Institute for Northern Studies PhD candidate Adele Lidderdale discusses sustainable development in the Scottish Islands.
Adele Lidderdale graduated from Orkney College, UHI, with a Bsc in Sustainable Rural Development (SRD) in 2012 then completing a Msc in the same subject in 2022 where she completed her dissertation on the experience of women in green jobs in rural areas. She has had a fulfilling career here in the Isles working in the renewables industry for EMEC and Orkney Islands Council in various roles including data technician, hydrogen project manager and Climate Change Officer. She has recently embarked on a PhD to evaluate the implementation and efficacy of the Scottish National Islands plan in supporting the Islands development aspirations.
The Islands Matter webinars are the result of a collaboration between Dr Andrew Jennings Institute for Northern Studies UHI, Professor Frank Rennie UHI Outer Hebrides and Dr Beth Mouat UHI Shetland . This series of webinars was set up to address the hunger in the Scottish islands to hear from experts based in other islands worldwide, and to help inform the UHI Islands’ Strategy.
