The European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) will be holding its annual General Assembly in Barcelona on October 28-30. Throughout the three days of the event, over a hundred scientists and citizen science experts from Europe, the United States and Australia will be attending the Association's annual meeting, taking a first-hand look at the most innovative citizen science projects carried out in Barcelona.
‘Saca la Lengua’ (“Stick Out Your Tongue”), the first citizen science project to be led from the Centre for Genomic Regulation, will be featured in the “Barcelona Citizen Science Safari”. In the activity, to be held on the afternoon of October 28, participants follow a route through areas of special scientific relevance in Barcelona, and get to know ten local citizen science projects along the way. Throughout the route, which will take them along the Paseo Marítimo esplanade and Ciutadella Park, participants will be invited to take part in hands-on demonstrations of the projects represented, which are: CitClops (Citizens’ Observatory for Coast and Ocean Optical Monitoring), Atrapaeltigre (Tigatrapp), Observadores del mar (Seawatchers), Flora Urbana y Alergias, BioBlitzBcn, Citi-Sense (led by CREAL), Abejas Urbanas (Urban Bees), Bee-path and Saca la Lengua.
