Visit from South Korea

On the August 17th Erin Roger, Amy Slocombe and Michelle Neil, together with Streamwatch coordinator Greg McDonald, hosted a South Korean delegation at the Australian Museum in Sydney. Ms Park (Dongguk University) and Mr Kim (Korea University) were in Australia on a research trip to gather information for their new citizen science project “Building a Citizen Science Platform in South Korea”. It was interesting to chat with people who are just starting to realise the potential of citizen science, and who are seeking to learn from countries who are ahead in this space. Ms Park and Mr Kim are aspiring to establish citizen science as a mainstream scientific strategy for their country and it was rewarding to be able to share ACSA’s story with them, and a great opportunity for us to reflect on how far we’ve come in such a short period of time! We hope to see Ms Park and Mr Kim at our conference next February!
