Germany’s 2020 EU Council presidency hosts Citizen Science SDG Conference


Germany’s 2020 EU Council presidency is hosting a hybrid conference on the 14th and 15th of October 2020 under the topic ‘Knowledge for Change: A decade of Citizen Science (2020-2030) in support of the SDGs’. The conference will take part in Berlin or online. 

A public Citizen Science Festival organised by Wissenschaft im Dialog (WiD), the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) and the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN) will take place as part of the conference on 14-15 October 2020 at the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin.

The Citizen Science Festival 2020 follows the same themes as those of the international conference and aims to show how citizen science can contribute to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving a more sustainable society. 

10 German citizen science projects and 10 citizen science projects from Europe and beyond will be invited to showcase their projects and results at market stands and invite visitors to the festival to interact and participate.

Visitors can discover exciting research and exchange ideas. A curated complementary programme will include lectures, workshops, hands-on activities and science ‘slams’.
