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.
