we are OTTERS

The OTTERS Project aims to promote societal transformation for marine and freshwater stewardship through scaling up citizen science.
OTTERS will support the coordination of EU citizen science initiatives focused on marine and freshwater, aiming to:

  • Accelerate the creation and adoption of technical, legal, and ethical standards for citizen science protocols and methods.
  • Examine the effectiveness of citizen science in societal transformation towards sustainable aquatic ecosystem stewardship.
  • Pilot cross-community, watershed-based Spring-to-Sea Stewardship Campaigns.
