Abstract Uncomfortable outdoor environments impact the liveability of cities and urban economy. This paper discusses the experimental protocols developed as part of a citizen science project on improving urban microclimates. The term citizen science broadly describes public engagement in scientific research in collaboration with professional scientists. This citizen science project aims to engage communities across Australia in the measurement of urban microclimates thereby educating citizens and empowering them in adopting various mitigation actions. The design of instrumentation for monitoring microclimates across various proposed urban themes is discussed. In addition, learning experiences from trialing the protocols through a pilot measurement is also presented in this paper.
