The virtual Scottish Rural Parliament, held earlier this year, has published its session reports which will share over the coming weeks.
Whilst a dedicated Housing Session was not held at the 2021vSRP as the curators – Rural Housing Scotland – had recently delivered their Rural Housing Summit in February 2021 and published a comprehensive manifesto, the sessions on Transport and 20 Minute Neighbourhoods are an important follow-on from our Island Voices recording on Housing and emphasise the interconnectedness of these issues.

This free, virtual session is an opportunity for rural and island young people aged 16-25 to collectively reimagine the future of their communities. Facilitated by the Social Enterprise Academy, the fully interactive session will also provide an opportunity for young people to question decision makers such as Maree Todd, Minister for Children and Young People and Bruce Adamson, The Children and Young People’s Commissioner. The outputs of the session will contribute to other sessions of the Scottish Rural Parliament and help to influence rural policy.
To attend, register for the Scottish Rural Parliament and select the Youth Session when asked.
