GLOBE Information Sheets

Presenting about GLOBE at a conference? Want to share information about GLOBE? Here is a collection of our GLOBE Information Sheets.


Learn about GLOBE's vision, mission and history, as well as how members make global connections through the program.

Become a GLOBE Educator

Through The GLOBE Program, educators can connect students to an international network of students, educators and scientists while learning more about our shared environment. For a school to fully participate in The GLOBE Program, at least one educator must be trained in GLOBE science measurement protocols and education activities.

Become a Volunteer with GLOBE Observer

The GLOBE Program welcomes individual volunteers of all ages to participate in GLOBE by collecting environmental data in support of Earth System Science through the GLOBE Observer app.

Become a Member of the GISN

The GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN) is an international network of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) professionals who contribute meaningfully to GLOBE students around the world involved in scientific field investigations and research projects. 

GLOBE eTraining 

GLOBE eTraining provides the opportunity for new and existing GLOBE users, primarily educators, to complete science protocol training at any time, anywhere. GLOBE eTraining consists of multiple web-based, interactive and downloadable training modules, online assessments for each module, and access to support from GLOBE staff.

GLOBE Campaigns and Intensive Observation Periods (IOPs)

GLOBE Campaigns and IOPs are regional and worldwide projects that provide students with hands-on opportunities to learn about the Earth. These initiatives are grounded in real science embedded in an inquiry-based, collaborative approach. 

Connect your GLOBE Data with NASA Satellite Missions

Researchers use GLOBE collected data, alongside remotely sensed satellite data, to validate and calibrate satellite instruments. NASA satellite missions like the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, Ice Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat2) Mission, and the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission collect worldwide environmental data that aligns with data collected through GLOBE protocols.

US GLOBE Regions Map

The United States is divided into six GLOBE regions. Each region has one representative on the U.S. Partner Forum, who works closely to guide the future of GLOBE in the United States.

Become a GLOBE Partner  

GLOBE Partners (Country Coordinators and U.S. Partners) facilitate the implementation of GLOBE in their country or within a service area of their country. Partners recruit schools, as well as provide training opportunities and mentoring activities for educators to promote the teaching and learning of science, enhance environmental literacy and stewardship, and promote scientific discovery.

GLOBE and Peace Corps

The GLOBE Program can help to achieve the Peace Corps vision of “building host communities capacity and availability of social resources to help maintain healthy livelihoods.”


The USAID has program sectors that align with GLOBE’s programmatic activities and science protocols. Some of the ways USAID can and is using GLOBE are listed in this document.

The GLOBE Program has amassed a rich set of global environmental data that are freely available to all members of the public. There are several ways educators, students, researchers, and citizen scientists can retrieve GLOBE data from the GLOBE website.

Broader Impacts Through GLOBE Science

GLOBE Science provides opportunities for researchers to engage with the community through the use of GLOBE data, interactions with GLOBE students and educators via the GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN), and the participation in campaigns that focus on environmental phenomena.

Approach Potential Funders for your GLOBE Activities

The Evaluation Working Group would like to share with you a document for you to use when approaching potential funders. This document presents the benefits that your students gain from participating in the GLOBE program and provides this more formal presentation to give to potential funding agencies. Many different funding agencies exist and we have attempted to provide the brief essence of the importance and value of GLOBE that you can modify to meet your needs.

This document is available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Arabic.
