European Citizen Science Association Conference 2022
The next ECSA conference will take place in Berlin from 5-8 October 2022. The ECSA 2022 Conference runs under the cross-cutting theme of "Citizen Science for Planetary Health". It will be hosted by the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.
Citizen Science for Planetary Health
The health of our planet is at risk. To preserve and support the well-being of all life on Earth, we need the commitment and efforts of everyone - policy makers, the public, business, science and research. Citizen science offers effective and innovative ways to do transdisciplinary research and influence decision-making in multiple areas and ways. Citizen science is particularly suited to connect diverse fields and diverse actors in the common endeavour of collaborating in research.
The concept of planetary health is based on the understanding that human health and human civilisation depend on thriving natural systems and the sustainable stewardship of those natural systems. This demands not only knowledge, commitment and engagement of health and environmental sciences, but inter- and transdisciplinary efforts from all research fields and societal and political actors.
