About the Global Partnership
In December 2017, representatives from the global citizen science community came together at the Science-Policy-Business Forum preceding the 3 rd UN-Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya. With encouragement from the UN-Environment Programme (UNEP), community members outlined the parameters of a new network-of-networks with five initial goals:
1. Become a valued partner and common point of entry for NGOs, governments, businesses, and scientific organizations seeking to understand and work with the global citizen science community.
2. Network with and help support citizen science umbrella organizations, including the Citizen Science Association (CSA), the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA), the Australian Citizen Science Association (ACSA), emerging associations in other geographic regions, and related networks or communities.
3. Network with and help support or manage consortia of citizen science projects conducting research around a specific topic of interest, such as the Global Mosquito Alert Consortium (GMAC) which was created to advance citizen science for mosquitovector monitoring.
4. Help catalogue, manage and share open and interoperable data for use in local-toglobal research and decision-making.
5. Understand and track the contributions of citizen science towards the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
We are looking for your help and initiative to co-design and grow this network of networks.
