Advancing the Participatory Sciences
Participatory sciences include community science, citizen science, community-based monitoring, volunteer research, and more — research and monitoring efforts that depend on knowledge, insights, or observations from members of the public.
What We Do
Members of the Association for Advancing Participatory Sciences are building, sustaining, researching, and advancing these projects — they are scientists, project managers, educators, evaluators, researchers, students, community leaders, policymakers, communicators and more. By uniting across disciplines, roles, and perspectives, members advance their own work and this field as a whole.
