Globe Learning Expedition
Over 400 national and international students, teachers and scientists from 41 countries gathered in Killarney for a week of citizen science and cultural exchange. The event opened at Killarney House on Sunday with a parade of nations as the delegation pushed a giant globe through the streets of Killarney and waved their national flags. This was the sixth international environmental gathering, which takes place every four years, and the first to take place in Europe. The event included research presentations and training as well as field research in Killarney National Park.
