The GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) is excited to announce that the registration for the 2018 GLOBE Learning Expedition (GLE) and the 22nd Annual Meeting in Killarney, Ireland, is now open! The meeting will be hosted by GIO, along with the Europe and Eurasia Regional Office.
The GLE is a student event and we encourage students from around the world to participate. Due to limited space at the venue, and considerable interest in this event, we have had to put some restrictions on registrations:
- A maximum of six participants per school (1-2 teachers and 4-5 students for a total of six) and only students (minimum age 10) who are presenting GLOBE research may register.
- While we welcome family members to accompany GLOBE participants to Ireland and to stay in the hotel, please understand that our space is extremely limited; therefore, they will not be permitted to register, join GLE participants at mealtimes, or participate in GLE activities
- Spaces for Country Coordinators, U.S. Partners, and NASA SciAct awardees are also limited. Please do not assume that if you are a member of one of these groups there will be a place held for you.
Register early to guarantee your space! A waiting list will be maintained for late registrants and we will release places that may result from cancellations.
To learn more about the registration process, costs, and accommodations, please visit the GLE information page. We look forward to seeing you in Ireland! Keep up with the events on social using #IrelandGLE2018.
