10 lead­ers needed for en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A new lead­er­ship pro­gramme to tackle wildlife col­lapse and cli­mate change is be­ing pi­loted by two ru­ral bod­ies.

The Land­scape Lead­er­ship pro­gramme is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Soil As­so­ci­a­tion Scot­land and Scot­tish Land & Es­tates (SLE).

An ini­tial co­hort of 10 par­tic­i­pants will be given train­ing over four two­day res­i­den­tial ses­sions be­tween Jan­uary and April next year.

“This new lead­er­ship pro­gramme is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple who own or man­age land to en­sure they can fu­ture­proof their busi­ness,” said SLE head of pol­icy, Stephen Young.

“We are in a pe­riod of con­sid­er­able change in our sec­tor with am­bi­tious cli­mate change tar­gets, chal­leng­ing mar­ket con­di­tions and we now, more than ever, need strong and clear-think­ing lead­ers. That’s why we are de­lighted to be in­volved in this new ini­tia­tive.”

The dead­line to ap­ply is Novem­ber 22. More de­tails are at www.soilas­so­ci­a­tion. org/land­scape­lead­er­ship
