The LICCI project loves the idea of using the distributed efforts and public participation in science approaches both to collect Local Indicators on Climate Change Impacts and to empower the communities with which the project will work. In order to further explore the challenges and opportunities we will face, LICCI team member Petra Benyei travelled to Paris to attend the “Empowering civil society through participatory investigation?” European Round Table Workshop organized in collaboration by European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) within the H2020 project Doing it Together Science (DITOs), Pour une alliance sciences en société (ALLISS), Institut francilien recherche, innovation, société (IFRIS), Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Sciences Innovations Sociétés (LISIS) and the Living Knowledge Network (LKN). Insights from her participation in this workshop will help the team develop meaningful and sensitive ways of engaging community members and NGO’s to build the LICCI network.
