Community Land Scotland Conference May 2022

Community landowners from across Scotland will be enjoyed an in-person get-together in May in Edinburgh at our annual conference. We wanted to be sure perspectives from the Clyde Valley are there as well, so we sponsored a limited number of bursaries for entrance to the conference and travel costs for community groups in the Clyde Valley.

In 2022 our conference focused on how Scotland can create a fairer society, when land ownership in our rural areas, towns and cities remains the privilege of the few. What impact is this having on people and communities’ access to land and housing? What more can we all do to use Scotland’s land more sustainably? We discussed how Scotland can make a just transition to net zero and the role of community owned land and buildings in generating community wealth and confidence.
