The event will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Centre for Mountain Studies at Perth College UHI, which has convened many previous events. It comes at a time when finding constructive ways forward in Scotland’s uplands is more urgent than ever, in a range of overlapping contexts. These include:
- the global climate emergency and Scotland’s Land Use Strategy
- debates about grouse and deer management, especially in the light of recent developments in the management of grouse moors and deer
- land reform, community engagement, and sustainability
- biodiversity, (re)wilding, and re/afforestation
- ideas for an uplands vision that emerged from a consultation process led by NatureScot
- the COVID-19 pandemic and its diverse impacts
