Eleanor Marwood
I am excited to standing to be Volunteering Officer because I feel that my love for nature in combination with my previous experiences organising volunteering events mean I could hopefully contribute a lot to the society. I have 5 years experience volunteering helping to teach children to ride horses for the Riding for the Disabled Association and have taken part in multiple wildlife conservation projects overseas. I am very comfortable organising volunteering events as I was Volunteering Champion for my team where I used to work, which meant that I liaised with local charities and organised volunteering days for my colleagues at the local Peace Hospice. I am currently a Volunteering Project leader for Healthy Planet UCL, in which we have been organising sessions which we hope to take into schools when lockdown lifts to teach children about intersections between their health and the environment. My main priorities if I was elected would involve two approaches. Social distancing allowing, I would love to get the society involved in some hands on environmental volunteering around London including river clean ups and litter picking in the parks, as we are all passionate about preserving natural spaces in the city for wildlife. As the last year has shown us the importance of a COVID friendly backup plan, one of my other objectives would be organise regular online activities for the society and to keep members up to date with other online opportunities to volunteer to help nature.

I am nominating myself for the role of volunteering officer because I want to get more people involved in the conservation of our nature. There are lots of opportunities in and around London to help wildlife and, as volunteering officer, I want to help make an inclusive environment in which people would want to take part and make a difference. Nature & Conservation society is a wonderful society with people who have an inspiring drive to protect nature. I would like to help increase the society’s impact, and I think getting more people involved in conservation efforts is a great way to achieve this.
