  1. Many in the community seem to focus on ‘self’ when it comes to appreciating Heritage experiences, but then lack a connection with a desire to volunteer. Within EDNNR and the wider MTMTE project area there exists countless variety for proactive involvement with your chosen heritage related hobby. Seemingly inspiring ‘viewers to become doers’ as volunteers is a challenge across the MTMTE area.

    Could the uptake of volunteering benefit from marketing informed by data as to why ‘viewers’ stop at that level of involvement. Hence a project of valid market research linked to developing emotional triggers which will aid uptake, and then the focused communication of such trigger generated messages/stimuli. Individual Heritage groups probably lack the research skills / customer psychology / communication psychology, knowledge to generate this key factor within sustaining community involvement.
