Setting the Stage
This PDF includes a synthesis of presentations and discussions that took place at the Engaging and Learning for Conservation Workshop on Public Participation in Scientific Research, held at the American Museum of Natural History on April 7 & 8, 2011. In a series of introductory presentations, participants are offered an overview of workshop goals and session formats, as well as opening thoughts on public participation in scientific research, illustrated by brief presentations of four project case studies. Co-PI Rick Bonney provides an overview of the state of the field, including early work on citizen science and identification of collaborative, contributory, and cocreated models. Co-PI Judy Braus introduces the BETA version of Tools of Engagement, a planning tool for integrating people into conservation planning.
