GLOBE Presents a New Documentary Series: Agents of Change – Videos Now Available

We, at the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO), believe that large global stories, such as the all-encompassing story of The GLOBE Program, can often be told best by narrowing the lens to focus on an individual or individuals who exemplify the best efforts of our community. These are the people whose dedication and good work make an impact on a community; “multipliers” who spread the work of GLOBE and encourage others to have an impact. 

With funding from our program sponsor, NASA; story guidance and series coordination from the GIO; logistical support from GLOBE community members; our talented crew; and the delightful participation of the “stars” of these films, we bring you:

Agents of Change

Note. GIO has completed three videos that represent the impact of GLOBE in the Africa, Latin America and Caribbean, and North America regions… for starters. We are planning to complete this visual portrait of the impact of GLOBE in GLOBE’s three remaining regions: Asia and Pacific, Europe and Eurasia, and Near East and North Africa.
