Become a Citizen Scientist!

Become a Citizen Scientist!

Workshop on Helping Young People to become Citizen Scientists through Online Mapping of Trees.



Exploration of a free easy-to-use App known Curio-xyz which allows users to plot trees, their location, photos, names, characteristics, stories about them etc. By this process, we create an online record of local trees and forests and learn from the recordings of others.

Through the collection and analysis of data relating to the natural world and by making it freely available and accessible to all, school children and youth are taking on the role of Citizen Scientists. Their scientific data will greatly help professional scientists and local communities to protect trees and increase awareness of their importance as a resource that tackles climate change, protects biodiversity and benefits people’s health.

There will also be an overview of the National Biodiversity Centre app for the mapping of different species of flora and fauna.
