Islands Matter Webinar Series

The Institute for Northern Studies is delighted to launch the Islands Matter Webinar Series.

This is a series of webinars set up to address the hunger in the Scottish islands to hear from experts based in other islands worldwide, and to help inform UHI's Islands’ Strategy. James Ellsmoor will deliver the first of the Islands Matter webinars. His talk will inspire attendees to take islands seriously and will set the tone for the series to follow. Between now and Christmas there will talks by Dr Laurie Brinklow co-ordinator of the UNESCO Chair in Island Studies and Sustainability, Institute for Island Studies in Prince Edward Islands, Professor Chik Collins, Rector of the University of the Faroe Islands, Professor Owe Ronström from the Department of Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology Uppsala University, based on Gotland, and Professor Des Thompson, Principal Adviser on Science and Biodiversity at NatureScot.
