Projects per year
The Empathy Timeline tool is designed for community members and citizen science practitioners wanting to start a new project and is designed to be used at the beginning of a citizen science project. This Empathy Timeline method involves asking community members to think about the complexities of the shared issue they would like to monitor. The tool helps community members become aware of their own subjective viewpoints on environmental problems, as this approach allows participants to think about their own personal perceptions. This reflexivity can be achieved by having community members talk about the ways that they are affected by the issue, but also the ways that they contribute to it. An empathy timeline facilitates community building by bringing people together to discuss issues and consider them in a way that they perhaps have not often done before.
This page includes an Empathy Timeline guidance document which outlines the tool, the steps, resources needed and useful links that can explain the process of using the tool yourself. The page also includes an Empathy Timeline canvas and a collection of sample shapes, both of which can be used in conducting the Empathy Timeline activity.
