Students and teachers from 7 countries across Europe will participate in the GLOBE Student Conference that will take place on 25 - 26 May 2023 on the premises of the Faculty of Science of Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic (see map).
This event provides a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with other GLOBE teams, gain new experience and knowledge, as well as initiate inter-school collaborations.
We are glad that 12 school teams from Georgia, Ireland, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Slovakia and the Czech Republic will participate in the conference along with Czech students and teachers.

Students will present their research during the Student Conference. Each team prepares a presentation about their research project, including their research question, hypothesis, research plan, experiment and results.
This year we encourage school teams to connect their research to climate change. In their presentation students will try to answer the following questions:
- How is our project related to climate change?
- Does our project address the causes or effects of climate change at the local level (drought, greenery in the city, transport to school...)? If so, how?
Students will receive feedback from scientists after presenting your project.
- 50 EUR/person (including charge for Thursday lunch and snacks)
- All teams will arrange travel and accommodation in Prague independently.
- Meals: Participants will arrange breakfasts and dinners independently as well as lunch after Friday field day. We will arrange Thursday lunch and snacks.
