Green Flag Award Judges Training

Volunteer Judges from all over the country were trained to assess Scottish parks and join existing judges in assessing over 70 Green Flag Award applications this year.

Green Flag Award parks and green spaces are assessed by a network of volunteer judges who support our aim to make Scotland cleaner, greener and more sustainable. Prior to becoming a Green Flag Award judge, volunteers attend a two-day training course and will initially be paired with a more experienced judge. On 7 and 8 March, 16 new judges came together at the Keep Scotland Beautiful office to receive their training.

Candidates came from Greenspace Scotland, Edinburgh City Council, Midlothian Council, Dundee Council, Dundee, Angus College, Central Scotland Green Network and some of our own staff.

The Green Flag Awards are designed to ensure that these green spaces are appropriately managed and meet the needs of the communities that they serve, to promote and share good practice, and to recognise and reward the hard work of managers, staff and volunteers. Last year, a record number of 70 Scottish parks received a Green Flag.
