CS goes to the heart of the issue of who owns the truth by engaging, educating, and informing people about climate change and enhancing public understanding of science. Participation in CS can make the achievements of science and technology accessible, increase trust in science, enhance critical thinking and ultimately enable communities to be more involved in the governance and design of their futures. How can we harness the potential of CS for the benefit of all?
Help us to do this by playing Our Citizen Science Futures game with us.
