European Commission launches new video to promote citizen science

EC Citizen ScienceThe E.C. has made available online a video presenting the concept and challenges of citizen science (CS).

Furthermore, the video interviews Tom Wakeford, Reader in Public Science and Citizen Engagement at Coventry University, UK and examines the value of CS for environmental policy.

Can citizen science help to drive environmental policy? What is its added value? What is the difference between verified and direct citizen science? Do these differences matter? What are scientists blind spots and how can citizen help circumvent them?

These answers and more in the EC video, to watch here.
