Mission & Values
Our vision is for a world where we live in balance with nature.
We connect people with nature, motivate them to protect the environment and provide them with the knowledge and tools to make change happen.
At Earthwatch, we’re proud not only of what we do and the impact we have but also the way in which we do things. Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers uphold Earthwatch’s values.
We are driven by people
We always show humanity in our bid to save humanity. As colleagues, we treat each other with genuine warmth and respect. In a polarised world, we’re proud to build a friendly movement of local groups, schools, scientists and businesses. Everyone’s voice is welcome and valued.
We are powered by science
Powered by science, it’s science that makes us powerful. We champion findings collected by people at the grassroots to spark change in our neighbourhoods and at the highest levels of government. We’re committed to debate, openness, honesty, listening and always learning.
We connect with nature
Disconnection from nature is at the heart of ecological crisis. Connection is a driving force for change. So let’s get our boots – and our hearts – muddy. With smiles on our faces, we inspire people to get out into nature, have fun, discover what we all stand to lose, and take action.
We fight for our planet
The environmental crisis is relentless. We, too, never give up. Each day we fight for our fragile earth, not through protest, but practical science. From planting Tiny Forests to protecting the world’s freshwater habitats, our evidence-based solutions are the seeds of our planet’s survival.
