One thought on “Opening Science to Society – a global challenge

  • Dion Dior

    I’m sorry I missed this event. I have some great ideas for connecting science and the general population through nature field journaling and visual data collection.

    The nature journal movement is a worldwide phenomenon right now, it opens natural science up to a broader population who are looking for more purpose and deeper connections with nature.

    Keeping and maintaining an illustrated nature journal is a skill that is open to anyone and everyone. People need guidance, direction, and a conduit to the science through a skilled nature journal instructor. I am that person and I have a host of ideas and programs that could be combined with citizen science field projects to attract and engage more people that ever before.

    I am happy to discuss further if you are interested. (0426-149-166,, @_dion.dior_ , or FB: Dion Dior.

    Best regards, Dion Dior.
