SCORE Webinar #6: Engaging and empowering citizens with low-cost sensors for monitoring climate change hazards

Description

Citizen science plays a crucial role in monitoring climate change by engaging ordinary citizens in data collection and analysis, expanding the scope of climate observation and empowering communities to understand and address local climate challenges. In this webinar we will explore the role of citizen science in monitoring climate change hazards using low-cost sensors and provide an overview of low-cost DIY sensor technologies. Experts from the SCORE project will explain how to deploy and operate low-cost sensor networks and showcase some successful citizen science initiatives from the project so far.
