The goal of this project is to design a digital platform for promoting and visualizing citizen science projects that address environmental, social, and economic problems in Venice. We identified user types and user journeys, analyzed features in existing platforms, and used the Iterative Design Process to refine our design. We finished with recommendations for design improvements and platform development. We hope our project will contribute to future citizen science efforts in Venice and its Lagoon.
