Patrick van Zwanenberg in the 4th ECSA Conference

Our mate Patrick van Zwanenberg presented today “Citizen-scientist generated knowledge for open source seed innovation in Argentina” in the 4th ECSA (European Citizen Science Association) Conference, based on our experience in Bioleft.

The 4th ECSA Conference runs under the cross-cutting theme of Citizen Science for Planetary Health. The concept of planetary health is based on the understanding that human health and human civilization depend on thriving natural systems and the sustainable stewardship of those natural systems. This demands not only knowledge, commitment and engagement of health and environmental sciences, but inter- and transdisciplinary efforts from all research fields and societal and political actors.

The ECSA 2022 Conference invited researchers from all disciplines, civil society actors, citizen scientists, policy decision-makers and all interested in the topic in Europe and worldwide to reflect, discuss and network around the topic of Citizen Science for Planetary Health.
