What will emergency volunteering look like in 2030?
What is emergency volunteering going to look like in 2030? How (and by whom) is it going to be organised?
How can the emergency management sector best enable the value of volunteering for communities - before, during and after an emergency - into the future?
Our new project Enabling sustainable emergency volunteering will help answer these questions. Researchers Dr Blythe McLennan and Dr Tarn Kruger at RMIT are currently completing an environmental scan, which will look at understanding how the emergency management sector is thinking about and planning for the future of volunteering today.
The research team would like to hear about plans, projects and programs across the emergency management sector that are responding to changes in the way people volunteer. Representatives of emergency management organisations, including NGOs and local government, are invited to contact Dr McLennan or Dr Kruger to share information about initiatives in their organisation, region, division, group, unit or brigade so they can be included in the environmental scan. Results will be shared later in the year.
