Our new Landscape Leadership programme enables ambitious and forward-looking individuals to take action against the biggest challenges facing Scotland and the world: wildlife collapse and climate change.
The programme brings together a network of leaders who want to work collaboratively towards a sustainable land management movement in Scotland.
Participants develop the strategic and leadership skills needed to make transformative environmental change at a landscape scale.
The goal of the programme is to enable, empower, and connect influential leaders across Scotland, building their capacity to make change. This will feed into an environmental movement in Scotland that will embed positive change across the rural sector.
Why are we running the programme?
We are facing potentially devastating impacts of climate change, and we need land management that provides environmental, economic and social benefits, to help build a more resilient rural sector.
Who is involved?
The programme is being delivered over the course of four residential sessions between January and April 2020, with each session running over two days.
The sessions take place within inspirational settings around Scotland, including Drumlanrig Castle, Loch Lomond, Holyrood, and the Rottal Estate.
Participants work towards a Leadership Development Plan to balance economic, social and environmental priorities within the landscape they manage, influence policy in Scotland, and engage with communities and stakeholders. They also put together a Personal Development Plan to develop their strategic and leadership skills.
Leadership coaching between sessions helps participants turn their aspirations into tailored project plans they can act on.
We’re delighted to welcome this year’s participants in the Landscape Leadership programme:
