Earth Day 2018
Earth Day is a special day for The GLOBE Program because GLOBE began operations on that day in 1995. This year, on 22 April, we celebrate not only Earth Day but also the 23rd anniversary of The GLOBE Program.
All over the world, Earth Day is marked by leaders, citizens, organizations, and agencies coming together to celebrate planet Earth. Earth Day is now a global event, in which more than 1 billion people in 192 countries take part in numerous activities. Earth Day is a global outpouring of energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to create a new environmental paradigm or model for how to protect our world. It is a wonderful day that represents unparalleled global collaboration.
By celebrating your involvement with The GLOBE Program on Earth Day, you'll understand the heart of this program, which is to encourage the next generation of scientists and stewards of the Earth. Some of you may become scientists, but all of you can become stewards who care for, and protect, our planet.
As part of GLOBE’s celebration, GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) Director, Dr. Tony Murphy has a special Earth Day message for all of our community members. This very special message also contains videos from GLOBE students around the world – for the honor of representing their regions as Keynote Speakers at the GLOBE Learning Expedition in Killarney, Ireland in July.
The GIO appreciates the efforts of all of the students who submitted videos and we look forward to seeing many of you in Ireland this summer. The students whose names are mentioned by Dr. Murphy in the video, below, will be our Keynote Speakers in Ireland. Congratulations!
