On 25 October, Ideasquare, CERN’s innovation space, will host a workshop sharing the methodology and tools that the team uses to help students and citizens turn their ideas on challenges related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into concrete, prototype-like proposals for the Crowd4SDG project.
Through an innovation cycle called GEAR (Gather, Evaluate, Accelerate, Refine), the transdisciplinary Crowd4SDG consortium of six partners (among which CERN) promotes the development of citizen science projects aimed at tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a focus on climate action.
The consortium is currently running its third call for projects. You can discover the projects developed during the project’s first year here and those prepared over the course of the second year here.
If you are interested in organizing a hackathon, a more extended series of workshops, or maybe even in developing a curriculum as part of a university course aiming to tackle SDG challenges via the power of the crowd, join us online on 25 October 2022 at 4 p.m. (CET). During the session, we will present the methodology and tools used for the Crowd4SDG GEAR cycle and explore together how these might be useful to you.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
