Live Project Evaluation: Online Survey

University College Cork (UCC) has commissioned Wavehill to undertake an evaluation of the Live Project. LIVE is a collaboration between Welsh and Irish community organisations, academic departments and local governments. LIVE aims to enable coastal communities (Llŷn and Iveragh) to promote their natural and cultural assets, creating opportunities for sustainable tourism, especially outside of the traditional peak tourist seasons. ​ As part of its evaluation, a survey will be conducted with stakeholders. ​ UCC is the data controller for the research. However, Wavehill will delete any personal data provided during the survey, before it is shared with UCC. ​ The information collected during the project will be included in a report for UCC, who may wish to publish. ​ Your Participation in this research is completely voluntary.
