Alongside our regular Thames WaterBlitz, delivered in partnership with Thames Water, we have partnered with Royal Bank of Canada to help research institutions in Dublin, Luxembourg, and Paris to run events in each city. By doing this, we will be able to directly compare water quality data collected at the same time across Europe.
We really enjoyed meeting the environmentalists, presenters and natural history filmmakers of the future at this special Wildscreen Festival event.
The 'environmental shorts' created by the talented finalists of the Young Earthwatcher Film Competition were all brilliant. Our diverse panel of professionals were on hand to discuss the films and select a winner.
Food for thought: can veganism save the planet?

We invite you to join our speakers for this Earthwatch Debate.

We need to take action now to save our planet. We invite you to join our debate with special guest speakers including Tony Juniper CBE, Natalie Fee and Simon King OBE on feeding the planet, protecting our fresh water, saving our oceans and addressing wildlife declines - and the potential repercussions of failing to meet the key Sustainable Development biosphere Goals.
