On this World Water Day, March 22, I challenge NMEA members and their students to take action to protect our water planet through the EarthEcho Water Challenge. Kicking off annually on the United Nations World Water Day, the EarthEcho Water Challenge equips young people with the tools to test local water quality, share their findings though a global database, and use their data to inform actions they can take to protect their waterways. By participating, students join over 1.5 million participants from 146 countries who have monitored local waterways through this program.

EarthEcho Water Challenge YouthThis World Water Day, and throughout the year, you can take action through three easy steps:

  1. Visit to order an EarthEcho Water Challenge test kit and download our guide to help you plan your monitoring event. Or use your own water quality testing equipment/kits.
  2. Conduct your water quality monitoring and share your data at
  3. Take action to improve water health in your community!

Through the EarthEcho Water Challenge, we encourage participants to share the stories of their findings and unique water resources, the challenges they face, and the efforts of students and community members to restore these important bodies of water.

EarthEcho Water ChallengeAs we kick-off the 2019 EarthEcho Water Challenge this World Water Day, I’m excited to share the release of the new EarthEcho Water Challenge Action Portal. This platform, which can be accessed at, highlights stories of Water Challenge participants who have carried out diverse waterway conservation projects, and shares their tips, advice, and action steps to help inspire others to replicate their efforts. Participants also have the option to submit their own water quality action projects to be featured through the portal. I hope you’ll join us in taking action this World Water Day, and throughout the year, to work with your students and community members to monitor and protect your local waterways. Be sure to join the conversation on March 22 with hashtag #MonitorWater and follow EarthEcho on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more.
