Since the first modern community buyout, of the Isle of Eigg in 1997, hundreds of communities across Scotland have taken ownership of land and buildings – revitalising their areas and building community confidence. The systems, democratic structures and entrepreneurial culture they have created have stood their communities in good stead during the Covid19 crisis.

In the run up to this event, Community Land Scotland and the Community Woodlands Association will be publishing a report on how community landowners, including community woodlands groups, have supported their communities through the Covid19 crisis.

In this panel discussion, we look at how community landowners have responded to the crisis and what can be learned for the economic recovery and beyond.

Introduction by: Linsay Chalmers, Community Land Scotland

Panel discussion chaired by: Agnes Rennie, Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn (Galson Estate Trust)
