 GLOBE presents many opportunities to enhance student learning about scientific methods in a natural, environmentally friendly manner that challenges them while doing fun things in their surroundings. The program has evolved since 1994 into a worldwide science and education program that provides a rhobust student and teacher friendly system for communicating and learning. Please examine the GLOBE web site for further information about this wonderful learning program.

This video link captures the essence of the GLOBE experience. Most recently, during our 20th GLOBE Annual Meeting in Estes Park, Colorado, in July, GLOBE students visited Rocky Mountain National Park to take part in a Student Research Experience:

UNESCO

In 1945, UNESCO was created in order to respond to the firm belief of nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation, that political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace. Peace must be established on the basis of humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity.

Slovenian Man and Biosphere Program MAB

MAB is UNESCO's intergovernmental research programme that provides opportunities for nature conservation and sustainable development.  The purpose of the MAB Programme is to study the impact of human activities on the changes in the living environment and promote sustainable development.

Launched in 1971, UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB) is an Intergovernmental Scientific Programme that aims to establish a scientific basis for the improvement of relationships between people and their environments.  Julien Alps selected as MAB site.  It is an area of alpine mountains and karst plateaux, with an alpine climate characterised by cold winters and short summers, although the valleys opening towards the Mediterranean region to the south have milder climatic conditions. Biosphere Reserves in Slovenia are coordinated thru Triglav National Park.

The Karst

The Karst Biosphere Reserve encompasses the kocjaske jame Regional Park including the kocjan caves, designated both as a World Heritage site and a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance.

Kozjansko & Obsotelje

Kozjansko and Obsotelje Biosphere Reserve is marked by a closed chain of pre-Alpine hills, unconnected areas of tertiary lower hills and a chain of lowland fields.

Natura 2000

In April 2004, Slovenia designated the Natura 2000 sites and undertook to suitably protect them. The network was enlarged in 2013. It defined 31 sites for bird conservation and 323 sites for the conservation of habitat types and species. Thus there are 354 Natura 2000 sites in total, encompassing 7683 km2 (7.677km2 terrestial, 6 km2 marine), which makes approximately 37 percent of the country.
