How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?: 
I helped co-found the Lecturers withour borders project, now based at CRI Paris, together with other European researchers. We want to pair travelling researchers with schools in remote areas that volunteer to host a lecturer. We use this opportunity to expose kids and local societies to science topics they have never heard of or are curious about engaging their interest in science. Citizen scientists will be hopefully motivated and/or born from this exchange since we give information on how people can stay in contact with science even after the visiting scientist leaves. You may see our website scied.network for more information.
