Embrace the Bureaucracy: Navigating Institutional Barriers to Citizen Science
Organizer: Lea Shanley - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This symposium explores the challenges to implementing citizen science across U.S. federal agencies and the bureaucracies and operating cultures they contain. The panelists will discuss how they have worked together and independently to address hurdles. In doing so, they will reveal how these organizations have evolved in their thinking about public participation in their activities. Moreover, this session provides a special case study of citizen science in large institutions and will offer potential strategies and solutions that may be useful to citizen science advocates seeking to implement citizen science projects in other organizations.
