Why We Exist
We campaign with communities, on behalf of all landscapes, from the countryside surrounding the places where most people live, to the wilder more remote ones.
The quality of people’s surroundings is central to their well-being, and the quality of Scotland’s countryside is of fundamental importance even to those who spend most of their time in towns and cities. We support communities and individuals to look after and make the most of their local landscapes and we believe that Scotland’s countryside has a key role to play in tackling the climate emergency, addressing the nature crisis and supporting rural recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
About Our Objectives:
- protect and enhance Scotland’s rural landscapes for future generations
- promote effective planning and landscape protection systems
- encourage genuinely sustainable development
- raise awareness of the importance of Scotland’s landscapes to its people and economy
- promote the activity of land managers who care for Scotland’s landscapes
We do this by:
- working in partnership with individuals, other charities, local authority, government and public bodies
- active involvement in national policy development and advocacy
- advising members of the public on how to respond to proposals which affect their local landscapes
- publicising our work to our members and beyond through our website, our newsletter Rural Scotland and email bulletins
