CSaP published a report on future directions for citizen science and public policy

The Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) in the UK has published a new report entitled “Future Directions for Citizen Science & Public Policy” in June, 2021. Over the past year CSaP has brought together policymakers and academics to discuss citizen science — practices that tap into ‘citizen knowledges’, as one of our authors describes it. Through a series of seminars, lectures and online conferences we have gathered a breadth of views on the challenges and opportunities that governments face in integrating citizen science into public policy. This collection addresses both, but on the whole illuminates how citizen science can lead to more inclusive and effective decision making across a range of policy domains. Read the full report here.
