The International ECSA Citizen Science Conference is aimed at scientists, practitioners, activists, funders, policy makers in the field of citizen science, non-governmental organizations, artists, and interested citizens. The last conference hosted 368 participants from 30 countries. And because this first ECSA conference was a success, the ECSA steering committee decided to hold this conference biannually in different member countries.
The Second ECSA Conference is going to take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 3 to 5 June 2018. Following questions are going to be discussed at the conference: What role can citizen science play: For grass root organizations? For empowering individual citizens? For increasing scientific literacy?
