CREAL participates in the new EU research project CITI-SENSE about empowerment of citizens in environmental issues

Last Friday 26th October the CREAL researcher, Mark Nieuwenhuijsen, participated in a press conference at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic with the objective of presenting the new research project called CITI-SENSE.

This project, funded by European Comission and coordinated by NILU-Norwegian Institute for Air Research, will develop “citizens’ observatories” to empower citizens to contribute to and participate in environmental governance, to enable them to support and influence community and societal priorities and associated decision making.

CITI-SENSE will develop, test, demonstrate and validate a community-based environmental monitoring and information system using innovative and novel Earth Observation applications.

To achieve this, the project will: raise environmental awareness in citizens, raise user participation in societal environmental decisions and provide feedback on the impact that citizens had in decisions. It will address the call’s request for effective participation by citizens in environmental stewardship, based on broad stakeholder and user involvement in support of both community and policy priorities. The project aims to learn from citizen experience and perception and enable citizenship co-participation in community decision making and co-operative planning.
