PBE has reached an important milestone - 50 completed projects in 5 years! Our project with the Mo Farah Foundation saw economist volunteer Tom Aldred advise the foundation on the data collection needed to understand the impact of their Motivate Hounslow project, which encourages local young people aged 14-25 to take up, and keep up, sport and physical activity.
To mark this achievement we have set ourselves a '50 in 5' challenge over the next 50 days to:
- Release 50 important lessons we have learnt in 5 years of PBE
- Post once a day on Twitter for the next 50 days (#PBE50in5)
- Attract 50 new Twitter followers
- Recruit 50 new volunteers
- Secure 50 donations
We are asking our supporters to share our tweets, to encourage friends and colleagues to sign up as volunteers, and to support us donors, so that we can do more to help charities and provide opportunities for economists.
Importantly, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our volunteers and supporters for making our work over the last five years possible. We hope the next five will be as successful.
