ACTION
aims to transform

ACTION transforms the way we do citizen science today:
from a predominantly scientist-led process to a more participatory, inclusive, citizen-led one, which acknowledges the diversity of the citizen science landscape and the different, evolving challenges citizen science teams must meet as their project develops. By bringing together and considering the needs of multiple stakeholders throughout the entire lifecycle of citizen science, we create methodologies, tools and guidelines that will democratise the scientific process, allowing anyone to design and realise a citizen science project, from the early stages of project ideation to validating and publishing the results and beyond.

toolkit

Fewer moths because of light pollution

By Roy van Grunsven - DBC Light pollution is well known to affect individual moths. To what extent this also has a negative impact on moth populations was unknown. Insects can lay a lot of eggs and food availability and larval survival may determine population sizes...
