The NASA GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN) is a global community of professionals with diverse backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and related fields. GISN members actively collaborate to promote Earth science education worldwide and drive progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the principles of open science. This session will highlight the significant contributions of the GISN to science education, sustainable development, and the dissemination of knowledge for global prosperity.
The United Nations General Assembly Science Summit provides an exceptional platform to acknowledge and showcase the GISN's achievements, strategies, and future prospects. By fostering international collaboration and leveraging the expertise of its members, the GISN effectively engages with educators, students, and policymakers to address pressing global challenges.
The primary objective of this session is to underscore the importance of Earth science education in achieving the UN SDGs. The GISN aims to enhance scientific literacy and empower future generations with the knowledge and skills to become active contributors to sustainable development. Through its network of professionals, the GISN develops and disseminates innovative educational resources, facilitates capacity-building workshops, and supports the implementation of inquiry-based learning methodologies. By cultivating a sense of global citizenship, the GISN fosters environmental stewardship and inspires transformative action.
Furthermore, the GISN is committed to advancing open science principles. Through the sharing of data, methodologies, and best practices, GISN members promote transparency, collaboration, and reproducibility in scientific research. By leveraging technological advancements, such as open-source tools and platforms, the GISN contributes to the democratization of scientific knowledge, bridging gaps between scientists, policymakers, and the public. This fosters evidence-based decision-making, enhances policy formulation, and facilitates the monitoring of progress towards the SDGs.
The session advocates for the recognition of the GISN's vital role in advancing Earth science education and contributing to the achievement of the UN SDGs through open science. By prioritizing global collaboration, knowledge exchange, and open access to scientific information, the GISN stands as a catalyst for positive change. The United Nations General Assembly Science Summit provides a unique opportunity to amplify the impact of the GISN's initiatives and reinforce the importance of scientific education and open science in driving sustainable development worldwide.
