Hybrid and hopeful, this week’s SDGs and Citizen Science conference in Berlin

81 presentations, 50 e-posters, 18 sessions, 5 plenary talks, 2 panel discussions, 1 evening event – that’s what made up the Knowledge for Change: A decade of Citizen Science (2020-2030) Conference in support of the SDGs conference in Berlin this week. All this along with a huge amount of people power led by an organisational team who managed to pull off this really challenging hybrid event with such success. The CS Track team were delighted to be part of this stimulating event with presentations by Michael Straehle and Christine Urban on the extent to which Citizen Science really democratises science, by Patricia Santos who presented the first results of the CS Track database, you will find Patricia’s slides here and by Sven Manske and Julia Lorke on using analytics for community monitoring and support in online citizen science projects, you will find Sven and Julia’s slides here. One of the most important outputs from this conference is the Our World – Our Goals Declaration the subject of much discussion on the second day.
