Regional events at C*Sci 2022 provided opportunities for building connection and exploring big ideas close to home.
Events included watch parties like this one at the University of Nebraska:
Watch parties streaming Dr. Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta’s keynote address, “Cultivating Science, Justice, and Action, were held in 10 locations across North America as part of C*Sci 2022.
Social and networking events like this one at the Woodland Park Zoo in Washington provided a fun opportunity for people to meet in person from across a region. This event was organized by the Pacific North West Citizen Science organizers who have been coordinating regional conferences for Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
Organizers in Texas included a BioBlitz as part of their watch party and networking event that brought together project leaders from 12 projects across the state for a rare in person meet-up. See Story Map about their event here.
We appreciate all of the unique ways these groups brought C*Sci 2022 to their communities and look forward to supporting more CSA regional events in the future.
