SUBJECT: EARTH CHALLENGE 2020 RESEARCH QUESTIONS

 

APRIL 22, 2020 MARKS THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF EARTH DAY. IN RECOGNITION OF THIS MILESTONE EARTH DAY NETWORK, THE WOODROW WILSON INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR SCHOLARS, AND THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE ARE LAUNCHING EARTH CHALLENGE 2020 AS THE WORLD’S LARGEST COORDINATED CITIZEN SCIENCE CAMPAIGN.

 

EARTH CHALLENGE 2020 WILL ENGAGE MILLIONS OF GLOBAL CITIZENS AND WILL AGGREGATE AND COLLECT MORE THAN ONE BILLION DATA POINTS IN AREAS INCLUDING AIR QUALITY, WATER QUALITY, BIODIVERSITY, POLLUTION, AND HUMAN HEALTH.

 

RIGHT NOW, WE ARE INVITING CITIZEN SCIENTISTS AND CONCERNED CITIZENS OF ALL AGES TO PARTICIPATE IN DEFINING THE CRITICAL RESEARCH QUESTIONS THAT WILL GUIDE EARTH CHALLENGE 2020.

 

EARTH CHALLENGE 2020 IS RECRUITING RESEARCH QUESTIONS VIA A SIMPLE WEB FORM (HTTPS://WWW.EARTHDAY.ORG/EARTHCHALLENGE2020). IN ADDITION, WE INVITE QUESTIONS TO BE SUBMITTED VIA TWITTER (@EARTH_CHALLENGE) BY USING THE HASHTAG #EC2020.

 

QUESTIONS SHOULD CENTER AROUND WHAT IS IMPACTFUL TO YOU AND YOUR COMMUNITY

 

RESEARCH QUESTIONS MAY BE SUBMITTED FROM OCTOBER 22, 2018 TO NOVEMBER 22, 2018. SELECTIONS WILL BE MADE BASED ON CRITERIA INCLUDING LEVEL OF GLOBAL INTEREST, GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSITY, GLOBAL IMPACT, PARTNERSHIPS, AND FEASIBILITY.

 

EARTH CHALLENGE 2020 HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE THE LARGEST COORDINATED CITIZEN SCIENCE PROJECT EVER ATTEMPTED ON EARTH.
