The HEROES (Himalayan Environmental Rhythm Observation and Evaluation System)- GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to benefit the Environment) workshop was conducted from 10th till 14th January, 2022 at the UWICER headquarters in Lamai Goempa, Bumthang. The 5-day workshop was attended by 12 focal teachers from across the country and a few UWICER staff.
One of the main objectives of the workshop was to train the HEROES focal teachers for GLOBE implementation in Bhutan. The morning sessions were mostly taken up by GLOBE whereby the participants were trained on the four themes/spheres such as biosphere, atmosphere, pedosphere and hydrosphere. These sessions were facilitated by resource persons from GLOBE Implementation Office and other GLOBE members from Thailand and India. The afternoon sessions were taken up doing HEROES activities which included training on the new HEROES website, collecting observation data and carrying out data analysis on both phenology and climate data.
The workshop was organized by UWICER with funding support from Karuna Foundation through Bhutan Foundation.
