The fringe events are an important part of the Scottish Rural Parliament. This is an opportunity for people and organisations to raise their own issues and find people who have similar experiences and hopefully find solutions and constructive ways forward.
Participants and exhibitors at the Scottish Rural Parliament can host a fringe workshop, on any topic relevant to rural Scotland, at the Rural Parliament this year.
We are not alone. By working together we can change things.
Fringe workshops will be taking place on Wednesday afternoon and usually last 1 hour. It is free to host and to attend a fringe workshop if you are a participant or exhibitor. You can tell us your idea when you register to attend the Rural Parliament, or use this link to book a fringe event: book here
Opportunities to exchange ideas with others and make new contacts.
Fringe events in 2016 included:
- Women and the ditribution of land
- Support to engage programme (STEP)
- The secret of seaweed in the kitchen
- Scripts on land reform, Scotland
- Dare to dream
- Want good food available locally for all?
- Rural churches – here to listen; here to care
- Rural wisdom – Making our rural communities work better for older people
- An introduction to participatory budgeting
We can help people with an idea for a fringe workshop connect with others who may have a similar idea, but do not control the content or quality of fringe workshops – that’s up to you!
