Open call: Training in participatory biodiversity monitoring
Until August 31, the deadline to register for the Participatory Biodiversity Monitoring Course is open, to be held at the Rio Claro Natural Reserve in Antioquia, Colombia, from October 23 to 28, 2017.
Staff from GBIF participants in Colombia, Argentina, Mexico and Spain will come together for initial in-person instruction about
community-based monitoring. Together, theyâ€™ll explore theory and practice while learning how to design a participatory monitoring plan,
develop shared methodologies for collaborations between scientists and communities, select practices and technologies that ensure
high-quality data and information management and monitor and evaluate the impact of such projects.
