Event information

Tuesday, February 14, 2023 @ 2:00pm ET (7:00pm UTC, 8:00pm CET). The State of Trees - February 2023: Local Comparisons of Change Over Time for Land Cover and Tree Height and a Call to Students! 

This was the 54th webinar for the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign. The webinar focused on country comparisons of land cover and tree heights using online data mapping tools that the campaign has highlighted often and a discussion thinking about the growth rate of trees over time with the context of "Does your city/town have a tree plan?" Following this, the webinar put out a call to all our campaign students (and teachers) to interview elders in their local community about the local changes witnessed in land cover and tree height over the last 10, 20, 50 years. There were participants from 12 countries (Argentina, Benin, Brazil, Colombia, Croatia, Ghana, India, Israel, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland, and the United States, including Puerto Rico).
