Within NETLAKE, Working Group 3 is developing a citizen science initiative focused on lakes. The Working Group aims to bridge the gap between scientists and citizens by designing and implementing basic limnological measurements of lakes together with local citizens. This Training School was a follow up to the NETLAKE Citizen Science Workshop 2015 in Belgrade, Serbia. In that workshop, scientists and citizen scientists together set up a limnological protocol which was tested during 2015 in six lakes in the Netherlands and Italy.
