What is the purpose of this study?

Through this survey we want to understand your thoughts on citizen science, even if you've never heard of it before. We’d like to know what would make you want to join us in health and wellbeing citizen science projects. We'd also like to know what would stop you from joining in. We also want to know which areas of health and wellbeing research you think are the most important for us to investigate together.
