Policy & Lobbying
The role of education in raising awareness of land management practices is of critical importance, and Scottish Land & Estates is committed to working with others such as RHET to ensure that land management is fully integrated into the Curriculum for Excellence.  Scottish Land & Estates also wishes to see the strategy for education widened to encompass of all Scotland’s society, and we will be:
  • Focusing on a communications strategy and associated plan to raise awareness of the positive contribution of land managers
  • Raising awareness of the wealth of public benefits delivered by our members
  • Developing resources which can be used to educate specific sections of society on land management issues

Education is a key component of our access work, and Scottish Land & Estates continues to call for a strong and well funded public outdoor access education campaign.
