Public Lab functions as a learning, living network of people who collaborate to make environmental research accessible and affordable.

No finite amount of people could tackle a project this big--open source collaboration provides a way of working and making that enables everyone to grow their own capacity to act.nThis presentation will be given by a Public Lab Director.
