We introduce the concept of Citizen Science: the active involvement of interested citizens in the various disciplines of space weather. This meeting aims to support existing projects and new proposals. Hence, special attention is paid to the development of citizen science initiatives, the implementation of these initiatives and the evaluation of feasibility/success. Matters related to the metadata and technology development required to support Citizen Science for Space Weather will also be discussed.
