GLOBE Observer Connection, Conversation, Celebration (GO C3)
We are planning a party, and you are invited!
GLOBE Observer Connection, Conversation, Celebration (GO C3) will be the first virtual gathering of volunteers who participate in The GLOBE Program through the GLOBE Observer app. Anyone may register to attend this free online event. The event will take place on 26 July 2022 from 7-9 p.m. ET (11-1 UTC). Learn more and register.
What to Expect
GO C3 will feature presentations from volunteers from all around the world, updates from the GLOBE Observer team, and interactive conversations with scientists and other volunteers. GO C3 is part of The GLOBE Program’s Annual Meeting, but registration in the GLOBE Annual Meeting is not required to attend GO C3.
If you are interested in presenting at GO C3 (ages 13 and up only), apply by 19 June 2022 by creating a short video (up to 4 minutes long) telling us how GLOBE influences your life. Tell a story using one or two of these questions as a prompt:
- What have you learned or gained by volunteering with GLOBE?
- What protocols do you use and how? Why did you choose that protocol? Is it related to an environmental issue in your community that concerns you?
- How has GLOBE affected your decisions or how you interact with your environment?
- What impact have you made on others since getting involved (influenced other people to join GLOBE, gotten involved in community service, made some other local impact)?
- Do you have ideas or tips you’d like to share with other people volunteering with GLOBE?
- What does participating in GLOBE mean to you?
We are interested in hearing from people of all experience levels, whether you joined GLOBE today or have been contributing for many years. In the video, please do not include any music (copyright issues) and please only use your own images in the video. Also use caution about saying or displaying any personally identifiable information (such as your last name or your address) in your video.
To submit, please upload your video to YouTube, then fill out the application form and include the YouTube link to your video. We will use the videos to select presenters and may share the videos as part of the event.
We look forward to meeting the community of volunteers who give so much to GLOBE and celebrating your contributions!
