The fourth Scottish Rural Parliament is in full swing as we publish this episode. Previous gatherings have taken place in different parts of Scotland – Oban in 2014, Brechin in 2016 and Stranraer in 2018.
This time, due to the ongoing Covid situation, the event is taking place entirely online.
The aim of the assembly is to bring together people who live and work in rural and island Scotland, to ensure that issues they care about are brought to the attention of decision-makers and influencers. Anna’s been taking part, hearing from other attendees, and speaking with one of the organisers, acting chair of Scottish Rural Action Theona Morrison.
