Join Carnegie UK Trust and Community Land Scotland for a two-part webinar series exploring the opportunities and challenges associated with community ownership in towns.

The challenges facing towns are not new but have become even more acute over the course of the pandemic. With a real need to rethink the regeneration of towns beyond the high street, our aim is to facilitate a thought-provoking and enlightening event that brings together a range of perspectives from some of the pioneering groups taking on this challenge. We’ll be looking at the holistic approach required to tackle key issues and the innovative thinking required for community ownership to really shape the future of towns.
