Tudor Elementary Receives New Resources from Philippe Cousteau's EarthEcho International to Protect Community Water

EarthEcho International, the environmental education and youth leadership organization founded by explorer and environmental advocate Philippe Cousteau Jr., is helping support the efforts of Tudor Elementary School to empower the next generation of water scientists and stewards with a donation of water quality test kits through the EarthEcho Water Challenge. These test kits will enable young people working with Global Education Alaska to sample the waters of Campbell Creek for a core set of water quality parameters including temperature, pH (acidity), turbidity (clarity) and dissolved oxygen (DO).

The EarthEcho Water Challenge is an international education and outreach program that builds public awareness and involvement in protecting water resources around the world by engaging citizens in conducting basic monitoring of their local water bodies and equips them with the tools to take action to protect their water resources.

Program participants will share their water quality data through the EarthEcho Water Challenge global database, contributing to a network of water quality data collected by 1.5 million citizens from more than 140 countries. They will ultimately utilize this data to help inform actions to protect local water resources.

Tudor Elementary School (Global Education Alaska) was selected to receive this large donation from dozens of applications received from around the world.

Contact: Michelle Carton for more information on how she implements water ecology and conservation into her program, Young Global Citizens.

The EarthEcho Water Challenge is made possible through the generous support of Xylem, Inc. and the engagement of community partners around the world. Learn more at www.MonitorWater.org and join the conversation with #MonitorWater.
