Engaging the society beyond data collection

Jueves, Septiembre 16, 2021 12:00-15:00 (CEST)

The challenges of ocean monitoring require data from everywhere at all times, we need to involve society in all steps of the process to achieve the information necessary to implement evidence-based policies in coastal and ocean management. But, how to engage citizens? Which are the main barriers? Join us to listen, share and discuss some experiences & lessons learned with the speakers!

The workshop 'Engaging the society beyond data collection' will analyse different challenges in volunteer participation in ocean monitoring projects: from potential barriers for volunteer participation up to how to improve the management of the cost and oceans developing evidence-based policies using in some cases the information generated in these participative processes.
