VOLT Session: Re-Imagining Volunteering for Broader Participation

This free session will start with lunch at 12.30.

Re-Imagining Volunteering for Broader Participation

As involvement in formal volunteering decreases and people seek more informal and flexible ways to contribute to their causes, charities need to adjust to this challenge.

This requires a little disruptive and creative thinking, to reimagine involvement in the charities in new ways that are attractive to differing audiences.

The session will explore the drivers for change and the potential advantages of a more flexible and diverse approach to volunteering and participation.  It will encourage charity leaders to imagine whole new ways for people to contribute to their missions.  We will explore micro-volunteering, coproduction and how to build communities of interest and boost lifetime value in participation.
