Working together with local communities
Community science has the power to transform your science into an impactful force for good! Thriving Earth Exchange defines community science as communities and scientists working together. Over the last 6 years, our scientists have been working with communities to develop tools and solutions that address community priorities related to climate change, natural hazards and natural resources. During that time, we’ve developed a process by which these two parties can best work together.
In this workshop, participants will learn first-hand about Thriving Earth Exchange, our community science approach and engage in real life community science scenarios. Objectives of this workshop include:
- Identify barriers to co-creation of science and ways to overcome these barriers.
- Provide concrete strategies that scientists can employ to make community science projects a success.
- Teach participants how to scope community science projects through hands-on interactive activities that allow them to practice strategies and techniques
