Delivered as part of SEFARI Fellowship with NatureScot and SEPA, this report sets out a draft vision for digital social innovations in environmental monitoring to address local to global scale environmental challenges and support a green recovery. Building on existing initiatives e.g. Scotland’s Environment Web (SEWeb) and linking with UNEP’s. This requires harnessing shared understanding and common purpose across Scotland’s monitoring communities to enable people to work together, often with the help of technology, to mobilise a wider range of information, ideas, and insights to address local to global scale environmental challenges.This draft vision is for data-information-knowledge, based on environmental monitoring data flows, to be findable and accessible to whoever needs it, interoperable with existing and new applications and workflows/data pipelines, and that it is widely reused from individual to national level decision making to improve the climate change, biodiversity loss, and unsustainable use of natural resources challenge situations as part of a green technology-led recovery. The vision could be delivered through four linked missions (and recommended actions), one cross-cutting integrative mission and three missions targeted on improving climate change, biodiversity loss, and unsustainable use of natural resources challenge situations.
