Title Transformative potential of citizen science and citizen observatories for mobilizing action towards achieving the SDGs
Description Presentations from a WeObserve session organised in the context of of the conference ‘Knowledge for Change: A decade of Citizen Science (2020-2030) in support of the SDGs‘.  This session focused on addressing the transformative potential of CS and COs towards the SDG agenda. It aimed to position CS and CO as integral policy measures and support measures for disaster management and emergency response and not ‘just’ as instruments for monitoring policy attainment.
