In honor of World Water Day, we are excited to announce the 2019 class of EarthEcho Water Challenge Ambassadors! Coordinated by EarthEcho International's Youth Leadership Council (YLC) and sponsored by Xylem Watermark, the Water Challenge Ambassadors will increase knowledge of local water resources throughout their communities by leading citizens through water quality monitoring events and water restoration and conservation programs. Ambassadors will also have the opportunity to increase their own skills in the field of water monitoring and conservation through professional development opportunities and trainings throughout the year.
Water Challenge Ambassadors were selected through a nationwide application process and will serve a year term. “Our EarthEcho Water Challenge Ambassadors are instrumental in continuing the global effort to preserve our planet’s most precious resource for generations to come,” said EarthEcho International Founder Philippe Cousteau, Jr. “We are excited by the passion and vision of this group of young environmental champions who are working within their communities to help increase understanding of the importance of local waterways and inspiring others to join in taking action to protect them.”

In addition to our new class of Ambassadors, we are also excited to welcome twelve returning members of our 2018 class, who will take on a role as Senior Water Challenge Ambassadors, expanding their work in the year ahead.
