What is Community Science?

Community Science is “the practice of public participation and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge.” When someone becomes a community scientist, they not only develop their own scientific expertise but they also contribute to a growing understanding of our world. Community scientists participate in monitoring, data collection, and other scientific processes alongside scientists and researches to broaden data and collect more data than would otherwise be possible.

You can become a community scientist by volunteering with our Vancouver Water Monitoring Program, reporting pollution concerns, and submitting photos of your favourite beaches to track their condition over time.
