An In-person Event

The 2023 GLOBE Annual Meeting will be the first in-person annual meeting since 2019, with representatives of the GLOBE community from around the world coming together in Colorado, USA.

The proposed theme for this year's meeting is "GLOBE Science Opens Global Benefits." Meeting participants will explore several strands of "Open Science", including:

  • In and Beyond Classrooms: How educators and students use GLOBE data in classrooms, and how that data can lead to change outside of schools.
  • Mobilizing Beyond Borders: A focus on the diversity of the GLOBE community, exploring how such diversity benefits both the research and GLOBE members.
  • Mapping Beyond Dots: Discover how researchers can tell a story through their data and visualizations.
  • Benefits for the Environment and Society: Examine how connections built among members and groups outside of GLOBE can change both the research and the researchers themselves.

Note: Information about the "Call for Presentations by GLOBE Community Members" will be posted here by mid-April.

Call for Session Presentations

The call for session presentations is now closed, however, you can still review the guidelines for submitted proposals on the Community Sessions Presentations page.
