The International Year of Planet Earth 2008-09

The International Year of Planet Earth 2008-09 provides an unparalleled opportunity to publicize and celebrate the contributions made by the Earth Sciences and Earth scientists to our society on a global scale. In conjunction with the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences, IUGS, UNESCO, and more than 70 countries worldwide, Canada is a major participant in the International Year of Planet Earth. Projects developed by the Canadian National Committee for IYPE speak to Canadians regarding the major roles that the Earth Sciences have played and will play in the past and future development of our nation.

In celebration of the International Year of Planet Earth, the first annual WHERE Challenge ( http://www.earthsciencescanada.com/where/) is asking Canadian kids aged 10 - 14 years to discover the answers to these questions: What on Earth is in your stuff and WHERE on Earth does it come from? The WHERE Challenge is inviting young people and schools from across the country to compete for thousands of dollars in regional and national cash prizes by letting their imaginations run wild! Enter as a group or individual.

Please visit the Canadian IYPE website to learn more about what else is happening in Canada. http://www.earthsciencescanada.com/iype/
