GLOBE Regional Learning Expedition 2015
3.-6. August 2015
To celebrate the GLOBE program’s 20th anniversary, GLOBE Estonia will be hosting an international summer expedition.
We would like to welcome participants from our region (Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Russia, Finland, Estonia) to take part in the GLOBE Regional Learning Expedition 2015, which will be held on 3.-6.August 2015 in Nelijärve, Estonia.
The main focus of the expedition is learning about the environment in a more hands-on fashion and about the possible environmental issues present in North-East Estonia. The focal points of this year’s meet-up will be satellite and soil research.
Over the course of 4 days the participants will:
- introduce GLOBE activities taking place in their countries,
- learn how to fill and collect data for GLOBE protocols,
- go on an expedition and do fieldwork into the surrounding nature,
- and present the results of their fieldwork.
They will engage in thrilling teamwork and group activities (such as approaching an environment-related topic through acting, GLOBE games and socializing activities), get a chance to learn from professionals working in the fields of satellite and soil science, as well as taking environmental measurements during the fieldwork. Experts from Estonia and abroad will guide the participants on their 4-day journey and explain the significance of GLOBE data collection
The aim of the GLOBE Regional Learning Expedition 2015 is regional networking – for students to get a chance to make new connections and practice foreign languages. May it be noted here that the official communication language of the GLOBE Regional Learning Expedition is English, however support will be available also in Russian.
Latest info is included in the circulars (on the right side of the page), as well as contact information of our GLOBE organizers.
