The Citizens Observatory Facebook group is a non-partisan outlet for promoting any CO related activity. It is open to SMEs that may want to promote new technologies, as well as projects or other initiatives that have a CO related component.
Initially created to support a wider communication and mutual support within the five “Citizens Observatories” Projects funded by the European FP7 for Research, “Developing community-based environmental monitoring and information systems using innovative and novel earth observation applications”, the CO Group have been attracting attention from the wider CO community, with new members joining daily.
Its message is simple: The CO group acts as a focal point for the promotion of ‘Citizens’ Observatories worldwide and is an essential tool to better improving our environment.
And, as the ranks grow and people start to use the group as a resource for promoting their project or business, we anticipate a wider audience will start to rely on it for learning about what a Citizen Observatory is, and what it can do for them. The lessons we learn, the products and services we develop and the knowledge we generate can all be channeled through the group, providing a one stop shop for all things CO related. https://www.
