Experiential learning is at the core of Earthwatch programs. Members of society are actively engaged in research activities and work alongside renowned scientists gathering data that will help solve real-world issues. Programs may range from one day to two weeks and cater to all aspects of life.

It is the combination of personal experience, learning, and social inclusion that makes Earthwatch programs transformational experiences that create long term behaviour change towards the environment.


Our corporate programs support companies to communicate and embed sustainability strategies. Using a flexible model we co-create employee and stakeholder engagement programs in independent scientific research that is material to business.

Our education programs target teachers and students to transcend learning beyond classroom walls and equip the next generation of leaders with the skills and knowledge needed to innovate and adapt to real world problems. We facilitate teacher training workshops on citizen science and we take both students and teachers in the field on scientific research expeditions.

Students and Teachers


Our public expeditions are for the general community and are at the heart of Earthwatch. People from all walks of life, with no experience necessary, are immersed in field research across the globe. Experiencing a holiday like no other, people visit destinations out of bounds to the general tourist, learn from world-class researchers daily and get up close and personal with all kinds of fascinating plants and animals.
