Citizen Science projects engage people in scientific research, involving them in a broad range of activities to produce scientific knowledge, from mapping natural phenomena to analysing historical documents.
Citizen Science allows the collection and processing of data on a scale that would be impossible with traditional research methods. This is particularly relevant for monitoring environmental factors at the local and global level, as technologies like smartphones and personal computers open up innovative and effective methods and techniques.
Above all though, Citizen Science fosters public awareness and interest in scientific research, empowering communities to take ownership of the questions and problems being addressed, which often directly affect them and their communities.
The Transglobal Expedition Crew advocates for the involvement of all people in Citizen Science. During the journey, they will join and champion two fascinating Citizen Science projects expanding the frontier of knowledge for science and society.
