Scotland's Local Environmental Quality Seminar 2021/22

Scotland's Local Environmental Quality seminar took place on 21 October 2021 online

With the Scottish Government committed to bringing forward a consultation paper later in 2021 on a new national litter and flytipping strategy, this online event provided an opportunity for a broad range of stakeholders from all sectors to come together and discuss how we can improve local environmental quality across Scotland.

Following on from the successful Litter Summit in March 2021, this event included an overview of local environmental quality in Scotland, including the latest data and research from Keep Scotland Beautiful, a chance to hear more about the developing national litter and flytipping strategy, and to network and share best practice.
