Citizen science is scientific research conducted, in whole or in part, by amateur scientists. The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a series of measures to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure the global well-being of human beings. How can we, citizens of the metaverse, become aspiring citizen scientists to help achieve one or more UN SDGs? Can we use new social VR platforms to find collaborators and coordinate citizen science projects? Join Health Systems Chat in Social VR regulars and NOOBs aboard an interstellar biosphere 1000s of years in the future to discuss! Which SDG is (would/might be) your personal passion? Speaking of which, here are the SDGs: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water and Sanitation, Affordable and Clean Energy, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Reduced Inequality, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action, Life Below Water, Life on Land, Peace and Justice Strong Institutions, Partnerships to achieve the Goal!
