Land Reform Futures Project

We were delighted to join an in-person meeting with the Land Reform Futures Stakeholder Advisory Group in March. Artemis and Catriona, our National Coordinator and Campaigns and Communications Lead, joined this project last year to advise research projects on land reform in Scotland. Led by the James Hutton Institute and SRUC, the project aims to 'develop a transdisciplinary, deliberative, knowledge exchange process to determine a new ‘land imaginary’, as well as an action plan to inform the implementation of land reform policy objectives. It also seeks to build consensus and facilitate social learning between and within Scotland’s landownership and land use sector, and to integrate knowledge types to support future land reform policy development.'

On Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st March, Catriona met with stakeholders in person for the first time and took part in meetings and several site visits including a tour of Tornagrain, a new development on the outskirts of Inverness, and discussions at Bunloit estate with Jeremy Leggett, founder of Highlands Rewilding.
