The main goal of this project is to develop and validate a new methodology that will broaden the basis on which traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) is documented, shared and protected while engaging citizens by:
CONECTe holds the potential to document, share and protect TEK in an innovative way. As part of the project, we evaluate the need, impact, process and outcomes derived from the use of this tool. Results of this project may share light in the strengths and caveats of these type of methodologies (i.e. citizen science and digital commons) for complementing previous TEK conservation efforts (IECTB).
