Meritxell Turó


As a biologist and journalist deeply committed to the intersection of environmental sustainability and participatory communication, I bring a multifaceted background to the EMBIMOS research group. My expertise lies at the confluence of ecological science and effective public engagement, underscored by a successful track record in the Third Sector. Through my work with NGOs and foundations, I have championed social action, sports, and women's rights, always to foster a more just, caring, and environmentally sustainable society. 

Professional Expertise: 

  • Science Communication: Specialized in translating complex scientific concepts into accessible language, facilitating broader understanding and engagement in environmental and sustainability issues.
  • Digital Outreach: Expert in leveraging digital platforms to amplify the reach of participatory information systems, utilising ASO, SEO, PPC, and social media strategies to engage diverse audiences.
  • Community Engagement: Experienced in harnessing the power of storytelling and digital content to foster community involvement in science, contributing to the growth of citizen science networks. 
  • Interdisciplinary Collaboration: Adept at working within interdisciplinary teams, combining insights from biology, environmental engineering, and communication to advance the goals of participatory information systems for sustainability. 
  • Project Leadership: Demonstrated capability in leading initiatives that bridge the gap between science and society, particularly emphasising environmental sustainability and participatory decision-making processes. 

My commitment to environmental stewardship and participatory science is evident in my engagement with regional citizen science networks and EU-funded projects such as or ProBleu.schools, where I have played a role in their support and operational success.

Fluent in Spanish, Catalan, French, and English, I am poised to contribute to EMBIMOS's mission of understanding, creating, and implementing participatory information systems that empower decision-making for environmental sustainability. 

I am excited to bring my blend of communication, science, and project management skills to EMBIMOS, aiming to contribute significantly to the group's interdisciplinary efforts in advancing environmental sustainability and citizen science.
