Advancing Citizen Science for Coastal and Ocean Research

Citizen Science is an approach which involves members of the public in gathering scientific data and, in more advanced cases, also involves them in the analysis of such data and in the design of scientific research. Benefits of this approach include enhancing monitoring capabilities, empowering citizens and increasing Ocean Literacy, which can itself lead to the development of environmentally-friendly behaviours. There is a long history of citizen participation in science as a general concept. However, the process of studying and understanding the best ways to develop, implement, and evaluate Citizen Science is just beginning and it has recently been proposed that the study of the process and outcomes of Citizen Science merits acknowledgement as a distinct discipline in its own right.

Considering the vastness of the ocean, the extensiveness of the world’s coastlines, and the diversity of habitats, communities and species, a full scientific exploration and understanding of this realm requires intensive research and observation activities over time and space. Citizen Science is a potentially powerful tool for the generation of scientific knowledge to a level that would not be possible for the scientific community alone. Additionally, Citizen Science initiatives should be promoted because of their benefits in creating awareness of the challenges facing the world’s ocean and increasing Ocean Literacy.

Responding to this, the European Marine Board convened a Working Group on Citizen Science, whose main aim was to provide new ideas and directions to further the development of Marine Citizen Science, with particular consideration for the European context.

This position paper introduces the concept and rationale of Citizen Science, in particular regarding its relationship to marine research. The paper then explores European experiences of Marine Citizen Science, presenting common factors of success for European initiatives as examples of good practice. The types of data amenable to Citizen Science are outlined, along with concerns and measures relating to ensuring the scientific quality of those data. The paper further explores the social aspects of participation in Marine Citizen Science, outlining the societal benefits in terms of impact and education. The current and potential future role of technology in Marine Citizen Science projects is also addressed including, the relationship between citizens and earth observations, and the relevance of progress in the area of unmanned observing systems. The paper finally presents proposals for the improved integration and management of Marine Citizen Science on a European scale. This leads to a detailed discussion on Marine Citizen Science informing Marine Policy, taking into account the requirements of the Aarhus Convention as well as the myriad of EU marine and environmental policies.

The paper concludes with the presentation of eight Strategic Action Areas for Marine Citizen Science in Europe. These action areas, which are aimed not only at the marine research community, but also at scientists from multiple disciplines (including non-marine), higher education institutions, funding bodies and policy makers, should together enable coherent future Europe-wide application of Marine Citizen Science for the benefit of all.

Combining Arts and Citizen Science - Mobilising participation
Citizen science approaches have become increasingly popular and embedded into data collection methods and participatory research. Our NGO (Bristol Natural History Consortium) has been working over the last 10 years on developing major public-facing activities that bring together tourism, heritage studies, and the arts alongside citizen science activities and educational activities. What new types of thinking and participation can we encourage through new research methods ? What special opportunities does the arts provide for engaging people with the natural world ? We look forward to sharing new ideas, practical activities, robust audience research and evaluation, and proposals for new collaborative international activities.

The Swedish Mass Experiments – a Win-Win for Schools and Scientists
Since 2009, the Swedish non-profit organisation VA (Public & Science ; in Swedish Vetenskap & Allmänhet) has been coordinating an annual national citizen science event for schools – a mass experiment. The mass experiment is part of ForskarFredag, the Swedish events on the European Researchers’ Night. Through the mass experiments, thousands of Swedish students from preschool to upper secondary school have contributed to the development of scientific knowledge on a diverse range of topics, such as the acoustic environment in classrooms, storage of refrigerated foods, children’s and adolescents’ perception of hazardous environments and the development of autumn leaves in deciduous trees. In 2015 the “Tea Bag Experiment” studied the decomposition of organic material in soil and its relation to climate change, by means of a newly developed, standardised method built upon the burying and weighing of tea bags. This year’s experiment is a citizen humanities project about the traditional bulletin board. Students will take photographs, transcribe and translate the contents of bulletin boards around the country, with an aim of creating an open database for a long-term participatory research project. Through the mass experiments the students get to participate in real research, while the researcher is provided with massive amounts of data. From the teachers’ point of view, the mass experiments provide them with material and methods based upon state-of-the-art research to integrate into the curriculum. The mass experiments efficiently link education to research, establishing valuable contacts with researchers and giving students insights into research methods and scientific thinking.

Networking for Sustainability : Challenges and Opportunities from Sparkling Science
Sparkling science is a participatory research program in Austria with the specific characteristic : scientistis work side by side with young people in current scientific research projects. As junior colleagues schoolchildren take an active part of the research project, introduce important suggestions into the research approach, collaborate in the conception and conducting of investigations, conduct polls, collect data, interpret it together with the researchers and present the results in creative ways as Science Slams, animated movies, songs…
Challenges and opportunities will be shown from the case of two Sparkling Science projects “Landscape and You-th” (2012-2015) and “BreadTime” (2015-2016) : the challenges and opportunities for the research partners, the meaning of reflexion, specifics of data production and evaluation, characteristics of presentation of results.
“BreadTime” focuses on the cultural sustainability and the manifold agricultural and manual practices of the cultivation and processing of grains and the production of bread.
The project “Landscape and You-th – Tracing Flax” focusses on the relationship between local knowledge, landscape and regional identity on the basis of cultivation and manufacturing of the plant flax.
In both projects students from Secondary lower schools and the Secondary upper schools were instructed in the method of oral history and interviewed elder locals about the traditional cultivation. Several media products and performances, like an app, a documentary film, a RAP song… should enhance landscape awareness and sustainable tourism in the region and offer added value for all stakeholders.

STEAM- an all encompassing approach to education
We need to to encourage people to view STEM differently, to perceive Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths as a set of tools with which to create, design, troubleshoot, innovate, and imagine. We want STEAM learning to expand non-linearly and nurture a culture of multidisciplinary disruptive innovation through the power of inspiration and creativity.
We need to nurture an international network with global reach because the challenges we need to solve are global. STEAM needs to be fostered everywhere to catalyze human progress worldwide.

Collaboration of Civil society with National Statistic Offices in Geo Data for a real Data Revolution
The Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Data Revolution raises many opportunities and challenges, such as the innovative use of modern technologies by citizenry in data collection and data presentation with the arising new data sources for official statistics. More recently, the UN World Data Forum was hosted in South Africa under the guidance of the United Nations Statistical Commission with special focus on Development Statistics. Among other objectives, this Forum addressed the intensification of collaboration between governments and civil society stakeholders all around the world. As civil society representatives, we learned from this experience that many governments are truly interested in civil society data base projects. Many NSOs expressed a growing interest in the Openstreetmap (OSM) geodatabase, although some are reluctant and intrigued about how to use data and how to partner with this kind of projects.
On the other hand, many worried government agencies around the world are seeing how their shrinking budgets call for a change in processes, among others for data collection. They are also intrigued about how to use these data and how to work with these civic tech groups, although they may accept that the use of external collaboration can be a great tool to their sustainable development data collection needs. Some have already accepted the assistance and contributions from civil society and other stakeholders, in particular to fill gaps on census coverages and SDG indicators. In this regard, the STATS UP project http://marketplace.data4sdgs.org/resources/stats-filling-statistics-gap-sdg-dissagregating-grassroots-help-nsos aspires to contribute to these needs bringing more allies into the SDG indicators production and census rounds, taking advantage of the effectiveness of the open source and geo open data platforms.
The moment to enhance this collaboration between Statistical Offices and civic tech groups is just right in the case of geo open data. The use of new geodata means a great opportunity for local territories to be represented in a greater scale by means of data collection, leveraging a more human scale approach to assure equality in the attainability of sustainable development goals (SDG) . Probably this is because open geodata offers a richer value to address all tiers, especially 2 and 3 level indicators. They can certainly enhance the SDG dialogue in a more “visible” and direct way. For instance, addressing Goal 3.2 asks to “end preventable deaths of newborns”. This goal claims to know and share globally the “where” of health care services, including midwives, are located and what quality of attention they offer, including distances and available means of transport for the assistance to child birth. The more visible local issues are, the easier to tackle they can be. Other many spatial objects can be found in each of the 17 Goals.
This presentation will condense the conclusions of the UN Data Forum that may need civic tech collaboration and will explain how collaboration can be more efficient based on global agreements to collaborate with governments. It will also portray the Stats Up project of citizens collecting data for the National Statistic Offices in selected countries using indicators and visualizations to illustrate. The lecture will also explain how to work out agreements with public data organizations filling identified gaps in the SDG indicators production and census coverages in candidate countries.
Finally, when possible. it will draw lessons about challenges and opportunities for citizenship to collaborate with governments and statistical offices.
