Did you know that The GLOBE Program and Peace Corps share a common commitment to the environment, education, youth development and empowerment, capacity building, and cultural understanding? Since 1995, GLOBE and Peace Corps have informally collaborated on activities in countries in Africa, Asia and Pacific, Europe and Eurasia, Latin America and Caribbean, and the Near East.

In 2016, NASA and Peace Corps signed a Letter of Intent to strengthen collaboration between GLOBE and the Peace Corps. The GLOBE/Peace Corps Alignment Document outlines some of the ways Peace Corps can, and is, using GLOBE – as well as how GLOBE science protocols align to the Peace Corps.
