IGES GLOBE Partnership
January 6, 2017
The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program
GLOBE fits in with IGES’s broad organizational goal to foster national and international cooperation in Earth observations. These efforts–designed to improve understanding of and response to natural and human-induced changes in the Earth system–require multidisciplinary approaches to complex and critical social, environmental and economic challenges.
A new GLOBE Partner beginning 2017, IGES’s goals for our partnership are to promote understanding and use of Earth observation data – including GLOBE, NASA, and other environmental data – by educators and students. The Institute is currently planning teacher professional development activities for later in 2017.
