Get Involved

We welcome your conversation in this project!

PEST (Public Engagement of Science and Technology) is a scientific paradigm with the knowledge that the public knows best, so why not listen to their contributions. When the public is brought into the development of research questions nearer the beginning, an end is achievable and new knowledge is acquired.

Meaning, a platform of trust and confidence is shared and concerns are addressed.

Here's how to get involved in the project!

Download the app through the iStore or Google Play stores: BigFoot Digital Footprint.

Leave a comment in the disqus conversation forum down below.

Show us your work. We want to know what you know within the realm of data security, online privacy, data ethics; you name, we're listening.

This is your chance to participate in Citizen Journalism!

Public participation leads to public policy reform, leads to better technologies built to help citizens. Be in the know and help others stay in the know. Why not help someone gain their own sense of awareness and control?

Thanks for helping!
