Citizen Science and Innovation in Monitoring and Achieving the SDGs
On January 29th, 2022 at 1:00 pm during the third edition of #LearningPlanet Festival, which will take place from 22nd to 29th January 2022, an online workshop titled “Mobilizing Youths for Climate Action: Citizen Science and Innovation in Monitoring and Achieving the SDGs” will be held. The event aims to explore ways in which youths can learn to become innovators for the SDGs, and opportunities for scaling up, and help the teams to move their projects towards deployment.
In this workshop, you will hear from the transdisciplinary student teams who have been selected in the Crowd4SDG programme that promotes the development of citizen science projects aimed at tackling the SDG’s, with a focus on climate action. The participants, who have been chosen through an online selection and coaching of citizen-generated ideas on climate and gender issues in autumn 2021, are following a robust innovation cycle called GEAR (Gather, Evaluate, Accelerate, Refine). They are now finetuning the implementation of their citizen science projects to tackle the SDGs in their local communities.
The Crowd4SDG consortium (UNIGE, CERN, CSIC, IIIA, Politecnico di Milano, UNITAR, Universite de Paris and Learning Planet Institute) promotes citizen science aimed at the SDGs, focusing on Climate Action.
