Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) is an Australia-wide organisation which involves the community in practical conservation programs. CVA’s mission is to attract and manage a force of volunteers for the benefit of the environment. CVA will complete in excess of 100,000 volunteer days in the coming 12 months.
CVA has identified opportunities within their current strategy and business model. For example, there exists a growing interest in leveraging CVA capabilities to bring greater benefits to environmental conservation, and developing opportunities to build strategic partnerships with CVA providing management services.
Strategy& began working with CVA in 2005, participating in community service days in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. Activities included helping a local Reef Care group with their ongoing work, Long Reef Headland restoration and sand dune repair near Dee Why, NSW. We additionally took part in the ‘Better Earth Project’ restoring the Australian Garden at the Cranbourne Botanic Gardens, Victoria.
Planned activities for this year include the provision of strategy and business consulting services to support the organisation’s development, and the identification of new ventures. Our staff will also continue with their involvement in community service regeneration projects.
