Webinars became an important part of the campaign. For autumn 2020 we have planned for you a series of webinars focused on autumn tree change and the use of GLOBE data tools and apps. The webinars also provided opportunities for sharing experience and meeting scientists. The webinars were prepared in cooperation with scientists from the Trees Around the GLOBE campaign team. 


More webinars will be planned for 2021 Spring Campaign. 



Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign webinars. 

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 @ 2:00pm EST (7:00pm UTC). Getting Started with your Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Projects: An open forum webinar with students, educators, and the Trees Campaign core team. We will focus on how to take that science and create student research projects. We will hear from several students across the GLOBE Program about how they have begun their research projects related to trees and we will focus on some specific research questions that students can undertake for their projects. We invite all teachers and their students to attend this webinar so that we can have informal discussions on how students can begin their student research projects.

Do your students want to do student research, but aren't sure where to begin? Do you have questions you would like answered about student research related to trees? Please submit your questions to Dorian Janney, prior to the webinar, and we will try our best to have an answer for you during the webinar.
