Keeping Scotland beautiful - a series of national conversations

We know that there are thousands of you across Scotland working to keep Scotland beautiful, and we thought it would be nice to bring people together from all corners of the country to hear from influential, knowledgeable and inspiring individuals and organisations who are taking real action to combat climate change, tackle litter and waste, restore biodiversity and nature and improve place.

So, we’ve put together a series of FREE online themed national conversations, linked to our strategy and four key strategic objectives, to help you understand the environmental challenges of our time and inspire and encourage positive action.

Pop the dates for our upcoming events in your diary and please come to hear about practical action being taken by people who are truly making a difference.

Prepare to be inspired.

 

Our series of national conversations

We have four national conversations planned over the coming months.  More details on speakers will be released closer to the time, and recordings of the events will be made available here for those who can’t attend on the day to watch back.

All events will be hosted on MS Teams and facilitated and chaired by Keep Scotland Beautiful.  Registration will be through Eventbrite and links will be added here as we open them to you.
