Landscape Scale Conservation Group

The main aims of the Landscape Scale Conservation Group are:

  • To build on good practice to encourage further successful delivery of landscape scale conservation
  • To ensure landscape scale conservation delivery is effectively supported by policy
  • To maximise the contribution made by landscape scale conservation projects to wider policy objectives.

The Group has identified three key tasks for 2017-18:

  • Set up a webpage to share information and promote landscape scale projects through SeWeb external site . This will include mapping, case studies and links to guidance and funding sources. 
  • Establish a Practitioners' Network for people working on landscape scale projects to provide for effective communication, and information sharing.
  • Organise knowledge exchange events through the Practitioner Network, and encourage others to run and promote similar events through the Network.

The Chair of the Landscape Scale Conservation Working Group is Zoe Clelland, RSPB Scotland.

Landscape-Scale Practitioners Event - Two landscape scale practitioners events took place on 1 November 2017 at Glen Finglas and Tomintoul. These informal events were to inspire practitioners with success stories from existing projects, introduce some tools to share good practice, give people time to talk and meet other practitioners and help us find out from you how we can make best use of this network.

  • What Next? The LSC Working Group will now:
  • Write up and circulate the evaluation forms from both events
  • Write up the workshop outputs and circulate these as a plan for future activity
  • Develop the group's workplan for 2018, focusing on the things you've highlighted as a priority
  • Invite everyone who expressed an interest to join the LinkedIn group
  • Send case studies templates to project leads who have volunteered to write one up

What Can You Do?

  • Join LinkedIn if you want to be a member of the group and don't have a profile (several people asked to join but are not on LinkedIn)
  • Keep the discussion going via the LinkedIn group external site
  • Keep the Network in mind when planning events in the future and consider inviting people from other projects
  • View the LSC webpage external site  and send us suggestions for other information you would like to see added
  • Contribute a case study
