Citizen Science complements traditional scientific expertise by engaging the general public in the scientific process, and provides new knowledge by supporting collaborative intelligence and co-creation. By facilitating scientific and community-based solutions, Citizen Science plays a key role in supporting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda.
The Citizen Science Center Zurich aims at enabling researchers and citizens to create and conduct research collaborations that produce excellent science while supporting the SDGs.
"Science is critical to help meet the challenges for sustainable development as it lays the foundation for new approaches, solutions and technologies to identify, clarify and tackle global challenges for the future."
