The 2024 Symposium's theme is "Climate Investigations: Understanding Earth as a System," which encourages students from GLOBE's 127 member countries to do their own climate research. The event is a part of GLOBE’s Year of Climate and Carbon Campaign.

Projects will be eligible for the new "I am a problem solver" badge for GLOBE students who propose solutions to difficult problems. Students who produce outstanding work may get the opportunity to present their work at the 2024 GLOBE Annual Meeting in the USA, where the theme will be "Climate and Resilience."
