Earthwatch is committed to conserving the diversity and integrity of life on Earth to meet the needs of current and future generations. The way we work, and our approach to engaging individuals and organisations in our activities is just as important as the research and education program we carry out in order to deliver our mission . Our values define this approach, and set us apart from other organisations.
Our approach is reasoned, based on independent, scientific data.
We aim to engage all sectors of society, bringing together diverse cultures, nationalities and institutions.
We address important environmental issues that affect people and the environment.
We give people the opportunity to make a difference to their environment.
Our work, support and goals are long-term. We want to make a lasting difference to the environment and communities worldwide.
Earthwatch Australia has long been committed to acknowledging the rights of Indigenous people and the importance of traditional knowledge in the sustainable management of the environment and natural resources. Click here to view our Policy on Engaging with Indigenous People.
