in fragile contexts

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you to inform you about a possibility for collaboration.
We are currently working on a journal paper that might be of interest to a
lot of members of your participatory mapping society. Therefore I would
like to request if you could circulate the below message to participants of
your community:

We are getting in touch to let you know about a new research opportunity
that you might be interested in getting involved in. The outcome will be a
journal paper for the Journal of Citizen Science Theory and Practice. For
your contributions, we will offer you co-authorship. If this sounds
interesting, keep reading below for some background information and ways
you can be involved!During the ECSA 2020 Conference, the Extreme Citizen
Science group at UCL led a session on the topic of Citizen Science in
‘Fragile Contexts and with Indigenous Communities’ together with Petra
Benyei from ICTA-UAB; Rick Hall from Ignite!; and Dimitris Argyriou, Nerea
Turreira Garcia and Ida Theilade from the University of Copenhagen. You can
watch the whole session here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZxzdbg9yKQ&feature=youtu.beWe identified
some very interesting common lessons learned across all four projects which
we shared during our presentation but that was only the beginning! With the
interest, we got from the conference’s audience and mainly due to our
passion for our work in this particular field of citizen science research,
we decided to pursue this work a bit further and explore citizen science in
‘fragile contexts’ in more depth.Following a similar methodological
approach with that of Anokwa et al 2019 (
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jsherwan/pubs/stories-itid09.pdf) we designed a
questionnaire (https://
drive.google.com/file/d/1FoWuTB_IXT11W7OkrPxBP7puzC1bB9df/view?usp=sharing  )
which we invite people - who work in similar contexts - to answer. From the
data we will collect, we will identify themes which we will discuss in the
paper.All you have to do at the stage is to read the instructions on the
first page of the questionnaire, then fill the questionnaire in and return
to us by the end of October (please return to Petra Benyei at
petra.benyei@gmail.com
petra.benyei@gmail.com
). By doing so you will be included in the list of
the paper’s co-authors.After we analyse the data we will invite everyone
who filled in the questionnaire to a couple of online meetings to discuss
the findings and address any possible gaps. If you have the time to attend
those events would be also great.Please do not hesitate to contact Dr
Artemis Skarlatidou (a.skarlatidou@ucl.ac.uk) if you have any questions.

Dear All,

I was wondering if you can help me with any good literature on using
participatory mapping/PPGIS in  heat stress reduction or in heat related
climate change in general?

Any tips for good/fairly new research articles?

Thanks

Jirka
