Build connections and explore big ideas

This event convenes conversations across disciplines, roles, and perspectives. Together, we seek and share the traditional and innovative practices that lead to powerful partnerships for discovery, learning, and action.

Interactive posters will be available on the virtual event site for the duration of the event and live sessions with presenters will offer opportunities for face-to-face conversations with innovators and thought leaders in this field.

Live sessions with lightning talks and panel discussions with poster presenters on a cross-cutting topic relevant to several posters.
Engaging and/or collaborative sessions for building skills, advancing efforts, seeking solutions, and other ways to leverage inspiration for impact.

Emerging partnerships bring new dimensions to our 2024 event.

  • Biodiversity strand – with support from Florida State University and the iDigBio program, this event will feature highlights of participatory science practices for biodiversity data partnerships and decision making. 
  • Working in partnership with the Ibero-American Network of Participatory Science (RICAP), a Biodiversity without Boundaries portion of this event will facilitate North-South exchange of practices (submissions and reviewers will be invited in both English and Spanish – stay tuned for the possibility of Portuguese).

Partner with us!

There is still time to partner to convene a special strand. If you are interested in supporting attention to a topical area of practice, contact us for options.
