Citizen Science: KLND Radio Show

February 23, 2024 | 32 min

Harnessing the power of citizen science, our project aims to build a mobile application tailored to the specific needs and aspirations of the Standing Rock Native Nation, located in the North and South Dakotas, along with assisting to improve NASA JPL’s accuracy and quality of data. Integrating traditional and cultural knowledge with scientific data and research from NASA and EPA, the app will focus on themes of sustainability, human rights, and social justice. By empowering community members to actively collect data and share knowledge, the platform encourages participation and informed decision-making. Beyond fostering engagement and promoting sustainable living, the app ultimately seeks to revitalize social and cultural identities within the Standing Rock communities, serving as a model for citizen-driven solutions.
