Our planet is facing unprecedented challenges. Climate change and loss of biodiversity threaten our very existence and the beauty of the world as we know it. We are responding to a pandemic that has impacted our way of life. We need to take action now to shape the future we want. Science has identified the causes of these challenges, and science is essential if we’re to face and solve them
Earthwatch Europe is an environmental charity with science at its heart, we are uniquely positioned to help address the urgent challenges our planet faces. From introducing the first tiny forest to the UK in March, to helping people connect with and support nature through our Naturehood programme, to accessing the power of citizen science, our innovative work is more relevant now than ever.
We already have a strong Board, we want to take this opportunity to enrich it further by recruiting additional Trustees with a rich diversity of background, experience and thought. The world has an opportunity to grow back better and greener after the impact of Covid-19, and the solution needs to be inclusive.
Trustees are responsible for the strategic direction and oversight of the Charity, and the appointment of the Chief Executive
