About

Citizen Observatory and Information Hub will build an engaging front-end knowledge and action platform for the provision of biodiversity management and monitoring tools and protocols to be used by farmers and other citizens. Training modules and other learning materials will be hosted and a range of material in support of citizen science monitoring campaigns will be developed. This will include the development of an online game, the FRAMEwork Biodive game, to help farmers visualise their existing contributions to biodiversity, facilitate goal setting and provide feedback on successful ‘nudges’ to behaviour change. The Citizen Observatory and Information Hub will also include infrastructure for the provision of new sets of open, harmonised, high-quality citizen generated data, with a focus on data integration/interoperability with existing data platforms, e.g. GBIF, GEO BON (GEOSS). Collaboration with existing citizen observatories (e.g. LandSense, WeObserve, the GROW Observatory) and links with other biodiversity monitoring and agrobiodiversity projects (e.g. SFS-01 sub-topic B) will be established.
