The ECSA Conference 2022 invites researchers from all disciplines, scientists, practitioners, activists, funders, policymakers, non-governmental organisations, artists, and other interested citizens worldwide to reflect, discuss, and network on the topic of Citizen Science for Planetary Health.
The concept of planetary health is based on the understanding that human health and human civilization depend on thriving natural systems and the sustainable stewardship of those natural systems. This demands not only knowledge and commitment of health and environmental sciences, but inter- and transdisciplinary efforts from all research fields and societal and political actors.
Planetary health has three challenges:
Citizen science could be one way to address these challenges. Watch a video on the concept of Planetary Health here (In French) here (In German) and on the potential of Citizen Science and Planetary Health here.
We specifically welcome joint submissions by members of the Citizen Science and Planetary Health communities. The call is open for proposals on the main theme as well as on other topics in the field of citizen science. The submission of contributions by citizen researchers, science communicators, scientists and all other interested parties is encouraged.
The call for proposals for the 4th ECSA Conference is now open until May 31, 2022.
All info are available on the conference website.
