FreshWater Watch is a global project run by Earthwatch Europe, an environmental charity with science at its heart. We train and empower communities around the world to measure and monitor the health of their rivers, lakes, streams, ponds and wetlands, so that we can restore freshwater resources, together.
The resulting data is open-access and provides the robust evidence needed to support global efforts to improve water quality.
Since FreshWater Watch was first launched in 2012, Earthwatch has expanded this project to reach thousands of volunteers, research organisations, businesses, authorities and schools across the world. By monitoring their local waterbodies, local citizen scientists contribute vital knowledge to a unified global effort to improve the health of fresh water for everyone.
