Active Learning – part of a global citizen science project to capture changing nature

Active Learning has partnered with CoastSnap, to bring you the opportunity to collaborate in a global citizen science project that tracks the changing environments through time.

Active Learning relies on your repeat photos to track how the environment is changing over time due to processes such as storms, human activities, rising sea levels, and other factors. By getting involved you can really make a difference, with your photos being transformed into valuable data; used by scientists to understand and forecast the impacts of climate change on different environments in the coming decades.

Active Learning combines science, education and nature, all whilst improving your health and wellbeing through getting outside and being active.
