Citizen Science Across a Spectrum: Building Partnerships to Broaden the Impact of Citizen Science
Alison Parker - ORISE fellow hosted by the US Environmental Protection Agency
Citizen science and community science include a spectrum of efforts and projects, supported by various partnership structures and focused on widely varying outcomes that support environmental protection -- ranging from a pastor in El Paso, Texas using local knowledge of burials to indicate a cancer cluster to a bucket brigade in Tonawanda, NY providing the first set of data for EPA enforcement actions. Recent recommendations from the National Advisory Council on Environmental Policy and Technology to the US Environmental Protection Agency highlight a spectrum of opportunities associated with incorporating and supporting environmental citizen science. This symposium explores the role that partnerships play in increasing the impact of work across this spectrum of project outcomes from community engagement to regulatory action. This symposium outlines the many modes of citizen science, the people using citizen science and the methods for doing citizen science. Beyond research and peer-reviewed publications, what are the range of impacts that can come from a citizen science project? How can projects collaborate for maximum impact, from engaging communities all the way to enforcement action? How can different types of partnerships support identifying, collecting and using appropriate data and information towards different outcomes? During the panel and discussion, we will have opportunities for audience participation, including the opportunity to present additional projects and where they fall on the spectrum of citizen science outcomes.
