Last November 6-8, the first accredited University of Barcelona Citizen Science training gathered more than 160 participants. This training was organized by a partnership between University of Barcelona (UB) and The Table of entities of the third sector of Catalonia. The training was especially focused on discussing the social impact of citizen science and was aiming to foster new collaborations between civil society organizations and academic researchers.
“Heat Chronicles” was one out of the nine UB Citizen Science projects that were showcased and discussed during the training. During the roundtable “Experience a Citizen Science project in the first person”, Heat Chronicles was represented by Andrea Esteller, educator a Fundació Comtal, who participated to the first “Heat Chronicles” workshop in July 2023. During the following two days, six Citizen Science key ideas were structured into learning modules: Co-creation, Community, Tools, Data, Ethics and Action. “Heat Chronicles” was critically presented by Isabelle Bonhoure within the Tools and Ethics modules.
All materials are available at the newly created Citizen Science UB webpage and will be soon into English.
