The working group aims to share existing practices of citizen science in Green spaces (with focus on urban areas). Our aim is to understand the various dimensions on how Green spaces (e.g. Botanical gardens) develop and integrate citizen science approaches and how those contribute (can contribute) in achieving Sustainable Development Goals.
