Event description
A panel discussion and Q&A on the issue of depopulation in the north of mainland Scotland

About this event

Caithness and Sutherland are forecast to suffer a drop in population of 9.3 percent and 7.4 percent respectively over the next 10 years. This will have a serious impact on the future sustainability of our communities, our services and our culture. Communities across Scotland are working to address depopulation and the loss of young people from their areas in various ways. These include the development of affordable housing, business space, tourism projects and local services such as shops, pubs and schools.

Community Land Scotland are hosting an event on Tuesday 18th May at 7.00pm to hear from communities across Scotland about their work in reversing population decline, together with local agency and support organisations who can help communities with this work.

The events are free and will comprise of short presentations followed by a panel discussion and open Q&As for members of the public. Questions can also be submitted in advance and the event will be recorded.

Questions can also be submitted in advance and the event will be recorded.

This is the first in a series of 3 events being held focussing on community led development in Caithness and Sutherland between May and June 2021. Future events will address community regeneration and resilience and how communities can contribute positively to climate action.
