Citizen Science and Community Data:
Inspiring Engagement Between CMU and Local Communities
The Carnegie Mellon University Libraries invites you to join a panel of experts from around the University for a virtual discussion celebrating the impact of citizen science and community data in Pittsburgh and beyond. Moderator Emma Slayton, the Libraries’ Data Curation, Visualization, and GIS Specialist, will explore the exciting work of three CMU leaders as they share their passion for community-focused projects, innovative approaches to engaging communities in collecting and utilizing their own data, and ideas on how those in academia can support community-led advocacy.
Each panelist brings their own unique experience using community data throughout every step of a project, from working with community partners to collect data, to using open science to bridge the gap between academic institutions and community organizations, to understanding how to tell a story with data to further positive social change. We hope you leave the discussion excited about the impact of citizen science and community data, and with innovative new tools to help you engage your own communities in future work.
This is a virtual event. Please register to attend. The event link will be included in the confirmation.
