Live Earth Houston 2010
On 18 April, GLOBE students all over the world ran for the worthy cause of water conservation and quality. As part of the GLOBE Program's partnership with Live Earth, students from 10 countries ran 6 kilometers, representative of the average distance many women and children must walk each day in order to secure clean water for their families. GLOBE students in multiple countries also contributed to the clean-up of local watersheds, which corresponded with other beautification events held in honor of Earth Day on 22 April.
