Sorgenia, leading player in the energy sector, has embarked on a Learning Challenge, a groundbreaking initiative in collaboration with OutBe.
The “Sorgenia Citizen Science Challenge,” launched in April 2023. It is a testament to environmental commitment, engaging over 300,000 Greeners—Sorgenia’s community of employees and clients dedicated to living sustainably.
This Challenge involved participants in terrestrial and marine monitoring activities, contributing valuable data to scientific research.
The Sorgenia Citizen Science Challenge Unveiled
The challenge lasted five months and comprised two phases that call upon Greeners to engage in nature monitoring activities. During the spring, the focus has been on biodiversity research through outdoor sports on land. In the summer, the emphasis shifted to observing marine flora and fauna.
Sorgenia’s Learning Challenge: how does it work?
OutBe’s Learning Challenge goes beyond traditional training, equipping individuals to easily engage in environmental monitoring. Indeed, OutBe provides all the learning material needed to turn an ordinary person into an extraordinary citizen scientist.
What does it mean? That anyone, after OutBe’s training, becomes able to do easy environmental monitoring. During a learning challenge, the training is easily done through OutBe’s learning platform, through video pills, and fun anecdotes.
Then, participants are ready to take part in the challenge. With regards to biodiversity, they can easily contribute to scientific research by uploading photos and recordings of different species on a dedicated page on iNaturalist.
The Sorgenia Citizen Science Challenge recognizes the urgent need to address biodiversity loss, a consequence of climate change, and empowers individuals to provide valuable information to the scientific community.
OutBe helps proactive companies like Sorgenia to identify a planetary issue. It can range from climate change, biodiversity loss to plastic pollution. And gives the instruments to the stakeholders involved to contribute and be part of the solution!
