Join our next Citizen Science event and discover how citizen science can contribute to public health.

When: 3pm – 5:00pm, 25 March, 2020
Where: Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre, 251 Faraday St, Carlton.
RSVP: via Eventbrite

Guest presenters:

  • Ann Borda, Centre for the Digital Transformation of Health – The University of Melbourne 
    Ann is a Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for the Digital Transformation of Health at The University of Melbourne. Ann has a PhD in information science from University College London which has served as a springboard for her commitment towards transdisciplinary scholarship. Ann’s own research focuses on participatory health, digital health literacy, and smart cultural heritage.
  • Ollie Conlan, Bicycle Network
    More than two thirds of Australians, including children, don’t get enough exercise. The stats tell us that too many people are spending too much time sitting and not enough time moving. It’s a problem that we’re fighting hard to solve. With your help, Bicycle Network is making it easier for everybody to ride a bike, every day.

Presentations will be followed by time for group discussion and networking. We encourage you to come along and share your project stories and develop our community of practice.

Registration and full details via Eventbrite.

 

The Australian Citizen Science Association convenes a community of practice in citizen science, exploring ways to make participation in research by non-scientists not just instructive, but also engaging, fun and social. Our thanks to our Chair, Kade Mills for hosting this gathering.
