What is citizen science?

Citizen science is the involvement of the public in scientific research. Around the world, thousands of citizen science projects and initiatives provide the opportunity for everyone — educators and students, experts and amateurs, global citizens and community leaders — to get involved in collecting, sharing, and acting on data around issues they care about. Citizen science is a tool for global scientific empowerment, education, and action.
