Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE)
Initiative for the Programme first announced on Earth Day, 22 Apr 1994, (USA) by former Vice President Al Gore. Scientists and educators from around the world spent one year creating the foundational structure for the Programme, and formally began studen-teacher-scientist activities on Earth Day 1995. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was designated as lead agency. Along with NOAA, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Science Foundation (NSF), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and US Department of Education provided funding, and Department of State, although not a funding agency, was involved in development and implementation of the international aspects of the programme.
