Events

Location: Cumbernauld

This year’s CWA conference will take place on Friday 20th & Saturday 21st October 2017 at the Westwood Hotel, Cumbernauld. There will be a change to the usual format this year: the conference will start on Friday and the CWA will be welcoming groups from the rest of the UK who are involved in the Making Local Woods Work project. This Lottery-funded project aims to help people create social enterprises in local unmanaged woodlands so they can grow into sustainable businesses, creating new areas of employment and training to benefit their communities. This project hopes to open up much-needed access to the natural environment to provide opportunities for economic growth and encourages better engagement with the outdoors, resulting in better health and wellbeing for those involved.

This year’s conference will be much bigger than usual, with 150 delegates expected – including 50 or more from outside Scotland. As well as presentations and a plenary session, there will also be a number of hour-long workshops. CWA are seeking suggestions for workshop topics from members. Suggestions should be emailed to Caroline at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If you would like to deliver a presentation or workshop at the conference, please get in touch with CWA.
