NEWSERA Project Manager Joana Magalhães will conduct the third workshops in the series, on Tuesday 14 December, 2021.

These workshops are aimed at people who are involved or interested in coordinating, organising or supporting citizen science initiatives. Experience with citizen science is welcome, but not required, just your willingness to ask, share and discuss about the topic! As different perspectives will enrichen the discussion in our workshops, the organizers are encouraging participation of citizen science enthusiasts from all around the globe. To facilitate international participation, the workshop will take place in English and online (via Zoom).

ABOUT: What innovative ways are Citizen Science projects engaging their audiences?
