has long championed the wider impacts of conservation volunteering, for
example linking to community development, regeneration and more
while it is relatively straight forward to record the conservation
output of what a volunteer achieves in terms of objective results such
as the number of trees planted, it is much harder to
measure other benefits to people and communities such as improvements in
environmental behaviours, health and wellbeing.
The conference aims to fill this gap of knowledge and launch an independently commissioned report from Resources for Change
to present the findings from TCV's Green Impacts project on the impacts
of volunteering on pro-environmental behaviours, community resilience,
and TCV’s work to monitor health, wellbeing and the wider social impacts
This exciting event will be running in parallel with a large volunteering impact event in the park.
