A Changing Landscape - Making the Most of Our Natural Assets


St John's Town of Dalry, Town Hall

Friday, January 26, 2018 from 12:00 PM -
5:00 PM
A key reason for reason for much of South West Scotland having been designated as the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere is its long history of agriculture and forestry which has shaped our landscapes, our biodiversity, our local economy and our local communities.

With changes on the horizon leading to;
Increased pressures for afforestation, particularly of commercial monoculture
The intensification of livestock farming in our lowlands
A threat to the sustainability of hill and upland farming from BREXIT
… the makeup of our region is going to change.

Join us for a networking lunch followed by an afternoon exploring how we can address the issues and opportunities that key industry representatives see influencing the future of land based industries in South West Scotland

Anne Gray Senior Policy Officer Scottish Land and Estate
Johnnie Hall Director of Policy NFUS
Colin Kennedy Director Scottish Woodlands and CONFOR representative
Sir Patrick Hunter Blair Blairquhan Estate

The afternoon will follow a ‘Question Time’ format  exploring the sectoral interests of agriculture and forestry,  the scope for integration  and   opportunities for reconciling these interests.

Light Lunch from 12 noon - Event starts 12.30pm - 5pm
