inclusiveness & equity
We work with organizers of projects in citizen science, community-based research and other forms of participatory research to co-create resources and facilitate exchange on inclusiveness, equity and empowerment in participatory research. The overall aim is that more people, from more diverse backgrounds, can participate in participatory research activities, shape them according to their wishes, and generate impacts that address their needs.
The working group was set up at the ECSA General Assembly in Geneva, 2018 in cooperation with the Living Knowledge Network for science shops and community-based research. Group members share an interest in increased cooperation, exchange of experiences and development of methods - one of the three strategic pillars in the ECSA strategy. This, we hope, will contribute to strengthening the focus on empowerment among civil society and through the focus and impacts of citizen science activities.
