4.3 Legacy

Plan the legacy of your project

Your project is coming to an end but you wish its results to last over time.

The legacies of a project can be varied and of different natures. Good examples of legacies are sharing resources to enable other groups of citizens to replicate the experiment, instilling a narrative of sustainability and empowerment among the group of participants, or building policy recommendations.

The goal of this phase is to identify what kind of legacy you want to leave and plan actions to achieve this. Despite it being presented as the last phase of a citizen science project, it is worth keeping in mind that you need to start this reflection from the beginning of your project and work towards reaching this goal in each of the actions developed in the previous phases.
