"Beyond the screen: the power and beauty of 'bottom-up' citizen science projects" with Prof Muki Haklay

30 May 2014

To understand this, we can look at the societal and technological changes that led to this proliferation, and then explore the challenges, risks and opportunities that this approach present.
