How can citizen science create positive change in the world? Join this online course to discover soil and food growing data and results generated by citizen scientists like you who are collaborating with the GROW Observatory. Become familiar with datasets, learn to identify patterns, errors and insights that can create change from the local to the global.

You will explore the potential of art to communicate complex scientific data and concepts and become one of the first to experience the work of GROW’s artist in residence.

This course is for you if you are interested in any of the following subjects: soil, food growing, agriculture, ecosystems and the environment, technology, earth observation, sensors, environmental governance. Participants won’t need any prior experience but it might be of particular relevance to small farmers, community and urban growers, gardeners, land managers, allotment growers, fab lab users, environmental NGOs, people interested in food production and citizen science, as well as teachers in science and environment-related subjects.
