Abstract

Citizen science is a relatively young research field. Having ‘discovered’ it in a conference workshop, I thought it might be the answer to solving a problem I had encountered during my PhD studies – how to scale-up efforts to record valuable experiential knowledge. I planned to train citizen scientists to conduct qualitative semi-structured interviews so that they could gather local knowledge of climate change and adaptation strategies in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Quickly, I realised that previous citizen science projects had primarily asked members of the public acting as citizen scientists to contribute to quantitative data sets and rarely had academics attempted to use such individuals as interviewers.
