We are looking for volunteers to help spread the message of how important reducing waste and recycling is around your community. We have a very flexible programme and want to work closely with different community groups to create a support network around Peterborough. We are interested in any ideas that you may have but we ideally are looking for the following:
The Engagement Officer Volunteer will have the opportunity to work with PECT to create a variety of engagement resources for the BLUEPRINT project. These will depend on the volunteers’ interests and could include content creation, graphic design, and/or social media marketing.
The Community Lead Volunteer will engage new and existing community groups and volunteer schemes to reduce their waste and inform them of the BLUEPRINT project. They will act as a voice for and could: help run events (in-person or virtually), put up posters in busy areas and/or offer advice to engage their community and wider audiences.
Recycling Champions & Reuse & Repair Enthusiasts
All our BLUEPRINT volunteers will receive support from the PECT team. We hope to create a community of like-minded individuals to spread the importance of waste reduction and recycling and create long-lasting behaviour changes. We want members of the public and businesses that have a flair for repair, upcycling or reuse to help us spread the word, put on workshops, create how-to-videos and share practical skills.
