Based on research conducted over a year and a half, First Steps is the first account of its kind that documents, maps and analyses the rapidly growing field of Citizen Science in ecology in India. Located within the broad academic fields of ‘Science and Technology Studies’ and the ‘Sociology of Knowledge’, it is a 2nd order study that engages with the assumptions, conceptualisations, methods and the institutions that constitute Citizen Science projects in India. It presents important elements of what has happened in recent times through a study of 17 such projects and sets the stage for what might be expected in the years to come.
