C-07: Symposium: Citizen Science Crossing the Line: Engendering Behavior Changes in Participants

Citizen Science Crossing the Line: Engendering Behavior Changes in Participants
Organizer: Becca Rodomsky-Bish
Citizen science is being used for more than collecting data. Several projects are exploring the ways that participation can engage individuals in behavior changes. This kind of work helps blur the line between what are often treated as independent systems when collecting data, but which are really profoundly intertwined socio-ecological systems. The leap, however, is not an easy one to make. This symposium collects perspectives from three projects each supporting participants to take the extra step of changing behaviors as a result of their engagement. Talks will cover both successes and failures: from linking online tools to real-world behaviors to the role of social interaction in change. Each project will, also, provide a glimpse into how behavior change is measured within their research. Learn from our work, gain some tools, and join us in crossing the line between data collection and real world impact.
