What is the toolkit?
Hello and Welcome to CoAct project’s Toolkit. The Toolkit is an open resource that provides practical and technical information on the citizen social science (CSS) methods that CoAct co-researchers applied in their projects. The CoAct Toolkit allows for the easy adoption of the CSS approach by civil society organisations, public bodies, and social innovators. The toolkit presents a diverse variety of CSS tools which you can browse following CoAct‘s research steps and topics. You can also use the filter function to learn directly about the tools and methods that are related to your particular interest and resources. In the Toolkit pages, we also present the CoAct Research Cycle, explain some CSS key points, and showcase our co-researcher interviews which may, too, help you design and conduct your own social-action project on topics that matter to you and your community. With this Toolkit, we aim to provide academic and non-academic researchers, community partners, and citizen initiatives with tools and methods to develop their local CSS projects and agendas. Our mission is to present an accessible and valuable framework to practice community-based research and collective action for citizens.
