Forum 2019

2019 Central Scotland Green Network Forum

Thursday 6 June 2019
Hamish Wood Building, Glasgow Caledonian University

This year’s conference was presented in partnership with the Scottish Land Commission and was supported by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.

Over 9,000 hectares of the CSGN area is classified as vacant and derelict; this accounts for 78% of Scotland’s total. It holds huge potential to help make better places that support health and wellbeing, help boost the economy and mitigate against the challenges of climate change. In addition, by rejuvenating these areas communities stand to benefit from increased engagement and empowerment, tackling social inequalities while increasing local pride and ownership.
