The event will be held on Monday 23 May, from 10.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. in dual mode (in Aula T, Dip. Icea, Via Francesco Marzolo 9 and online on Zoom platform). The seminar is organised as part of the course “Climate Change and Adaptation in Ecosystems and Society” of the Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering.

The aim of this thematic seminar is to expand knowledge in the area of “bottom-up” weather-climate monitoring using Citizen Science approaches. Specifically, it presents the experience of the MeteoNetwork network, which by involving and activating citizens as ”active sensors” has built the largest community of weather stations spread across Italy.
MeteoNetwork is a non-profit organisation whose aim is to share and disseminate knowledge of weather and climate monitoring according to a technical-scientific approach, sharing data and maps updated in real time. With its Livemap services, models, forum and its collaborations with research organisations, Meteonetwork makes a fundamental contribution to the scientific dissemination of meteorology and climatology
