Deadline Extended for the SPRING 2023 Collaboratory!

The Spring 2023 theme is "Plastics: Retelling the Story of Waste," will feature 3 Global Seminars given by experts in the field and additional global learning content.

The heart of the Collaboratory are the students who come from universities around the world to learn about plastic pollution and what is being done to address it, within the framework of the U.N. Sustainable Goals. Students break into smaller groups and collaborate to create ArcGIS StoryMaps for a partner NGO that is reusing/recycling plastic waste.
