What is the Scottish Rural & Islands Parliament?

The Scottish Rural & Islands Parliament 2023 is a platform where passionate individuals, community leaders, and policymakers come together to address the pressing issues affecting rural areas and islands in Scotland. It’s an opportunity to exchange ideas, collaborate on solutions, and shape the future of rural and island Scotland. A member of the European-wide network of Rural Parliaments, the Scottish Rural Parliament takes place every two years, each time hosted by a different rural community.
