GLOBE Implementation Office supports letter of intent with Peace Corps

UCAR plays important role in strengthening collaborations

February 7, 2017 | UCP's GLOBE Implementation Office has provided important support for a letter of intent between NASA and the Peace Corps. The goal of the letter of intent is to make GLOBE resources accessible to Peace Corps volunteers, connect GLOBE Country Coordinators with Peace Corps staff, and highlight projects that leverage GLOBE.

Lyn Wigbels (GLOBE International Coordinator), Kristin Wegner (GLOBE Project Manager and former Peace Corps volunteer), and Irene Farrow (GLOBE Peace Corps Response volunteer) met with NASA and Peace Corps staff to discuss how GLOBE and the Peace Corps could work more closely together. Wigbels helped initiate the collaboration and letter of intent.

For more details, see the GLOBE Program announcement.
