#ruralhour – protecting our natural assets and adapting to environmental change
August 19, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Our next #ruralhour is on Tuesday 19th August from 9-10pm on the subject of protecting our natural assets and adapting to environmental change.
Scotland’s rural areas are abundant with natural assets, from our coastlines and sea life to our mountains and rivers. How de we ensure we protect these assets for the future?
At the same time we need to ensure we adapt to environmental changes by considering energy sources, flood defences, food supplies and other concerns.
The two key questions as always are what are the top challenges under this heading and how do we start addressing these challenges?
All of the #ruralhour discussions will contribute to the Scottish Rural Parliament debates in November 2014.
