In conversation with 2020 CHASS Prize Winner Robyn Gulliver

Project Information:

The Campaign Explorer database and citizen science project is a Australia’s first ever large scale database of environmental collective action, designed to help activists and researchers design and implement effective grassroots activism to address our environmental challenges. The database includes over 2,800 environmental groups, 1000 environmental campaigns and 195 climate change campaign outcomes. The citizen science platform offers a range of tasks and projects for volunteers to contribute and build the environmental activism database. To date, the data has informed a range of academic papers and monographs, as well as diverse outputs such as ArcGIS storymaps, Twitter stories and activist reports. This project significantly advances our knowledge of environmental collective action processes and outcomes, while helping activists, policy makers and researchers work together to create rapid solutions to our environmental crisis.
