Volunteer Stories in Botanic Gardens as SDG Metrics

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Sponsored by ISR and organised by SustainNET this event looks at Nick’s latest research with Botanic Garden partners across England, Scotland and Wales which explores collective voices of garden volunteers and the power of volunteering and gardens. This project is creating resources and a means to facilitate lobbying, networking and of course teaching, learning, academic use and publication regarding SDGs, and related metrics with a focus on transformative health and wellbeing outcomes of volunteering in gardens, and much more.

SustainNET was established in February 2020 as a network of individuals based at Edge Hill University who are passionate about sustainability.
