ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

Feedback form is now closed.
Participants learn about The GLOBE Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE), its alignment with the SDGs and possible strategies that help in their implementation. They will also be aware of GLOBE members supporting the attainment of SDGs using GLOBE.
Since its official launch on Earth Day 1995, The GLOBE Program has provided students and the public with the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment. As an international science and education program, GLOBE is dedicated to supplying the future STEM professionals with the scientific knowledge necessary to tackle Earth's biggest challenges. Over 120 countries participate and have contributed almost 237 million environmental science measurements. It has several resources aligned with the SDGs, and many GLOBE members implement the program with this alignment in mind.
The panelists will present the story of GLOBE in their countries, its implementation and how the program is helping to meet the country’s SDGs. The panelists, one each from the six GLOBE regions (Africa, Asia & Pacific, Europe & Eurasia, Latin America & Caribbean, Near East & North Africa, and North America) will cite specific case studies to illustrate this work and any visible results.

The presentation will take a panel format with one representative from each of GLOBE’s six regions, as well as the GLOBE Implementation Office Director of Community Engagement and Program Strategy.
The panel will be co-moderated by Larisa K. Schelkin (UNITAR Global Diplomacy Fellow, GLOBE US Partner, GLOBE International Science Network, GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium judge, and a teaching faculty at the UN General Assembly President’s Fellowship Program HOPE) and Distinguished Science Education Professor Michael Jabot (SUNY Fredonia, GLOBE International Virtual Science Symposium judge, and a teaching faculty at UNITAR Global Diplomacy Fellowship Diplomacy Fellowship Program).
Panelists will have approximately 20 minutes to give their presentation. During the allotted time, they will tell the story of the implementation of the program in their country. Following this summary, they will outline the GLOBE protocols and learning activities that aligned with the SDGs that they are implementing.
The format will be a mixture of powerpoint slides, video clips, images, data analysis (tables and figures), and other media that help to illustrate the use of the program infrastructure and the diverse resources and materials available.
