Scottish Rural Action

The Scottish Rural Parliament brings together 400 people from across rural Scotland to discuss the issues of greatest importance to rural communities.

Participants will be agreeing a Manifesto for rural Scotland and deciding what actions need to be taken and by who, to ensure our rural communities are empowered, connected and sustainable.

The Rural Parliament is a participative event. Anyone who lives or works in a rural area can attend the Rural Parliament and anyone attending can decide what will be discussed.
