The project Sensing for Justice - researching the potential of citizen science in environmental litigation and mediation - convened a dialogue roundtable at the Engaging Citizen Science Conference 2022. During the roundtable, participants were invited to reflect along three main lines: (I) how to provide social and legal support to less structured and more spontaneous citizen science initiatives, here framed as ‘reactive’; (II) what type of legal/institutional recognition is desirable for these more ‘reactive’ forms of citizen science; (III) which novel communication approaches - for example, visuals and story-telling - can enable us to enter in dialogue with these initiatives. After these prompts, we asked the participants to react with spoken interventions and drawings. Together, we could draft a ‘manifesto’ voicing the need of reactive environmental citizen science and sketching avenues to ensure that the practice can flourish and have impact.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
