About the toolkit
The ACTION toolkit is the ultimate resource collection for everyone interested in doing citizen science the ACTION-way. The focus is on CS against environmental pollution, but other types of projects may benefit from it, too. The toolkit draws on the expertise in pollution, citizen science, participatory design, social innovation, socio-economic studies, open science, social computing, open data and software development in the ACTION team, to ensure it suits the requirements of citizen science projects, addressing the practical problems that they face throughout the different stages of each project.
The participatory science lifecycle (image above) was developed by the ACTION team to summarise and visualise the flow of CS project activities. Not all CS projects will follow the same structure: They may take the same steps in a different order, do multiple at the same time, or skip some of them altogether. The lifecycle acts as a guideline to show what activities could happen in CS projects.
