Brief for consultant to diversify citizen science initiatives in the Chilterns

  • Closing date: 28 May 2024

Chalk, Cherries and Chairs (CCC) is an ambitious Landscape Partnership Scheme that aims to connect local people to the wildlife and cultural heritage of the Central Chilterns. It operates under three themes – wildlife, heritage and people. A whole host of interweaving projects fall under these three themes, designed with the Chilterns’ landscape in mind and sharing common threads, such as volunteering, learning and digital media. CCC is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with match funding from a range of sources including the HS2 Community & Engagement Fund and hosted by the Chilterns National Landscape. The scheme comes to an end in November 2024.

Work to be delivered:

  1. Mapping of citizen science programmes in the Chilterns and nationally.
  2. Diversifying citizen science and addressing the key barriers.
  3. Review of the Chilterns National Landscape’s current citizen science volunteering.
  4. Review and analysis.
