2023 Water Bodies Challenge

GLOBE Europe and Eurasia invites all students to celebrate water we can see around us. Observe lake, river, stream, spring, seashore or any other water body and tell us about significance of the water area for the environment and for the community as well. And have fun!


Dates: March 20 - May 20


How to participate

  1. Register for the Challenge

How you can do that? Select from the Water Bodies Checklist the activities you want to do in the 2 months of the challenge. Then, post your activities on Padlet. Both the Checklist and access to Padlet you receive once you register for the Challenge.
