Every day, around 2.5 million m² of land in Europe are being built upon. These developments create a negative cost for the environment such as increased risk of flooding and loss of food security. The International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA) has developed an App called ‘FotoQuest Go’. With ‘FotoQuest Go’ you become a ‘citizen scientist’, documenting the environmental changes and helping researchers around the world to measure and evaluate environmental changes. In MAGIC, this data will help us to validate the marginal land maps that we are producing by having the most up to date information of what is actually growing in the field. You will find all further details by watching the video!
