    • Partnership Coordinators

    • Volunteer Coordinators

    • And others involved this kind of partnering

    • 17 grew to a total of 56 contacts

Selected case studies l.jpg
Selected Case Studies

We selected the potential case studies

We re-interviewed the contacts and worked with them to create a case study story ready for publication

These are the selected case studies

Writing the case studies l.jpg
Writing the Case Studies

We developed a template of information required on each case study

We interviewed each selected contact

We wrote the case study and had each interviewed contact review, comment and have final say on the story. We ensured their consent and approval before publication

Here is an example of one of the stories

Publishing the story l.jpg
Publishing the Story

We plan on publishing the stories on this page in association with a partnership the NPO has with the Forest Foundation
