Citizen Science

Citizen Science is a key focus of TREND and allows the community to understand and become involved in vital climate adaptation research. As we move towards times of more climatic uncertainty, TREND’s Citizen Scientists can use the latest technologies to directly contribute to data collection, and access current research and information on the implications for South Australia.

Our Citizen Science program recognises the wealth of untapped skills, knowledge and enthusiasm present in our communities and utilises this much overlooked resource to maximise South Australia’s research capabilities.

By bringing together community members, researchers and policy makers, TREND opens up much needed channels of communication, ensuring South Australia can make informed preparations for any future environmental change.
