The Islands Revival project is raising the profile of “green shoots” of demographic recovery by gathering observations and evidence of positive population change from across the Scottish islands and beyond. By doing so, we aim to identify ways to support revival of the islands in the future, through policy and practice. The project comes at an important time for the islands, with the development of the National Islands Plan, and provides an opportunity to share experiences and practice with other island communities, policy-makers and international experts.
We are currently inviting contributions to the Islands Revival blog. If you have an observation or evidence that you would like to share, see here for further details or get in touch with any questions.
Islands Revival is funded by the Scottish Government-funded SEFARI Responsive Opportunity Initiative. It is a knowledge exchange project between The James Hutton Institute, CoDeL, SRUC and Community Land Scotland.
