How can citizen science be incorporated in education?

Published: 23 November 2021

Welcome to an internal SLU workshop on the 9th of December where we present examples and discuss the possibilities to incorporate citizen science in education.

The workshop is held digitally and the target groups of the workshop are teachers, researchers and environmental analysts at SLU.

The purpose of the workshop is to

  • spread knowledge about citizen science and its potential for incorporation in education,
  • provide examples and practical advice concerning incorporating citizen science in education,
  • strengthen the network and connections between SLU teachers, researchers and environmental analysts, in order to stimulate and promote ways in which citizen science projects can be made more accessible to teachers and students.

Last signup date the 8th of December. Most welcome!

Take part in our survey

We have developed a survey to examine the interest in and use of citizen science at SLU. Even if you are not attending the workshop, we would appreciate a lot if you want to take part in the survey. It takes 2-3 minutes.
