The GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) provides support to the GLOBE community worldwide. It works with scientists, teachers and an extensive network of stakeholders to improve participation in The GLOBE Program. 

Based in Boulder, Colorado in the United States, the GIO is sponsored through a NASA cooperative agreement award to the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research. Together with GLOBE's Working Groups, GIO works to support community initiatives in science, education, evaluation, technology, diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as the development of new science and education content.
