  • understand how technological shifts are changing consumer and volunteer expectations
  • work with some of the new, ‘brain-friendly’ ways to engage volunteers
  • recognise the impact of increasing voluntourism and how it may affect volunteering back home
  • understand how the United Nation’s new Sustainable Development Goals provide opportunities to strengthen links between national and international volunteering.
