‘All Must Have Prizes’: Citizen Science and the Environment – Professor Carolyn Roberts via Gresham College

September 6th, 2019

'All Must Have Prizes': Citizen Science and the Environment - Professor Carolyn Roberts via Greshem College

Prior to the twentieth century, most environmental observations such as rainfall amounts and air temperatures were made by lay observers with interest and time on their hands. Later on, such measurements moved largely into the realms of professionals, but today the role of amateur observers is being revisited. The advent of smart phones and GPS is increasingly allowing citizen observers of wildlife, ecology, air and water quality, and flooding, to enhance our understanding of environmental science. What opportunities exist for individuals to help to solve some of the most complex problems on Earth? And what motivates people to join an environmental research team?

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website.

Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 2,000 lectures free to access or download from the website.
