Microvolunteering with the Volunteering Service: Zooniverse

Online Event

Apply your skills and learning whilst getting a flavour for volunteering. From studying the stars to unveiling the untold stories of criminals, Zooniverse is a platform that brings together volunteering activities for you to access and participate in from the comfort of your sofa. Zooniverse offers you the opportunity to contribute to important research projects across a diverse range of subject areas taking place in many countries around the world.

This activity should help to increase self-confidence and be rewarding whilst allowing a little time out from your day-to-day activities to help you to destress. You may want to contribute to a project that has a direct link to your degree, or this could be the chance to try something completely new. Follow the link below and enjoy investigating the many projects that are available before signing up to one (or many!) and joining in.

We'd love to hear about what projects you get involved with and how you get on! Email us at volunteering@eusa.ed.ac.uk

Time commitment: to allow enough time for exploring and joining in we recommend an hour. Of course, you might find a project that you want to continue contributing towards on a regular basis!
