Alcoa Earthwatch Fellows... tackling the biggest sustainability challenges of our time!
Through a partnership between Alcoa, Alcoa Foundation and the Earthwatch Institute, Alcoa Earthwatch Fellows work alongside Earthwatch scientists on critical environmental research projects around the world – helping to unlock solutions to some of the biggest sustainability challenges of our time.
In 2011, 25 Alcoa employees representing Alcoa’s global business from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Hungary, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Spain, Suriname and the United States helped shape a more sustainable future.
This year’s Alcoa Earthwatch Fellows will be contributing to critical environmental research projects at the Rio Cachoeira Natural Reserve in Paraná State, Brazil and the Gutianshan National Nature Reserve in Zhejiang Province, China.
In addition to contributing to the knowledge needed to build a sustainable future, this hands-on support for scientific fieldwork provides Fellows a rich understanding of global environmental challenges and how individual daily behaviors, both at work and at home, can contribute to a more sustainable future.
The Earthwatch curriculum helps Fellows translate their scientific learnings from the field to day-to-day life at work and in the community.
The program is just one of many global and local outreach programs supported by Alcoa and Alcoa Foundation to address environmental sustainability.
This year’s Alcoa Earthwatch Fellows will set out for three expeditions:
  • Brazil: July 31 - August 5
  • China: August 21 - 27 
  • Brazil: September 18 - 23
