And here is the second post in the series! Today I’m focussing on the Citizen Science Initiative called Earth Day Challenge 2020. I only became aware of this Challenge yesterday (24/03/2021), so I thought I’ll share this with all of you. If you are like me (and the rest of the MBP family) and would like to make a change in your community, why not join this challenge?
So what is the Global Earth Challenge?
In short, it is a coordinated citizen science campaign, using mobile technology. Basically, you’ll collect some data like; air quality, water quality and other things like insect populations. With all of the data, it will provide valuable insight and a platform for a change in policy in the area where the data is collected.
“Using mobile technology and open citizen science data, Global Earth Challenge™ empowers people around the world to help monitor and mitigate threats to environmental and human health in their community.”www.earthday.org/campaign/global-earth-challenge/
