Citizen Science Strategy 2030 for Germany
The future of Citizen Science
On April 29, 2022, the Citizen Science Strategy 2030 for Germany was officially launched and a number of current projects were presented to the public at a Citizen Science Festival. The strategy addresses the greatest challenges and potentials of Citizen Science over the next ten years. It contains 94 concrete recommendations for action to further develop citizen science in Germany and anchor it permanently in science, society and politics. The Citizen Science Strategy 2030 Germany was developed in a two-year participatory process with more than 200 stakeholders from 136 organizations. The process was largely funded by the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
