Webinars - European Phenology Campaign
Webinars became an important part of the campaign. For Autumn 2021 we have planned a series of webinars focused on an autumn tree change, cooperation with scientists, and student and teacher experience sharing. We also invite you to the webinars organised by the Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign team.
Our autumn with trees, December 1st @3 pm CET
Meet other teachers and students participating in the Autumn tree campaign and inspire each other with your projects and activities.

Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign Webinars
Tuesday, December 7, 2021 @ 1:00pm EST (6:00pm UTC). Looking at the Land Cover and Tree Canopy of the GLOBE Africa Region and the critical need for GLOBE data observations in the Africa Region. Region Focus: Africa. This campaign webinar will begin our two-month focus on the GLOBE Africa Region. Beginning with a recorded discussion with GLOBE Africa Regional Coordinator, Mr. Mark Brettenny, we will focus on the importance of taking land cover and tree height observations across Africa, with a focus on data literacy. We will then take a close look at the Global Land Cover Viewer and the Global Forest Canopy Height online tool to focus on how to look at current and past land cover and tree height data in the Africa Region. Following the use of these online tools, we will highlight some useful content from the NASA Eyes on Earth online tool and will have a discussion on the importance of taking multiple observations of land cover and tree height.
Please send an email to Campaign Lead, Brian Campbell, if you have interest in joining the webinar.
