Global Child is the next generation travel show that inspires while exploring extraordinary destinations with the help of top tourism boards, brands and luxury hotels. Episodes feature nature, culture, luxury and adventure segments tied together through wonderful experiences that inspire and entertain international audiences. Augusto Valverde shares each unique journey with different co-hosts as they discover the positive life lesson each place unveils.
The name Global Child exists because our multicultural host Augusto Valverde was born in Miami, grew up in Mexico, lived in Paris, Canada, Los Angeles and has Spanish and Irish roots! People used to ask him where he was from and one day he realized that we are all truly part of a global community and that what he have in common is much more than what sets us apart.
At Global Child we believe that inspiration, discovery & joy are timeless qualities that a world explorer and the unique characters we feature during our episodes should always embody! In this interconnected global world we all need childlike wonder to truly experience life! Global Child embodies the best luxury experiences, the most wonderful adventures and also giving back to others because the best way to travel, is traveling with purpose.
