A joint celebration of our iconic uplands and brilliant blanket bogs hosted by the Moors for the Future Partnership and IUCN UK Peatland Programme. The conference will provide an opportunity to connect with people working on upland and lowland peatland restoration, clough woodland regeneration and upland meadows.
The Scottish Government today announced funding of £8 million over the next year to support peatland restoration under the Peatland Action scheme. The announcement was made by Climate Change Secretary Roseanna Cunningham on a visit to Scottish Wildlife Trust's Red Moss of Balerno nature reserve in Edinburgh. It follows proposals in Scotland’s draft Climate Change Plan for 250,000 hectares of peatlands to be restored by 2032, by providing a fund that communities and land managers can apply for.
