Invitation to tender for Communities in Nature programme evaluation

19 November 2014

The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (CGF) working in partnership with Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) invites proposals to conduct an evaluation of its ‘Communities in Nature’ programme which, over the last five years, has aimed to ‘grow the social role’ of (botanic) gardens.

The evaluation will assess impact and outcomes so far and provide recommendations for the Foundation on its approach and for BGCI on development of the work beyond CGF’s support, which will end in 2015. In order to tender for the evaluation please read the Brief for the evaluation

Timetable and costs

A draft report will need to be completed by early March 2015 and the final report by early April 2015. The final report will be launched on 30 April 2015 at an event at the 9th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens in Missouri, USA.
There is a total of £15,000 available for this work including costs, expenses and VAT.
