Scottish Natural Heritage, PeatlandACTION and Eurosite are pleased to host a “climate buffers” study tour for site managers, project managers, nature conservation ecologists and policy makers, as well as government officials and landscape engineers. The study tour is an initiative of the Eurosite Wetlands and Climate Change working group and will be looking at nature-based solutions to climate change adaptation that are taking place in Scotland. A new leaflet on Natural Climate Buffers will also be disseminated for the first time during the study tour.
The tour includes visits to locations across Scotland where objectives for climate adaptation, nature conservation, water resource management and sustainable development are being jointly realised. Participants will learn about the practical techniques that have been deployed in a variety of locations including the coast, urban, freshwater, peatland and wetland environments. The tour will include demonstration and discussion of practical techniques, the journey of projects from an idea to practical realisation and the integration of individual projects into wider habitat networks.
The tour will concentrate on the central lowlands of Scotland – from the famous coastal links golf course of St Andrews, to the low-lying peatlands and wetlands of the Forth valley, including Flanders Moss which is the largest raised bog in the UK, and central Glasgow.
The event is open to members and non-members. Please find the terms and conditions for participation here.
