Challenging Upland Futures

October 5, 2021
Perth, Scotland

‘Challenging Upland Futures’ will be a public forum with the aim, agreed by a range of diverse stakeholders, to integrate knowledge and understanding on the uplands of Scotland, and to agree priority actions to help ensure that our uplands deliver the widest possible range of benefits.

The event will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Centre for Mountain Studies at Perth College UHI, which has convened many previous events. It comes at a time when finding constructive ways forward in Scotland’s uplands is more urgent than ever, in a range of overlapping contexts.

The MOVING partner, The James Hutton Institute, will present the ongoing work of the project, focusing on the Scottish value chain and mountain reference region (Malt Whisky from the upper Speyside).
