Is there a collaborative science?
Can citizens from all over the world participate in scientific projects?
The scientific community involves citizens in mapping scientific data with local or global projects. This helps to widen the amount of information gathered in nature, and actively involves citizens, students, and scientists.
Citizenship provides effective monitoring systems and increasingly important research tools.
We organize meetings, articles, lectures around Italy to raise awareness of the NGO, public authorities, schools and teachers about Citizen science.
Why do citizens participate in Citizen science events? To understand this, we make surveys that help understand the needs of citizens and involve them better in Citizen Science initiatives.
The Italian community is questioning the ways to communicate citizen science, and promote citizen engagement. Scienza collaborativa takes part in the debate and looks for Call to support these ideas.
