The first ever National Ecological Networks Conference was a great success, with nearly 200 visitors from all over the globe in attendance.

Over the two days of the conference, delegates from around the world filled the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh to discuss ecological networks, green infrastructure and Living Landscapes.

The Scottish Wildlife Trust and the RSPB have proposed a groundbreaking National Ecological Network- a vision that we want to be part of Scotland's national planning framework. Click here to read more about the National Ecological Network proposal.

During the conference, delegates heard from architects, planners, economists and politicians on how to develop and fund a sustainable ecological network across Scotland. Over the next few days, we will be uploading exclusive video content from the conference onto our website, along with images and agreed actions from the conference. This is not the end for ecological networks; it is just the beginning of a very exciting development in environmental policy.
