From October to December 2021, the winners of INGSA-Asia’s Grassroots Science Advice Promotion Awards 2021 have successfully organized 3 Grassroots Workshops in India and Indonesia, delving into the topics of cultivating livelihood through sustainable farming, disaster planning and management, as well as participatory science advice in policymaking through open science.

We hope to facilitate more of such initiatives in the region in the future to foster the culture of science advice.
