Social media and crowdsourcing in disasters
March 2022: Do you work with social media and crowdsourcing in the field of civil security? Does your municipality communicate with citizens via social media? The curators of the EU-based research project LINKS are interested to know about your experiences and encourage your participation in this survey
The aim of this survey is to gain insights into the use and potentials of social media and crowdsourcing by organisations that are engaged during disasters, such as public authorities, civil protection organisations, NGOs and others.
The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and is available until April 11, 2022. Project LINKS is investigating specific cases and stakeholders in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Denmark so the survey has been made available in German, Italian, Dutch and Danish in addition to English.
The answers will help to develop an open online platform, the LINKS Community Centre, where important information and guidance about social media and crowdsourcing in disasters will be gathered and discussed by an active community. The LINKS Community Centre is under active development and is constantly evolving.
The survey is conducted in the context of the EU-project LINKS. LINKS is funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 883490. The overall aim of the LINKS project is to strengthen links between technologies and society for improved European disaster resilience, by producing sustainable, advanced learning on the use of social media and crowdsourcing in disasters.
