dc.description.abstractThroughout the years, citizen science and its tools have been gaining crucial importance in improving the quality of life. Public participation in science and government debates about local issues and need for platform’s support will be increasing. When it comes to address civic problems, today’s vogue word is ‘resilience’. As a keyword ‘resilience’ seems addressing problems of cities, it could also be a weakness. Resilience reverses a city’s ability to endure against to emergency, to continue its main duty despite the dispiriting challenges. Under those challenges and infrastructural changes, citizens and rural migrants should be in the process. Accordingly, resilience should compose supplemental paradigm of socio-economic challenges. Since then, citizens have been trying to debate, discuss and consider solutions about their city. Citizen science projects have been successful so far in progressing scientific knowledge and improvements from citizen scientists provide a big quantity of data around the world. Citizen science is a rapidly growing field with expanding validity. It includes strengthening scientific research by engaging by range of topics and data sources. Citizen science can enlarge the stakeholder participation and introduce new viewpoints as well as new cooperation. Many projects are coming up with cutting-edge areas of science as well. At this point, these projects become to address an immediate problem’s or research question’s answer while also building capacity or communities to participate in science and shape policy decision making and implementation in long run. This paper proposes to review citizen science’s background, engagement types, selected citizen science projects for motivating people to participate in improving our society and understand the benefits of the citizen science projects. The research approach is exploratory and user centered design methods were applied. As a result, achieving a sustainable society in integrated resilient city and inclusive urban design would be possible if people’s awareness of how they participate in solving problems is increased. Citizen science cases use digital participation tools consequently people can participate in scientific activities with little effort anytime within the frame of citizen science projects in their environmenten_US
