Community Building with Zooniverse, an Online Platform for Citizen Science

  • This event has passed.

Join a special event co-hosted by Faith in Place and Chicago Muslims Green Team, in collaboration with the AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics, & Religion and Zooniverse.
Citizen Science is a way that everyone can make valuable contributions to research along with professional scientists. Zooniverse is the largest and most popular online platform for citizen science, where people of all ages and from all walks of life can contribute to projects in diverse fields of study. Many of these projects focus on environmental research, and are therefore of interest to everyone concerned with issues related to environmental justice.
Speakers will include: Opening remarks from Faith in Place Executive Director, Rev. Brian Sauder; Faith in Place Board Member and Chicago Muslims Green Team Leader, Caroline K. Williams; Dr. Grace Wolf-Chase of the Planetary Science Institute; and Seth Magle from the Lincoln Park Zoo. Dr. Rohany Nayan will moderate the discussion.
Join us to learn how you can participate in the environmental movement from almost anywhere!
