World Cafe: Which Citizens Have a Moral Responsibility to Participate in Science, and How Can We Tell When That Responsibility Has Been Fulfilled?
Organizer: Chris Santos-Lang - Citizen Science Belleville
Some people who balk at addressing world hunger and political conflict nonetheless reliably feed their own children and vote in major elections. That may be because family roles and voting rituals help clarify scope of moral responsibility. We might likewise enhance the dependability of citizen science by clarifying scope of moral responsibility: Who should do what, and how can we all tell? Facilitated by members of the CSA ethics working group, attendees of this "World Cafe" will collaboratively identify science which society collectively is morally obliged to conduct, and will identify ways to measure whether the requisite citizens have completed the requisite tasks.

This symposium is structured to collect contribution from credentialed and non-credentialed citizens alike. Each attendee will participate in several brainstorms, each with a different group of 4-5 other attendees. The brainstorms will be structured to build upon each other and to answer our research question.
