Earth Day 25th Anniversary Celebration

Earth Day, 22 April, 2020, marks the 25th Anniversary of the GLOBE Program. As a community, we have much to be proud of and a lot of work still to do. Celebrations for this special anniversary year begin in earnest on 22 April, Earth Day 2020!
 
Here is the link to 25th Anniversary logos to download for use in your schools and communities.  
 

Ways to Participate

1) Looking back at first 25 years.   

Thanks to all the Regional Coordination Offices who collected and sent historic photos to the GIO for our 25 Years retrospective video. The Video will appear here on 22 April, Earth Day!

2) Celebrate Earth Day with NASA 

On the NASA Earth Day 2020: 50th Anniversary website where you will find resources developed by science experts to help learner of all ages "do" science in ways that activate minds and promote understanding of the Earth system.  NASA's Earth Day 2020: 50th Anniversary Toolkit full of resources that are available to teachers and students, parents, civic leaders, museums  and anyone else  to use. More information is coming about activities you can do at home. 

2)  POSTPONED: Trees Challenge 2020: Make Every Tree Count event in the month of April, using the GLOBE Observer app 

NASA's top priority in this difficult time, is to do everything it can to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. For that reason, the agency is postponing the GLOBE Observer Trees Challenge 2020: Make Every Tree Count activity as part of GLOBE’s 25th anniversary celebration. Please keep checking back on GLOBE social for the latest concerning activities you can do with GLOBE, and also when the Trees Challenge might get reinstated.
