Scotland 2030: Our Environment

How resilient and well-functioning will Scotland’s environment be?

As part of the Scotland 2030 Programme, and on the basis that a strong society and economy can exist in the long term only if the environment – land, air and water – are functioning well, we are investigating what Scotland's environment might look like in 2030.

Asking the question "How resilient and well-functioning will Scotland's environment be?", Dr Stephanie Smitha post-doctoral researcher from Scotland’s Rural College, has immersed herself in reviewing current trends, scientific research and evidence-based approaches to predict how Scotland may change. 

In a fellowship funded by the Scottish Environment, Food and Agriculture Research Institutes, Steph has produced a research report, a series of "Wish you were here?" postcards from 2030 and a blog about her experience. Click the pictures below to read them.
