A group of scientists from universities across the UK are asking the public to give their experiences, and recordings, of how nature has adapted since the COVID-19 lockdown.
Earth Project-Live is part of the wider Earth Project – conceived in north Wales but with a global outlook and scope. It aims to bring together local and global communities of experts, artists and scientists – combining data, technology and passion to spark the thinking to solve some of the planet’s greatest environmental challenges.
Scientists from universities such as Bangor, Manchester, Queen’s Belfast, Plymouth and Imperial College London are collaborating with schools, indsutry and artisits.
The latest initiative launched focuses on pulling together observations from across the world on how the global pandemic and lockdown has affected nature, air pollution, energy use and traffic.
Looking at reductions in air and noise pollution alongside increases in sightings of wildlife, the project is keen for members of the public to record and submit their own observations.
Earth Project-Live is asking members of the public to feed in their thoughts and observations, including sound and images of the environment during lockdown on to a new on-line database.
