Our Living Landscape: Communities Leading Change

Wednesday 18 August 2021 – 10am

Based in the far north west of Scotland, the Coigach & Assynt Living Landscape initiative covers the largest area of any such partnership in the country. At its heart is a group of community, charity and private landowners and charities working together to improve both the environmental and economic prospects of this very remote part of Scotland.

Over the past five years we have been delivering a programme of over 30 projects, led by the Scottish Wildlife Trust, and supported though the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Projects have included upgrading and creating almost 13km of paths, including routes over the iconic mountains of Quinag and Suilven; nearly 600ha of native woodlands planted and managed; innovative training programmes for deer management and crofters; and an outdoor woodland learning project that has worked with every school in the area.

As the current programme comes to an end this free, online conference will:

  • showcase what has been achieved
  • share our experience and knowledge
  • give participants the opportunity to discuss all aspects of the partnership with the staff team, partners and project leads
  • give participants the opportunity to network with other practitioners in the field of landscape-scale conservation
