A series of evenings discussing future land use in Scotland, presented by SEDA on conjunction with The James Hutton Institute.

Over the course of six weeks, nearly 50 of the best-informed speakers on all aspects of rural land use will engage in six “conversations” — each focused on a different aspect of how land is used and how it could be better used, in Scotland. The speakers will include LEAF (Linking Environment  And Farming) CEO Caroline Drummond, social entrepreneur and former Greenpeace scientific  director Jeremy Leggett, Glasgow University economist Prof Ronald MacDonald, NatureScot CEO  Francesca Osowska, Director Crown Estate Scotland & Corrour Estate Hugh Raven, representing sectors from farming, forestry, renewable energy, to tourism and landowners.

Joining the speakers will be a selection  carefully curated contributions from Scotland-based poets and musicians, intended to  stimulate fresh ways of thinking. Musicians and  artists who will participate include Hamish Napier, Pau de Planet, Su-a Lee, Chris Powici, Kirsty  Law and The Poozies.
