Community Land Scotland

Dùthchas: Our Land, Everyone’s Future

Dùthchas, the Gaelic concept of the connection between land and people, natural heritage and cultural belonging, was the theme of this event by Community Land Scotland. Ecological restoration and climate change mitigation efforts must respect the people that live on or near the land. Join us to explore communities’ vital role in advocating for and stewarding the land in the face of the climate emergency.
