Become a citizen scientist!

and explore how the outdoors impacts our wellbeing

My local area theme

What’s on offer?

an interactive drop-in event about becoming a citizen scientist and exploring how urban green and blue spaces impact our health and wellbeing. We will have a variety of activities for a range of ages, some of which will be more ‘hands on’ (e.g., adding ideas to the Ideas Tree), some more technology-based (e.g., using Our Outdoors and Map-Me apps).

What’s it about?

Come along to this interactive drop-in session to find out more about what it means to be a citizen scientist, how the outdoors impacts our health and wellbeing, and how you can get involved! We’ll be hosting a variety of activities suitable for all ages for everyone to take part in.

Who’s leading the event?

Ruth Jepson, Professor of Public Health in Social Science, University of Edinburgh
