Join an expert panel to consider how we can build a sustainable future for urban Scotland, putting communities at the heart of regeneration.

About this Event

Life in Scotland’s towns and cities is forecast to change significantly in the coming decades. Cities are set to continue to grow, facing the challenge of providing housing and services for new populations, while the role and place of towns in Scotland remains uncertain as traditional high streets disappear and services are increasingly centralised.

With these predicted changes likely to offer both opportunities and challenges, what role is there for communities in the regeneration of urban Scotland? What successes can we learn from within Scotland, and how can we build sustainable communities for the future?

Join an expert panel to discuss the challenges and trends, explore the potential futures ahead of us, and consider the outcomes we want to achieve by 2030.
