Preparation of a Erasmus-(Comenius)-GLOBE Project CLIMP. The participating countries want to investigate the situation of schools and families and their attitudes towards the changes in politics and climate in the area of the former Iron Curtain. The project was accepted, but not financed by the Erasmus Agency. So we will start the project again this year in a similar way. We want to open the topic for more countries: basic idea is the question: frontiers in politics, in nature and in mind.

GLOBE–Deutschland celebrates the GLOBE-Anniversary in two different ways:
a) We collected interesting events of the 22nd of April. Institut FLAD in Stuttgart offers the acitivities of Earthday on a wonderful website: www.earthday.de
b) Some schools took part in balloon-competition. We will know the winners at the end of the year.
c) The Weather Club of Gymnasium Schloß Neuhaus in Paderborn has the 20th anniversary too. That is the reason why the Gymnasium celebrated a public opening of the new climate garden financed by the city and some sponsors, based on the GLOBE protocols and GLOBE analysis.

GLOBE-Deutschland offers a national competition 2015 with some interesting prices for the Honour of GLOBE. We collect presentations and videos about the GLOBE activities 2015 till the end of the year from schools in Germany.
