It was a full immersion in citizen science projects at the 4° Encontro Nacional de Ciência Cidadã. One of them was our project “ECHO – Engaging citizens in soil science: the road to healthier soils”.
The 4th National Citizen Science Meeting (ENCC2023) took place in Coimbra, Portugal on the 27th and 28th of November 2023.
