Sharing Across Scales in Citizen Science

Citizen science and crowdsourcing are at an exciting time, growing in new directions from the smallest local projects to those that stretch globally and beyond. Our projects can vary in scope and scale, and are conducted at all levels of society: local, regional, national, and global. Bringing together leaders from government, academia, NGOs, and the private sector, this event will probe questions including: How do projects and practices successfully widen their scope or transfer to new locations?  How do projects at different scales interact and share resources?
