During a televised event at NASA Headquarters, students from Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Himalayas discussed their use of satellite data and mapping technologies to address climate change issues in their regions.

The students are part of a global fellowship program sponsored by NASA, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Association of American Geographers. The My Community, Our Earth/SERVIR program supports long-term training of young, emerging scholars in the use of Earth observations, geography, and geospatial technologies to address climate change issues in developing regions.

SERVIR, an acronym meaning "to serve" in Spanish, is a joint venture between NASA and USAID.
