    Written by Anne Marie de Grosbois

    Editor-in-Chief: Jasmina Sopova

    The 2008 issue number 3 of the online magazine, The

    UNESCO Courier, is devoted to the International Year of

    Planet Earth (IYPE). Keeping in mind that the Nobel Peace

    Prize was attributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on

    Climate Change IPCC in 2007, this issue features inter-

    views with the Chair the IPCC, Rajendra Pachauri, and

    IPCC member, Italian climatologist, Filippo Giorgi. As

    well, excerpts are published from the essay of the Irish

    student Nikita White (1 of the 6 laureates of the student

    contest that was organized by IYPE) that describes an

    insightful conversation with her 8-year-old brother about

    Planet Earth. Other feature articles focus on a new GeoPark

    in the United Kingdom and on the Global Footprint Net-

    work, a non-profit organization that promotes ecological,

    social and economic sustainability, and compiles national

    footprint accounts that measure over time the ecological

    resource use and resource capacity of nations.

    The UNESCO Courier is available on-line and pub-

    lished monthly (ISSN 19938616). It may be read in the six

    languagesEnglish, French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian and

    Chinese. Each issue consists of a thematic dossier that

    deals with one of UNESCOs concerns. More articles

    dealing with IYPE themes can be read in issue 3 and

    may be accessed online at http://www.unesco.org/library/


    Environmental Geology reports on the many special geosciencepublications that mark the International Year of Planet Earth(IYPE). Forming an integral part of IYPEs work, these specialpublications reach out to a wide range of readers outside of thegeosciences as well as enhance science communicationbetween geoscientists and their peers. We invite authors/editorsto continue publicizing in 2009 their special publications (in alllanguages) that focus on themes of the International Year.
