The scientific project CREDO (Cosmic Ray Extremely Distributed Observatory) it is an extremely fast growing research project based almost entirely on citizen science. It is to have a global reach and involve all people regardless of age, gender and education. The combination of serious scientific goals and the method of public participation by all stakeholders is innovative and has proven to be extremely effective in blurring the differences between scientists and the rest of society. These differences were very visible for decades, even at the level of the language used by scientists, which was very incomprehensible to others. Certainly, such synergy - science and society is a real future for many fields of science and is already beginning to bear very good scientific and social fruit. It is very well visible on the example of the CREDO project.

The planned scope of CREDO's operation is important - global, i.e. around the world. This makes CREDO a precursor in such broad activities and of such nature. In shaping its activities, CREDO needs, however, in addition to substantive and organizational support, also examples from other scientists and non-scientists in the field of citizen science - such as, for example, at the Engaging Citizen Science conference, where such people from many areas of life meet and share their experiences. One can see that the activity within citizen science is already well defined and becoming commonplace.
