The LandSense Citizen Observatory (https://landsense.eu/) connects the domains of citizen science and Earth
Observation to address critical issues in the field of Land use and Land Cover (LULC). As part of the
observatory, several technologies are being developed and deployed across various themes and communities
to illustrate the potential of citizen observatories to tackle environmental monitoring issues. A key success
factor to the LandSense Citizen Observatory is to aggregate key end-users including research organizations,
NGOs, SMEs, data providers, public bodies, and citizens to directly address local and regional LULC topics.
The direct involvement of user communities in the LULC data collection process will generate relevant
information and promote demand-driven policy responses that will hopefully rise horizontal ‘modes of
governance’ (Wehn et al., 2015). As such, LandSense conducted an assessment of user requirements and
barriers (D2.1) and this deliverable continues along this trajectory to further elaborate action plans, strategies
and campaigns for citizen engagement across the demonstration pilots. Specifically, the deliverable
summarizes activities undertaken within Task 2.2 and is organized based on each pilot.
