Enhancing collective intelligence through citizen science: The case of the GROW citizens’ observatory

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Citizens' observatories (CO) are a recent innovation connecting people, science and technologies to create collaborative data, knowledge and action around environmental challenges, both local and global. We argue COs present a novel framework for collective intelligence, with reference to the GROW Observatory (GROW), which builds community and insights through the collaborative sensing of soil, in particular soil moisture. The ambition in GROW is to enhance and harness collective intelligence through data and knowledge derived in collaboration between community food production networks, soil and satellite scientists, and policy makers, and thereby to play a vital role in addressing issues related to climate action, food security, and life on land.
