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.
