The GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) programme is a NASA supported international science and education programme that offers students the chance to participate in data collection and the scientific process and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment (www.globe.gov). GLOBE was relaunched in Ireland in September 2017 by the EEU Unit of An Taisce with support from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In Ireland, the GLOBE team supports schools participating with GLOBE protocols and GLOBE campaigns, and we coordinate a national Air Quality campaign based on measuring traffic-related pollution (nitrogen dioxide) around schools.
