Land Revival competition: learn about ecological and community restoration

Don’t miss this opportunity to win three different two-day tours through the landscapes of woodlands, forests and their communities (outline). Each tour will visit a cluster of sites in different parts of Scotland during the summer and autumn. This is a great networking opportunity to meet other upcoming professionals in your industry and is open to all young members throughout the UK. You will spend in total six days experiencing, listening and debating the future of Scotland’s land use.

ICF’s Education & Scientific Trust will sponsor the cost of the tour to one lucky winner. It will provide up to £650 towards your travel and accommodation costs.

Three Tours, One Experience

On June 28-29 you will be visiting a large ecological restoration site at Glen Feshie plus smaller community projects which work with the local forest in the northern Cairngorms. The second tour will take place on 23-24 August in southern Scotland around the Moffat area. You will be visiting the impressive Wildwood project and have the opportunity to learn about riparian woodland restoration, foraging and the use of biomass. The final tour will be held on 18-19 October in north central Scotland, around Kilsyth, looking at land reclamation through reforestation, hunting and building resilient communities through green networks.

Why attend?

You will be left inspired by what you see and by the people who are making the ideas and vision become a reality. This experience will give you the chance to take part in active discussions on the positive and negative parts of each project and learn from others to help influence what Scotland’s future land-use could look like.
