Pace University, NYC Campus


Public participation in scientific research – often referred to as “citizen science” – has grown in popularity among environmental organizations as a way of educating and engaging diverse audiences. The field has also grown exponentially among academics, and there is a wealth of published research about the effectiveness of citizen science programs for increased scientific literacy and environmental stewardship, among other outcomes.

This workshop will discuss recent research and help environmental managers to think about how they might develop new citizen science programs, or improve on existing programs.
