Arts, culture and heritage
There is still time to book your spot on one of four exciting free project visits taking place as part of the Scottish Rural Parliament 2018 in Stranraer.
On 14 November you can join groups on the following project visits:
Part-funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig and produced in collaboration with social enterprise Earth For Life, this bespoke learning resource will help to connect young people with nature through sustainable foraging. The resource will equip Gaelic-medium teachers with the necessary skills, knowledge and vocabulary for wild plant identification and use.
The project was launched last week at the Royal National Mòd in Dunoon by Angus Campbell, SNH Deputy Chairman.
The new Natural & Cultural Heritage Fund, led by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) will support projects that encourage visitors to experience more of the unique nature and culture of the Highlands & Islands. The fund is part of the next phase of the Scottish Government’s European Regional Development Fund programme, which runs through to 2023. SNH is also managing another element of the programme – the Green Infrastructure Fund.
The 2018 Scottish Rural Parliament will take place in Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway on 14th– 16th November. If you live in or are passionate about rural areas in Scotland, you can attend to learn and make your voice heard. This year's theme is "Taking Action".
The event brings together people from rural communities with decision-makers, for three days of celebration and exploration. Participants examine a wide-range of issues affecting rural communities and make recommendations for change.
