TeRRIFICA project endorses the Citizen Science SDG Declaration
October 16, 2020
The Citizen Science SDG Conference brought together expertise from policy makers, institutional and citizen scientists, economists, NGOs and civil society. The resulting declaration calls to make Citizen Science a key factor for achieving the SDGs.
With this declaration, we call on European Institutions, EU Member States and their R&I Funding and Performing Organisations, business and civil society to make Citizen Science a key factor across all relevant policies and activities, including in shaping the European Research Area:
- Citizens must be empowered and encouraged to generate new knowledge according to the standards of knowledge generation recognised and tested today.
- Policy makers and research funders must support Citizen Science for the implementation of the 17 SDGs.
The TeRRIFICA project has supported the goals of the Declaration by signing it. Institutions, organisations as well as individuals can sign: http://bit.ly/cs-sdg-declaration
