On October 14-15, 2020, the conference ‘Knowledge for Change: A decade of Citizen Science (2020-2030) in support of the SDGs‘ is organised in Berlin aiming to present, evaluate and discuss the exciting contributions that citizen science makes in framing and achieving sustainable development, specifically the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The conference will bring together expertise from policy makers, institutional and citizen scientists, economists, NGOs and civil society to implement mechanisms and processes for the transition towards a more sustainable future.
WeObserve organises and invites participants to submit their contributions for ‘Citizen observatories: the landscape, tools and data innovations for sustainable development‘ session.
The session seeks speakers and exhibitors who are interested in sharing their experiences, lessons, knowledge and expertise from successful citizen science projects about relevant tools, data and innovations that support sustainable development. The goal of this interactive session is to provide an overview of the current landscape of Citizen Observatories and relevant initiatives and present innovations from them, such as new methodologies and conceptual models, as well as data innovations from hackathons, innovation and open data challenges.
Contributions should be submitted as abstracts which should be no longer than 350 words and include the title of the session. The submissions will be open up to July 20, 2020, 23.59h CET.
