Community and Citizen Science in the Far North
Warning messageSubmissions for this form are closed.
This virtual conference was held 5–7 October 2021. The focus of the conference was on sharing, networking, and discussing the various aspects of conducting community and citizen science research in the Arctic. This conference was in response to a growing community of Arctic researchers, Arctic communities, and Arctic visitors that are becoming more engaged in research. Although there are many resources regarding community and citizen science available online, they are not specific to the Arctic. The primary goal of the conference was to provide an opportunity to share knowledge and increase networking among researchers, community members, and other practitioners of community and citizen science in the circumpolar Arctic (e.g., it's not limited to one region, state, or country). A post-conference white paper, as well as archived presentations, will contribute to the overall community and citizen science community’s shared knowledge base, long-term goals, and a growing community of practice. The conference was on social media using #CCSFarNorth at @ArcticResearch on Twitter and Facebook.
