Blueprints for science communication

The blueprints are the results of a process co-created together with 39 citizen science projects, invited stakeholders and science communication experts, during the CitSciComm Labs. How to address a specific stakeholder for citizen science, case-studies presentations and recommendations are presented. Click on the images below to see and download the blueprints.

Policy brief

Misinformation checklist

When involved in citizen science initiatives, citizen scientists become themselves science communicators being able to influence their closer social spheres as well be considered as primary sources of information for the media. As such, citizen science could be considered as a powerful tool for debunking misinformation, disinformation and fake news. A checklist on how to do it was co-created under NEWSERA.
