This event will focus on issues of citizen science and data practices in relation to energy use. How does citizen science engage with local and regional energy issues? How do/could citizen science projects be leveraged to educate and shift citizen engagement with energy use? How do these projects work through digital platforms, and how often do citizen scientists collaborate with academics or campus communities? “Energy Wise” panelists will describe citizen science projects they have worked on, highlighting how the projects 1) leverage digital platforms for data collection and public communication, 2) how citizen scientists work with universities or academic researchers, and 3) how these projects shift public thinking about energy use writ large.
