Please visit the 2008 GLE Web page to learn more about the GLE in South Africa, 22-28 June 2008. All GLOBE students are invited to attend the GLE and to make a presentation. There is still plenty of time for students to fundraise in their communities to obtain the support they may need. The 2008 GLE in South Africa promises to be an exciting opportunity to meet with students from all around the world who are committed to learning all they can to understand, sustain and improve Earth's environment. Please join us in South Africa in June 2008!
