The International Citizen Science Conference is aimed at scientists, practitioners, activists, funders, policy makers in the field of citizen science, non-governmental organizations, artists, and interested citizens. ECSA organizes this event together with DITOs. The last international conference hosted 368 participants from 30 countries. And because this first ECSA conference was a success, the ECSA steering committee decided to hold this conference biannually in different member countries.
The Second ECSA Conference is going to take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 3 to 5 June 2018.
The following questions are going to be discussed at the conference: What role can citizen science play: For grass root organizations? For empowering individual citizens? For increasing scientific literacy?
What are the reasons for the public to do citizen science? What is the role of schools? What are the impacts on social innovation?
More information is coming soon!
