Date & Time

The talk will begin by celebrating Scotland’s natural assets, then question whether all that has happened in recent times is beneficial and whether we would now have acted differently. Key inherited and current challenges will be addressed, including industrialisation of land use and ignorance of natural processes, lack of space for nature and species debates. Solutions will be set out demanding more integrated ways of planning future land use, developing a package of practical mechanisms and addressing polarisation of attitudes. 

This joint lecture is organised by the Scottish Consortium for Rural Research (SCRR) and Royal Society of Edinburgh.Book a place at this event using the link below and join us in the audience. We think this lecture will be very insightful and set out some interesting challenges.
