Since July 2018, 97 young scientists from the project Urban Algae measure the ecological status of urban ponds in Europe, based on their primary producers like algae and aquatic plants, their diversity and water chemistry. Now they want to link the ecological status to the societal perception of different ecosystem services provided by urban ponds: The online survey with images of different ponds will help to assess how people perceive and value ponds with different ecological statuses.

Support the project and participate in the survey by 30th September 2019!

The survey takes 20-25 minutes to complete, is anonymous and for participants from 14 years. It is available in English, German, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, Hungarian, Italian, Macedonian, Polish, Romanian, Spanish and Swedish.
