Workshop: Building capacity for Citizen Science at SLU

internal events | seminars, workshops |

This upcoming workshop will be an opportunity to meet, learn, discuss and form small working groups to further developing specific skills needed for todays’ citizen science. Save the date and come along (in person or through Zoom) for a day-long immersive experience.

For whom: all at SLU with an interest in citizen science

More and more citizen science is conducted at SLU, enabling researchers to learn together with others in society about the environment or other aspects, and to develop different ways of thinking and doing. Citizen science activity is rapidly expanding across large parts of the world, and with it the arsenal of on- and off-line methods and knowledge about what works and what doesn’t.

But how well are we set up to innovate and expand citizen science activities at SLU? Do we know what is happening elsewhere and are we learning from this? Have we got good ways to support each other in both imagining and realizing new, exciting initiatives?

A programme is currently being developed by a small team of researchers in interaction with their respective constituencies. Do not hesitate to contact any of us if you want to feed in specific ideas; and we really hope that everyone working, or wanting to work with, citizen science, will be at the workshop – we need you!

Time: 2020-10-16 10:00 - 15:00
