To explore is human. National Geographic has been engaging a global community and inspiring millions of people to explore, observe, understand and analyze the world around us.
In this year-end gathering, AVPN has invited our member, National Geographic, to share its unique Citizen Explorer Lab and citizen science efforts in Asia.
Citizen Explorer Lab engages, inspires and empowers a new generation of explorers, scientists and change makers through participatory science and open innovation to help us understand the patterns, status and trends of species, ecosystems, people and cultures. To move the initiative forward in Asia, National Geographic is bringing together key citizen science, influencers, explorers, practitioners, philanthropists and scientists in the region to co-define strategies. We are excited to have the group joining us at the gathering and invite guest speakers to share with us their perspectives on citizen science.
Join us for this unique event with great speakers, drinks, and purposeful networking!
