SRA hosted a workshop at The Gathering to introduce people to the Scottish Rural Parliament. Thirty-two people attended and listened to a presentation by Chair John Hutchison and Coordinator Emma Cooper.
Participants took part in a workshop designed and led by volunteers from the Art of Hosting. The workshop explored participants best experiences of engaging people in rural communities and asked for their number one recommendation to the Scottish Rural Parliament in doing so.
Recommendations included a toolkit which organisations can use to deliver their own local Rural Parliament event which can feed into the November Scottish Rural Parliament; ensuring the message about what the Rural Parliament is; and making it fun.
Thank you to all participants for your advice and support and to the Art of Hosting volunteers, Pamela Galbreith and Gordon.
