Mapping the socio-demographics of volunteers through The Conservation Volunteers: Realising the Wider Potential

Conservation Volunteers

The project assesses the potential for furthering the development of The conservation Volunteer’s on-line Management Information System (MIS) as a sector-wide tool for tracking and analysing volunteer’s socio-demographics, skills development, wellbeing and pro-environmental behaviour. The aim is to test the applicability of organisation’s MIS database when linked to open source datasets in order to assess whether this quick and easy green impact method can be used as an effective delivery model for other Third sector organisations.

Funding: This project is funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
