Upcoming Event: Citizen Science & the National Climate Assessment
The vision for the sustained National Climate Assessment involves identifying a set of indicators—or key physical, ecological, and societal variables—that can be used to track climate changes, impacts, and responses and to inform climate-related decisions. A roundtable at the Wilson Center will explore ways in which crowd-based approaches, such as citizen science and community-based monitoring, are and can be used to support indicator networks. Representatives from USGCRP agencies will give keynote speeches and participate in a panel discussion.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration for in-person attendance is required. A live webcast of the event will be available, and Twitter users can follow the event by monitoring @STIPCommonsLab and using #indicatorsCitSci to ask questions.
