Session: Citizen science uptake in official data and decision ecosystems – establishing a new common practice

In recent years citizen science has become widely recognised for its potential beyond science, e.g., to provide data to official assessment and accounting systems, helping to close spatial and temporal data gaps, or to provide methods to enhance public participation in the scientific and policy discourse, amongst others. Lighthouse projects across the globe have demonstrated that citizen science data can serve SDG monitoring (Ghana), outweigh official data sources for official air quality reporting (Flanders) or lead to urban re-design of public spaces to reduce noise pollution (Barcelona). At the same time, citizen science practices are debated for their legitimacy, in a narrow sense related to data quality, in a wider sense related to their potential of calling existing accountability systems and power structures into question. This session aims at reflecting current developments by bringing practitioners together to enhance knowledge exchange and to jointly sketch trends and key leverage points towards facilitating the uptake of citizen science data and practice in authoritative data flows and policy making
