachers with the opportunity to work alongside scientists in field research locations around the world. Each of these participants fellows represents hundreds of data points collected, a leader empowered to take action, and a voice speaking out for change.
We also work with foundations who are interested in supporting our research directly. Together we address a number of pressing environmental issues, including climate change, habitat loss and degradation, air and plastic pollution, endangered species, and urban resilience.
Through our partnerships, foundations have a meaningful influence, change lives, and contribute to critical environmental research.
We are continually looking for ways to help solve today's educational and environmental challenges. Our work with Earthwatch helps to expand the learning experience, improve the lives of young people, and build stronger communities.

Sustainable Cities and Communities
As the effects of climate change intensify across the globe, we must create healthy and sustainable cities and communities. Earthwatch is working to support the creation of green urban environments through a series of urban resiliency programs. By working with leading scientists, local communities, and partner organizations, Earthwatch partners with community members to collect critical environmental data related to green infrastructure, trees, water quality, temperature, and air quality. This data helps to answer relevant research questions and influence positive change.
By supporting these programs, your organization can make an impact on urban sustainability and local resilience to climate change.
Our citizen science-fueled research expeditions allow scientists to study and combat urgent environmental issues around the globe, including climate change, habitat loss, pollution, and loss of biodiversity. In nearly 30 countries, these projects inform real-world impacts through community outreach, policy changes, and conservation initiatives. Contributions from our volunteers do not fully cover the costs of running these programs, leaving us to fundraise the remaining amount.
With your support, we can ensure these leading scientists continue to collect essential data while providing an immersive education experience to the public, teens, students, and teachers. Your funding could contribute to the basic costs of running a research project, provide essential equipment upgrades, or could allow scientists to add a new avenue of research to their project.
