Environmental Ambassadors for Sustainable Development (Environmental Ambassadors, EASD) is a non-for-profit professional association focusing work on education, as well as the research and science (professional and participant science / citizen science) promotion, in the areas of sustainable development and environment/climate change, through the consultancy, expertise, innovation, capacity building, evidence-based advocacy, promotion of natural and culture values, global equality and environmental/climate justice.
One of the thematic pillars of work is science promotion, including both the professional science and citizens science as an opportunity for greater public engagement in science. In projects/activities, when feasible, we include citizens as contributors and collaborators with a meaningful role (contributing to scientific evidence to address local, national and regional/international issues and potentially to influence policy).
Participant science / Citizen science and science promotion
