People learning about nature

TCV's Scotland Counts project gives individuals and communities in Scotland the opportunity to develop skills and confidence to understand their local environment through Citizen Science. This project is supported by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), Scottish Government, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) and Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS).

In partnership with OPAL (Open Air Laboratory) we have created this ‘Citizen Science in Communities’ film showcasing two community groups – Friends of the River Kelvin and Space to Grow.

Our film illustrates Co-creation and Community Based Environmental Monitoring (CBEM) approach and highlights each community groups learning journey to becoming Citizen Scientists.

This film compliments the Co-creation and Community Based Environmental Monitoring Citizen Science Pilot Projects and the shorter version Top Tips for Co-creation and CBEM Citizen Science Projects.
