28 September 2022 - Snippets and Activities - U.S. Coordination Office

"No matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helped you."- Althea Gibson

​​​​The North American Regional Meeting (NARM) scheduled for 2-4 November 2022, is top on the U.S. Coordination Office minds, and all the planning that goes into this kind of virtual event! This year, we are also trying something new and there will be 4 professional learning sessions (open to Partners and teachers) on 7-8 November, scattered across the country. See last week's blog for the flier link but also, stay tuned to this space and find out when registration is open!

  • Speaking of NARM, GLOBE Exchange is an opportunity to create a 2-minute video to introduce your GLOBE Partnership and you don’t have to attend NARM to participate! Each GLOBE Partnership is invited to contribute a two-minute pre-recorded video using the PowerPoint template. Your video will serve to broaden our understanding of your Partnership, demonstrate what you’ve accomplished this past year, explain how you’d like to collaborate moving forward, and provide a place for you to share resources with the community. Individual videos will be collected and assembled into a montage that will be posted to the GLOBE YouTube channel, shared with the U.S. GLOBE community, and will be the focus of a virtual NARM session. ​​​​​​​
