Community Coronavirus responses

Community landowners have been very active in the coordination of community responses. On this page, we take a look at what some of our Members have been doing.


Built-in Resilience: Community Landowners’ Responses to the Covid19 Crisis

You can listen to a recording from a panel discussion on Friday 19th June 2020 which explored how community landowners have responded to the crisis and what can be learned for the economic recovery and beyond.

You can listen to our Policy Director Calum MacLeod talk about the report on the Good Morning Scotland programme on Saturday, 13th June 2020.
