YYC'S YOUNG CITIZEN SCIENTISTS
There is a growing demand for active, experiential learning that can fill the gap between existing citizen science projects and Calgary youth who need information, resources and support to join this worldwide movement. Green Calgary's YYC's Young Citizen Science initiative will empower Calgary youth living in an urban environment to develop scientific research skills and apply them to observe the changes that are taking place in natural processes and local habitats. Calgary students who participate in our program will develop the skills and motivation to join the citizen science movement from an early age and make scientifically sound contributions to track and conserve the ecosystems that sustain life in our city. Their goal is to empower over 120 youth Calgary to become citizen scientists and conservationists who will make meaningful contributions to environmental science now and into the future.
