Motivation for Participating in Volunteer Activities

Motivation for Participating in Volunteer Activities: Hooking Citizens into Water Quality Monitoring

In Finland, the gathering of information about water systems has been heavily dependent on public organizations. However, decreasing resources have emphasized a need to find new cost effective ways to produce information. The monitoring strategy of the Ministry of the Environment in Finland has defined strategic targets for the gathering, storage and utilization of environmental data up to the year 2020. In this strategy the voluntary work of citizens is raised as one potential resource in supplementing the official water quality monitoring. At the moment, the involvement of citizens is still in its infancy. An urgent need is highlighted for creating a deeper understanding of citizens' motives in participating in voluntary pro-environmental activities. An online survey was used for generating new understanding why people participate in water quality monitoring activities, what motivates them, what kind of experiences people have from the current activities, and what kind of barriers they face.
