The GRE is excited to be participating in Earthcast09 this coming Tuesday, April 21st from 7:00 pm -10 pm pacific time. Earthcast09 is a live, 24 hour conversation about all things relating to the environment (view our promo/teaser video). With participation from 4 different continents in several languages (Spanish, English, Portuguese, Chinese, German) this truly is a global project that centers around something that every individual on the planet has a stake in.
