Description

Who possesses this landscape? – The man who bought it or I who am possessed by it? (Norman McCaig)

This session brings together a fantastic group of speakers, each with a particular relationship with a geographic area. The panel will discuss how they strike an often-complex balance between the wellbeing and sustainability of the environment, the needs of the communities in and around them, and the desire of the wider population to access places that inspire and refresh them. They will also offer a sharp insight into the range of new opportunities technology and innovation bring and how creative thinking can drive sensitive and stable progress.
