WeObserve Open Data Challenge
Ongoing until July, May 15, 2020
Dive into the EU’s richest citizen science environmental data with the WeObserve Open Data Challenge For the first time citizens, communities, academics and technologists from all over the world will have access to some of the EU’s richest citizen generated environmental data, spanning the H2020 Citizen Observatory projects GROW Observatory, Groundtruth 2.0, Landsense and Scent. Citizen Observatories are a series of projects where people across the world come together to monitor how their local areas and the planet are changing. The projects have engaged with tens of thousands of “citizen scientists” who assisted in gathering data at unprecedented scale for themes such as air and water quality, wildlife, land cover and soil. The Open Data Challenge (ODC) is a competitive online event and tender for participating individuals/teams to innovate using open environmental data from Citizen Observatories.
ECSA Conference 2020
ONLINE, Sep 06, 2020
The conference will be held online from 6-10 September 2020, with the planned sessions spread from Monday to Thursday. On Sunday the 6th, COVID-19 permitting, we will have some citizen science activities either online or through various local gatherings if allowed. While meeting in person brings huge benefits, we hope to capitalise on the opportunities an online conference will bring. These include a chance for even more people to be involved, including those from outside of Europe. It is also a chance to explore and test ways of interacting effectively online, which is likely to become an increasing part of how we live and work. We will work to ensure that the social elements of the conference are kept, as far as possible. And of course an online event means that the environment will benefit as well, as a lot of CO2 emissions will be saved.
