Annual Meetings

GLOBE Annual Meetings are a chance for GLOBE community members at all levels of the program to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments, talk about new developments and brainstorm how to continue improving The GLOBE Program.

Attendees have the opportunity to learn from GLOBE Country Coordinators, U.S. Partners, Regional Coordinators, educators, students and scientists, as well as ask questions and share ideas with GLOBE's federal sponsors, the GLOBE Implementation Office and other GLOBE staff. Researchers, including many in the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN), have various platforms at meetings to discuss their remarkable careers and how they support GLOBE’s mission.

Find out more about what GLOBE members do at Annual Meetings, and how 2023 attendees celebrated GLOBE's first in-person meeting in four years.
