Global Connection

Our new Technician has employee orientation today here at the City. This is a day of tours, policies and personality testing. It is extremely helpful to new employees and can be a fun experience. This may be something to consider at your organization.

Global Connection is a joint project of Google, National Geographic, NASA, and Carnegie Mellon University. The project's long-term goal is to help people learn about and meet our neighbors across this globe, and learn about our planet itself. When astronauts go into space, they develop a new appreciation for the oneness of the Earth. Global Connection is working with the earth-imaging browser Google Earth and populating it with pictures and stories of real people and places to create connectivity. Their motto is "This world is our home, and all people are our family". The project is supported through the generosity of Google and the National Geographic Society.
